A platform that provides traders with robust data needs
Founded in 2016 by the creators of JPMorgan's 1st blockchain, Kadena is currently the only scalable layer 1 PoW blockchain.
In 2022, the growth of Kadena development skyrocketed with the launch of Kadena NFTs and DeFi. Traders needed more extensive blockchain activity analytics.
Kadena Blockchain Explorer ↗, while providing crucial information on Kadena activity, doesn’t provide enough data in rich user experiences for the likes of traders or users who need to see more.
K-Block is Tech Fleet’s answer to providing robust data needs in the Kadena community to pave the way for Kadena’s mainstream adoption. (Source ↗)
Led a team of 6 UX designers to revamp K-Block with the goal to launch beta in a 12 week sprint.
→ Redefining Scope
I redefined the product with my team by identifying key features to prioritize for the beta launch, aligning with traders' needs and the business vision.
→ Revamping the Visual Design
User testing on the previous version of K-Block suggested that users found it untrustworthy. To address this, we identified numerous areas for improvement and decided to revamp the entire design system. Additionally, I redesigned the brand identity to align with the new aesthetics.
→ Facilitating Collaboration
I facilitated cross-functional collaborations with the research, writing, and development teams. I planned my team's timeline around the needs and goals of other teams to optimize our collective outcome. I spearheaded joint development and design meetings to efficiently address blockers for both teams. Internally, I conducted weekly design critique sessions to foster collaboration and promote critical thinking in design decisions.
→ Product Management
I spearheaded a backend development focused phase and served as the product manager for a team of developers.
