🎲 Current UX Issues of the Blockchain Technology

The issue for blockchain adoption is in the user experience. Real blockchain adoption will come when user experience are being prioritize but the blockchain's jargon are being hid from the end-user.

As potential users, we want to be sure that we would be covered in case of flight delay, and we don’t care about transactions, smart contracts, etc. We don’t care about the underlying technology, and we don’t want to adopt a new way of using it. Technology should follow existing user behaviors and habits instead of reimagining user experience to make it successful. Same applies to the communication, blockchain-powered services should talk user needs and potential values, not cool features or technologies.

Unreadable addresses
in a blockchain world, we face horrible and meaningless addresses, and we can not rename them, example: 1EQoU9muLBu4MF9gon3o9Tm8nQwwK6DVmu. Some people could say that it does not matter, you can copy and paste this lengthy string, this is done for privacy and security, etc. Still, it is all about ease of use — domain names are way more readable than IP addresses, you can easily remember godaddy.com instead of 104.238.65.160.

Take Away
Blockchain technology developers should consider more of the user experience instead of solely focusing on the underlying blockchain technology if we plan to drive mass public adoption and benefit from the technology.
