thank you @JoyRaptor! i had a look over at the main topic. looks beautiful.
here are some boring wet blanket comments:
1. we initially had price changes on the app, but as we are currently pulling prices from the pDEX (which has pretty low volume on a number of pairs), these look pretty wack - so we removed it for now. in addition, the currency would need to actually be on the pDEX to record a price (it wouldn’t make sense to pull from say CMC for some, and pDEX for others).
many pairs have also been in existence for a very short period of time, and highly volatile in periods of low liquidity, so information might be quite puzzling to users that don’t understand the context of pDEX history. i hope this is something that will change, of course! i really like what you’ve done with visualizing price data.
2. about keeping a USD value - the team was pretty divided on this, but it was ultimately decided to use PRV as a reference (currency for the privacy world), which would also perhaps deflect speculation somewhat. having said all that, we are considering adding a toggle for USD!
3. this was another debated topic (still being debated) - we removed icons in the app to make it cleaner, but humans are visual creatures of course. we’re still actively discussing this, so this might change also - and in which case, i’d love to integrate your shielded icons!
4. personally, as a bit of a data nerd, i love what you’ve done with many of these screens. but in terms of building for a certain audience - it was a conscious decision to remove a lot of the old features (the app used to look quite different!) and put forward this fairly clean, minimal version - for casual users who don’t need the additional insight, and might be confused when given more options.
however, the project is still in a very early stage - and while some of the app references you mentioned have very clear target audiences, our value proposition is simply ‘privacy’ - and privacy believers come in all forms. we’re still actively experimenting, and trying to build a core product that is usable by a majority of people - some of whom will be completely new to crypto (many of whom discovered Incognito and crypto in general via the Node device).
at the same time, we have many community members building for different audiences - such as a web wallet catered more towards investors, a web dex for more sophisticated traders, etc.
thank you for taking the time to post these assets - i really enjoyed looking through them, and i think you have some really exciting concepts here. in this message, i just wanted to share some of our design rationales, and give you a bit of context as to why things are currently the way they are.
anyone who’s been here for more than a month will testify to the app evolving pretty fast - we are not attached to any one idea, and are always happy to chase the best way forward. would love to have your thoughts on that. as you’ll note in the roadmap in this topic and in other topics in the building category, we’re pretty stacked re development resources as we’ll need to implement quite a few important features in the coming months, and fix existing issues.
interface might have to take a back seat briefly, but it doesn’t mean we can’t chat about it. i would love to continue this conversation - let me know if you’d like to connect. i notice some of my team members have also directed you towards the Builder Rewards program, so that might be a possible way forward to materialize your vision. you’d have my vote!
