Clash of Expectations: Blockchain Products and Usability

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Blockchains are a new technology built on unique interactions, yet many people using this technology are bringing conventional expectations. The end result is confusion – a confusion deep enough to prevent mainstream adoption.

In this session, we will review 10 of the top UX heuristics and compare them to blockchain products today.

What will students learn?
We will review the good, the bad and the ugly of user experience in blockchains, and what individuals can do to promote a good user experience going forward.

This course is appropriate for people new to the industry, professionals, and blockchain developers who want to understand how to incorporate good UX into their projects.
