Event description

Blockchain has attracted a lot of media attention in recent years, most commonly in the form of cryptocurrency. As applications of the decentralised ledger technology increase, this provides a wealth of opportunity to anyone looking for a career in this space. 

So what opportunities exist for human-centred designers, product managers and anyone looking to expand their skillset and expertise?

Come to our two-part workshop and discover where a career in Blockchain Design could lead you. 

In this first workshop, we’ll explore:

  • The background and history of blockchain technology
  • Design considerations when creating a blockchain solution
  • An introduction to decentralised design frameworks
  • UX analysis of decentralised products, services, and network

 

To get the most out of our sessions, we recommend some self-learning between the two workshops. It’s a a great opportunity for you to apply your learning by working on a mini project. This self-learning task consists of:

  • Reading up more about blockchain, cryptocurrencies, and decentralised apps (DApps)
  • Create a value proposition design for a decentralised business model
  • Create a user journey within a decentralised network, product, or service blueprint (or enhance an existing blueprint / ‘as is’ blueprint)
  • Create a mockup or wireframe of a decentralised experience (or enhance an existing experience)
