The goal:Design a new user-friendly trading flow that is simple to understand and easy to use.
Key Challenges and Constraints:Our key challenge was to design a user-friendly trading flow that was simple to understand and easy to use.
Low Fidelity design
We used the wireframes and created a user flow that could simulate the essential portions of the app. Since this project added a new user flow to an existing app, we went through multiple iterations and smoothed out the challenge user flow.
Low Fidelity prototyping
Here is the digital cents Lo-fi Prototype created with Figma.

Usability study: findingsThese were the main findings uncovered by the usability study:
- Users find it easier to think in terms of their local currency
- Users get frustrated going back and forth and adjusting amounts and currencies
- Users are most comfortable when things are laid out simply
- Users want to know when transactions will be final
Web first designWe developed high-fidelity wireframes and prototypes for the app that scale from desktop to mobile using graceful degradation techniques.
High Fidelity design and prototyping
Here is the digital cents Hi-fi Prototype created with Figma.
Here are the mockups turned into a high-fidelity prototype. This version displays the desktop version. The site's trading flow is represented, including the home page, currency portfolio page, currency list page, currency details page, trading page, and the submit page.
