What are the important criteria that you look at when deciding which crypto to invest in? Here are a few that I find important but want to hear from the community as well:

1.   Premined?
2.   Algorithm/Security (PoW/PoS/Hybrid)
3.   Inflation (coins per day/daily tax on network)
4.   Longevity (new, dead, etc)
5.   Website
6.   Block Explorer
7.   Paper Wallet Generator
8.     Innovation
9.     Marketing
10.   Community

I think one of the key factors is in building a community that has sustainable organic growth. That's the ticket.

How can you quantify that?

You might measure the total amount of activity across all community platforms like, reddit, bitcointalk, forums, facebook, twitter, etc. At some point there needs to develop an autonomous nature to this energy, like a locomotive that begins gaining steam under it's own power.

Exactly!

You could have the best altcoin ever. but without active members and without an active community as a whole you got nothing!

Let me ask a question in return.

Do people invest dollars in to dollars as an investment, or do they invest in to something else to get more dollars for the future?

The goal is to find the currency that you will use every day in the future, if you find a currency with this potential then are you investing? will you be taking your "investment" back out for some other currency you would not be using at that time?

At some point there will be the transition (if you are lucky) where your investment was not an investment, but rather you just got your future daily use currency before other people, and no doubt a larger share than would be common at such a transitional time.

The comments here provide you with very good feedback. I would encourage you to think further before you swap any currency for any other, what is your goal? You are in the forum where we invent future currency, to be here with the intention of "investing" to increase holdings of fiat which we are working to replace, would perhaps make little sense. This is also true of "investing" in some coin based currency you feel you do not want to use as currency in the future.

If you really want to invest, join projects and discussions and invest your time and skills.

If you are looking at a longterm investment, it is:

1. Real user community
2. Real user community
