Hi everyone, based on feedback over the past month or so, we are considering a few changes to the app that may help solve some pain points. Here are some rough mockups to help you visualize what these might look like.
1. Remove ‘Unshield’ from the main Asset screen, and combine with Send.
Reasons for: Users initially had trouble locating send out-network. with the text hints, these issues seem to be solved - but would it be more intuitive overall to just merge the unshield action with Send?
Another unexpected issue has also arisen - the button placements (Shield / Unshield) seem to be communicating to some first time users that they are able to hold both shielded and unshielded coins in their keychains…
Reasons against: For the sake of consistency - the deposit/withdraw logic is on the main screen of some other features, such as Provide, and soon, Add. The initial issues of users being unable to locate send out-network (possibly an expectation left over from the old app), also seems to have been solved by text hints.
Shielding is of course an essential concept, and arguably, it requires its partner ‘Unshield’ to teach users what Incognito’s value proposition is: protect your crypto.
What do you think?
- Merge Unshield with Send
- Keep Unshield as is
2. Display PRV balances in keychain selection.
Here we have 3 options - the first (address only), is the current one in your app, and is the default screen for any time you toggle between Keychains.
The second (balance only) is a suggestion by @mike_despo, which includes your PRV balance (PRV only). I originally thought perhaps a total balance in PRV (across all currencies) would be helpful for users who own other currencies besides PRV, but loading times would be mega miserable.
The third (address + balance) combines both. Do you guys refer to the addresses here - do they need to be included?
Bearing in mind that options 2 and 3 are likely to need some extra time to load (though not as much as getting total shielded balance),
What would you like to see?
- Address only (keep as is)
- PRV balance only
- Address + PRV Balance
3. Add option to top up PRV from other keychains to chosen Provide keychain.
This might be useful for users who have multiple keychains with multiple balances. Essentially, it will allow you to top up PRV, BTC, USDT, etc. to the keychain you are using in Provide, and will allow you to see currency-specific balances across keychains.
Example: let’s say you are currently using your keychain ‘Bob’ for Provide. You can top up ‘Bob’ with PRV from ‘Anon’. Once your new ‘Bob’ balance has updated, you can provide from there. Note that this top up feature will not automatically send funds to the Pool - it simply helps you consolidate your funds. You will still need to tap Provide.
Is this useful to you?
- I would like a top up option
- I would not use it
As always, you have any other comments or suggestions, we’d love to hear them.
