Huobi Group is a top blockchain company aiming to speed up the digital economy with groundbreaking advancements in key blockchain technologies.

Huobi Group needed to expand its range of services, adhere to regulations, and build a global ecosystem for the future digital economy.

Development objectives and challenges

The main tasks of Artkai’s team were to research the European market and adapt the mobile app to it with a customer-centric design approach. Our biggest challenge was to create a more intuitive user experience, especially for non-professionals. We had to reduce the learning curve and provide education and guidance throughout the app. Additionally, we needed to develop a marketing website tailored to the European market to promote the app effectively.

Development process

During the research phase, we interviewed traders face-to-face to understand how Europeans make decisions. From this data, we identified key insights for designing the platform with a customer-centric approach. Our team then created a design system for different age groups, testing fonts, sizes, contrasts, and colors. We prioritized text readability, especially for older users on mobile screens. 

Our development team implemented an intuitive interface with users’ control over their assets, quick access to main functions, and secure storage. We developed both day and night modes for continuous monitoring during OTC operations. Additionally, we designed a mobile-friendly marketing website, keeping the interface clear and structured for easy navigation. You can read more about this case study here.
