UX patterns for decentralized apps

Members of Blockchain Lab:UM have explored the user experience of decentralized applications.

We studied the characteristics of blockchain, which contribute to the specifics of their user experience, and identified the biggest challenges in this area. Based on the literature review, we collected existing good practices and design patterns of user experience. We verified and supplemented them with an analysis of eight decentralized applications.

As a result, we have published an online library of user experience design patterns for dApps, containing twenty-one patterns. We examined the application of design patterns used in centralized applications and found that most of the observed patterns successfully solve the user experience challenges of dApps.
