I am an UX Designer from the FinTech industry and I have been following the cryptospace since early 2017. I first started out with Ethereum, using the official wallet & Mist. I thought that these wallets were too technical, and not user friendly enough for mass adoption. When I realized that many other wallets (Core-Wallets anyone?) are even worse I decided to do something about it. I first started with Digibyte, now moving to EOS.
Why UX matters
When we want to achieve mass adoption in this space good UX is crucial. Besides from the design itself — which should stay simple and uncluttered but expandable if the user want to get into details — additional functionalities overall enhance the experience and make it more accessible to everyone, not only the techies!
What can be done?
I've created a list with a couple of features that came into my mind. Feel free to add to this list in the comments below so I can see what is important to you.
- Notification about backups (or even automated backups)
- Displaying balance in a value-proposition the user can pick himself (BTC, BTS, USD, EUR etc.)
- Built in tutorials
- Statistics section with graphical indicators
- Fancy animations
I made some basic screens for an EOS wallet. Please let me know what you think about it and what is important to you when you use a desktop wallet.
Overview with expanded details
Confirm EOS transaction with password
Your opinion is asked now!
As you have seen nothing fancy is going on in here at the moment, only a transaction list (overview), sending EOS and adding contacts. I am at the very beginning but I'd like to make a wallet design based on feedback from the EOS community. I hope block.one can also benefit from it and possibly adopt one or another feature or design decisions requested by the community, requested by you.
Note: I am not contracted by block.one. I wish I could put more time and effort into EOS development/collaboration work though. Having a full time job I currently only have time on weekends, so don't expect superfast progress.
