if its above 10$ in 5 years then you are doing well based on the growth in breadth of the altcoin market.
the critical thing is making the right moves from an adoption context.
choosing the right exchanges early in the game is important as exchanges like cryptopia are were pump and dumps are more prone, unlike bittrex, though they have very different requirements in order to get on their exchanges.
2nd is mobile wallets, alot of the time its better to get into a renown wallet like jaxx.io etc compared to having your own mobile wallet, but having a mobile wallet is better then not having one etc.
before the mobile wallet though you need pool support from the likes of yimp, flypool and suprnova.cc
