how does desining for blockchain differ from other forms of design?
From the event description:
"designing the architecture of the blockchain system (technical) and designing the security system needed for blockchain platforms."
is what would separate this from traditional design I imagine..
I work at internal studio for a big multinational it company. I’ve worked on 4 blockchain projects in past 18 months. The studio where I work is currently working on the biggest blockchain project in the world.
I’m no expert but I think I speak from experience when I say there is nothing like “design for blockchain” because it doesn’t exist!
Maybe it might exist in the architecture/security side but I don’t know because I’m not a developer. But when it comes to UI/UX design, I’m sure as hell that no such thibg exist in practice.
Unfortunately, I'm not organizing the event so I'm not 100% sure—I mainly posted because I think the blockchain space is a great opportunity and I think getting designers together that are interested is always a good thing.
When it comes to the topic of what is "Design for Blockchain", I think a lot of it is going to be on the technical side—what's needed to build a blockchain project, what systems are required, etc. When it comes to UI/UX, I'm willing to bet it's going to lean on the side of user experience and more closely the general population's skepticism of blockchain/cryptocurrency and how you accommodate that.
Hope that answers your question, but the only definite way to find out is to come! :)
