Cryptocurrency markets are currently trading in a sideways manner. Bitcoin is currently trading at around $9,000 which is  below the $10,000 psychological mark. For alternate currencies, also known as altcoins, the price drop has been much more severe. A sharp rise or fall in the price of bitcoin, leads to huge price losses for alt coins.

Some of these coins are currently trading below close to the Initial Coin Offer (ICO) price, making them quite attractive. ICO stands for Initial Coin Offering. It is a means whereby companies raise capital either for a new coin or a project. To participate, individuals pay a certain amount of money either as bitcoin or ethereum. ICOs have witnessed a huge surge last year due to the huge returns made after listing.

Medical Chain is currently trading on popular exchanges such as Huobi and Kucoin. A circulating supply of 185 million coins and a current market capitalization of $27 million, means the coin could easily double or triple.
