Daedalus wallet UX design suggestion


#1

I’m seeing a lot of posts in the technical discussion category where people are unprepared for and confused about the long time it takes syncing the wallet for the first time.

I honestly believe users will benefit from a small message or tool tip that warns them that first time syncing is a time consuming task. And that the next time you sync the process will be much smoother.

Cheers, keep up the great work.

This is a good point. A future version will allow you to enter the wallet without being fully synced. But for now, it is a full client that needs to sync the whole blockchain before use. We are working on a light client, which most people would prefer.

Quick question. When the new version of the wallet comes out how will the update be applied by those with the existing wallet?


#4

There is an updating system in place. You have to agree to the update, download it and restart.

I have a suggestion for the Deadalus UX. This is going to sound crazy to seasoned people but the part of the wallet where you generate addresses is confusing. I actually eneded up having an argument with my wife about it. She has used many crypto exchanges etc for the past 6 months.

In Recieve, I would suggest showing just one valid receive address at a time. When you generate the firstst new address which I did becasue I was new and wondering which of the two initial addresses should I use (it’s not obvious they are identical) you end up with 3 addresses on the screen, 2 are identical. This is not good for inexperienced, or new users, it seems as though a dynamic address also throws off users with experience in other crypto related interfaces since may do not have dynamic addresses.

I hope this suggestion is helpful.

Hi, I noticed for the first time the show used link next to the Generated addresses title. That helps remove the clutter, I don’t recall if I opened the generated addresses myself or not maybe I did, causing myself confusion…
