Leveling up DeFi’s User Experience

Today, we’re excited to release Friktion’s redesign: a leap forward in making the DeFi experience delightful, transparent, and productive.

A common criticism of mass DeFi’s adoption goes like this: why should a user install/get a wallet (undertaking the hassle of private key management), understand the yield generating mechanism and risks of each DeFi application and blockchain they are using, and know how and when to manage their positions?

We believe that most of these challenges, while valid today, are a result of DeFi’s infancy when it comes to focussing on application’s User Interface (UI) and User Experience (UX).

Scalability (million → billion users) is at the core of Friktion’s long-term DeFi thesis and this requires innovation in the user onboarding journey — beyond what we’ve seen the last few years as DeFi.

A goal of our ever-evolving design philosophy is to DEMOLISH the barrier to entry for anyone into DeFi — making every page, click, deposit, and word read simple and powerful.
