Able: a modular crypto dashboard (3 of 3)

1 year ago, for day 90 by Kent de Bruin

“How can we enable new investors to do the same?” New proposition: With our new research, we formulated a new goal: New crypto users enter the market with no proper understanding of investing. Professional investors raise the probability of good returns by following specific steps. How can we create an...


Able: a modular crypto dashboard (2 of 3)

1 year ago, for day 89 by Kent de Bruin

*Prototype: Based on the research we went into prototype mode. We quickly came up with the idea to build a modular crypto dashboard. We thought that the crypto space needed a place where transparency was key. This includes teaching people about operational security, providing them with credible news sources, dedicated...


Able: a modular crypto dashboard (1 of 3)

1 year ago, for day 88 by Kent de Bruin

Last year I worked on a crypto startup called Able. I am now writing a case study for my design portfolio. Challenge: Crypto was hot at the end of 2017. Millions of people were investing in cryptocurrencies. Yet most new users lacked the technical and financial knowledge to make rational...


Designing my life (9 of n)

Designing my life (5 of n)

Just defining your areas is not enough. Areas are too generic and rarely change. They are the fixed foundation. On top of this, we need some building blocks in the form of projects. All my projects are part of an area. Projects are the fuel of my progress. At all...
