24Cryptex is the trading platform with crypto assets based on binary options. Blockchain team of TopMonks delivered backend and frontend solution, design of the platform and usability tests.
Our team was asked to review the 24Cryptex trading app which had problems with usability, overall look and feel of their platform.
UX Designer: Tomáš Paulus
Project Manager: Lea Petrášová
Developers: Jiří Lafek, Vašek Slavík
First version of crypto binary trading platform was designed in 2016 without research or any user tests. Whole platform has been developed without further assistance of UI/UX designers so we had a lot of space for creativity and research based design.
After initial research, competitive analysis and guerilla testing we re-created whole sitemap, information architecture and on-boarding flow. The next logical step was to create new style-guide and refresh platform for year 2018.

Our team tested 4 colour schemes for light version and 2 schemes for a dark version of the app. The final design can be seen down below. We used a lot of negative space, bigger fonts, brighter colours and we tried to highlight the most important information for users.
We tested the app with users who are regular traders and also with people who just want to try binary trading. After the initial set of subjects, we did a lot of changes to make the platform even more usable.
Our UX Designer created 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 visual changes to the live app.
Tomáš Paulus, UX designer from TopMonks, really knows what he's doing. Based on his research, he adapted the platform into a usable form with a professional design. We certainly recommend him further.
We are always on the lookout for new interesting projects with good people. Need a hand? We have 120 of them. If you would like to discuss further, share feedback or ask any questions, please get in touch with Lea.
