Wallet Feedback

So, we thought, since the vast majority of the quiz interaction was centred around the Beam mobile wallet, that presents a great opportunity to ask for feedback from the community. So, we shared a questionnaire with our members and the responses were amazing!

Over 70% of the responders were using the wallet for the first time, also, 91% of the wallet usage was on mobile. The overall feedback on the user experience and useability was a solid 4.7 star.

Final Words

My gratitude goes to the Beam team for putting this fun time together for the benefit of her members to earn while learning. I also want to appreciate everyone who was in attendance. More contests to come in the near future. Please follow our social media pages to stay updated on coming events.
