24Cryptex is a trading platform with crypto assets based on binary options. TopMonks Blockchain team delivered backend and frontend solutions, the design of their platform as well as usability tests.
Our team’s task was to review 24Cryptex’s trading app which experienced some difficulties with its usability and the overall look and feel of their platform.
UX Designer: Tomáš Paulus
Project Manager: Lea Petrášová
Developers: Jiří Lafek, Vašek Slavík
The first version of the crypto binary trading platform was designed in 2016 without any prior research or user tests. The whole platform was developed without further assistance of any UI/UX designers, which offered plenty of space for our creativity and research-based design.
After the initial research which included a competitive analysis and guerilla testing, we recreated the whole sitemap, information architecture and an onboarding flow. The next logical step was to create a new style-guide and refresh the platform for 2018.

Our team tested various color schemes for the light version and 2 schemes for the dark version of the app. Check out the final design below. We used a lot of negative space, bigger fonts, brighter colors and finally, we highlighted the most vital information for users.
We brought the app to life first by having it tested by users who were regular traders and also people who were simply interested in binary trading. After the initial phase of testing, we were lucky to find some opportunities for making the platform even more user-friendly.
Our UX team created the clickable prototypes in Figma. These prototypes were used by developers to understand the interactivity of the trading platform. We also used these prototypes for user testing before implementing the visual changes to the live app.
