Crystal Ball Gazing: UX/UI Layer

You will be able to tell Aunt Betty how to buy Bitcoin without introducing her to SBF

*Assume I am invested in products mentioned. Not because Im paid but because I believe there is an opportunity

Step changes within industry and cultures happen over layers. Summer 2020 saw the inception of financial primitives that were, let's say, very primitive.


While replication is a form of flattery, it doesn't exactly translate to immediate practical applications. Decentralized finance at that time arguably created more friction and benefited only the most seasoned degens at the expense of less experienced users. But, as with all breeding grounds, seeds are sown that grow into structures capable of withstanding the most ferocious weather.


During the winter months, these primitives were iterated on, hacked, used, and ultimately processed billions of dollars in capital. Many scaling issues were semi-solved by faster layers like Solana or complementary Ethereum layers like Optimism. One issue remains: open design space due to problems that will be solved in the near future, namely wallets, fragmented liquidity, and composability across the multi-layered layers.


This coming summer, we will see the UX/UI layer refined to the point that when your Aunt Betty asks to buy some bitcoin or earn better returns on her money than a traditional bank, there will be a decentralized alternative to Coinbase, Binance, or FTX.... cough, cough....

Some of the building blocks that will enable this are:

  • Account abstraction

  • Passkeys

  • Mature DeFi primitives

All wrapped up in an easy-to-use interface that will become as familiar as a bank account but easier.
