Problem, insights, and solution

Understanding the problem, evaluating potential solutions, and familiarising myself with the customer's perspective.

As the cryptocurrency market continues to grow, investors and traders need tools to manage their portfolios, track their performance, and stay updated on market news.
Research shows that understanding cryptocurrencies can be overwhelming for beginners, given complex terms and data. Real-time, accurate data is crucial due to market volatility, and with the potential for significant financial data, security is paramount. Additionally, as every investor's portfolio is unique, there’s a need for customisation.
The Cryptocurrency Portfolio app is designed to cater to both novice investors and experienced traders, providing a comprehensive solution for tracking and managing cryptocurrency investments with an emphasis on user-friendliness, security, and real-time data.

Starting with both quantitative and qualitative research methods

I began the project by conducting user research to understand the needs and pain points of cryptocurrency investors, and market analysis to evaluate competitors and identify the market gap.

  • User research

    I gathered insights through surveys and interviews with both experienced and novice investors to understand what users look for in a tracking tool.

  • Market analysis

    Competitive analysis of existing apps revealed strengths and weaknesses. I found that existing cryptocurrency portfolio trackers lacked a comprehensive yet user-friendly approach.
