UX Tips for Building with Dai
Earlier this month, we published our Dai In Numbers Momentum Report, an exploration into the metrics of Dai usage based on data observed on the Ethereum blockchain. The report details how the Dai economy has grown in activity and diversity.

By learning why people use Dai, including their motivations and goals, we can respond to any hurdles by crafting user experiences that solve problems, produce desired results, and inspire trust. Moreover, by choosing to publish our findings in a guide we call The Desire for Dai, UX teams at organizations choosing to integrate Dai can do the same.

Many people discover Dai because of problems centralized currency cannot fix, af...
