PoolTogether has been building an incredible product. We continue to branch out to the entire Defi ecosystem. Everything that has been deployed has been running very smoothly. The backend foundation of the protocol is in very good shape. I appreciate the safe and detailed approach that the team here takes. Security is of utmost importance in this space. An exploit can scar the name brand. We do not want to be complacent, and we want to continually improve.
We could gain more users with a more robust front-end experience. New integrations need to be more easily accessible to novice users. I feel this is currently an undervalued aspect of Defi. I am speaking from personal experience with the industry. I spent a lot of time on my own learning how to use a Metamask and interacting with protocols. The average person does not have a similiar appetite for learning the complexities of interacting with a Defi protocol. When I speak to people in my life about the steps involved in getting into Defi, most are intimidated. This project has an opportunity to blaze trails in user experience. If we are the best place to onboard new Defil users then we should have a UX to match that mantra.
In the future I would like to see a front-end upgrade be part of releases like pools on Matic. Currently. you must be in the know about new places to deposit into PoolTogether. In order to participate, you need to find the exact URL. The links to these sites are easily accesible to the community, but not quite as accessible to casual users. I would like to see new features integrated into the main PoolTogether page. I am not a programmer, but I know people. The average user is currently less likely to take the neccessary steps to participate in new PoolTogether integrations.
If everything was easily accessible on a homepage we would accrue more value to the protocol. I am asking the community to consider this opportunity. I would like to see some bounties,sponsored hackathons, or grants issued for building the front end. If we can streamline the process to interact with Defi, we can provide an incredible service to the entire crypto community.
We can build a framework for other projects to emulate.
