In traditional business, it's pretty clear to know and understand when a businesses is dead. You can check business licenses, store fronts, email addresses, websites, or get in touch with someone. In the decentralized crypto token world, things seem to be a little more ambiguous. What are some ways to audit a token's status of being alive or dead?

I would suggest to check developments on github or official channels. Active project usually have a lot of activity on github or push out a lot of other developments that are being actively discussed within the crypto community like on slack channels. Another point is: if you cannot reliably measure the progress of a company or project, maybe you should not invest in it or keep the exposure very limited.
