RE: The Frustrations of On-Boarding

in LeoFinance2 months ago

Onboarding has to be simpler. Ought to be possible to import keys from sign-up straight into Keychain, with prompt to make a safe backup. New users should be directed to some tutorials that cater for different languages. I expect a lot of people give up quickly and we have to avoid that.

I know there have been some efforts on this, but if it's still hard work then more needs doing.

Sort:  

It's going to have to be easier. Users will give it a go and if it's too hard will go away with a mental note, 'too complicated, forget it'. That will stick in their minds forever, even if 2 weeks later it's suddenly much easier due to some new dev work. They won't try again.. it's a one shot thing.

I know there was some talk of 'lite/light' accounts that might be authorised by a Twitter/FB/Google account, but eventually people need to understand keys. Once you set up Keychain it's mostly easy.

There's the technical aspects and then the 'what is acceptable' side. Hivewatchers need to make people welcome rather than scaring them off.

Can this be implemented in Peakd? It would be a start I think.

Yes, I am aware of @hivewatchers, and that's why I stuck my foot in early. She is already verified.
