7 Upcoming ICO, IDO & IEOs To Watch In 2021

A combination of factors, such as higher institutional investment in the cryptocurrency market, the NFT (non-fungible token) boom and the popularity of meme coins such as Dogecoin (CRYPTO: DOGE)  and SafeMoon (CRYPTO: SAFEMOON), has led to a massive number of new cryptos entering the market in 2021.

More than 2,655 new crypto assets were added to its database by data aggregator CoinMarketCap this year. Other platforms like CoinGecko and Coinpaprika added 3,064 and 2000 new crypto assets, respectively.
