    I'm not sure you are going to see much interest from the broader design community until cryptocurrencies do something other than get traded in an attempt to get money.

    Sure Ether is meant to run dapps, but does anyone here actually use a dapp on a regular basis for anything? If you aren't in the cryptocurrency world can you even name one?

      CB Insights just released a report on Coinbase's success. One of the reasons is the user experience of their products. While their app became #1 on the app-store, none of its competitors got even close to that. This is the reason why everyone else will have to focus on UX in order to bring the platforms closer to the masses.

        To clarify, as a designer I don't care about cryptocurrencies except in terms of abstract idealism or fears about the future in terms of what could happen to money, but as a designer I find the technology of the blockchain fascinating in its potential.

        The exciting future is decentralized and secure systems for voting and other social systems that currently rely on poorly managed central systems.
