Hey everyone, i’ve read a bit about the UX issues the slatepack transactions have, and I also think they are not very userfriendly. I don’t know about how to technologically improve this stuff, but maybe i can help to make the user feel more secure and comfortable when doing this kind of tx.
From my perspective the main problems are as follows:
The slatepack transactions are explained in technological terms. It’s very abstract.
Calling this process exchange of addresses might help here. So that the user understands that slatepacks are one-time wallet addresses which need to be exchanged to confim a transaction. That would be easier to understand imo.
The slatepack addresses look scary and take up lots of space.
I guess you don’t really need to see them in the tx process. Or at least only show them to ppl who really want to know. You’ll see the address when copy/pasting anyways.
I don’t get any feedback.
This is really important. The user want’s to know that everything has worked.
Here is a simple visualization of what the process might look and feel like. The structure and the ui design is not perfect, but i hope you get the basic idea.
It’s still 4 clicks, but i think that by making the user understand the workings of it in a simple fashion, and by giving feedback during this whole process, the user will be more comfortable doing slatepack transactions.
