What is peer to peer network?

In an ideal digital world, the goal would be a seamless transfer of digital files and data records across online devices, each of which is directly synced and connected. The result would be a fast-moving global community leveraging innovative features as well as increased collaboration and secure data sharing.

A peer-to-peer network is a decentralized network protocol that enables a direct communication path between the computers within its system which are referred to as peers, eliminating the need for middlemen. The peer-to-peer architecture allows for an ecosystem where every participating node or peer has equal tasks and carries out similar responsibilities.

By partitioning equal tasks and functions among peer nodes, the system can allow all the participants to contribute and collaborate, making it an excellent environment for intuitive ideas for residential areas and small-scale businesses because each device can act as an entire workstation having access to the whole data reserve of the network.

The decentralized feature of peer-to-peer network protocols is yet the most malleable trait which means that there is the absence of a central entity as well as third parties. It has formed the underlying context on which innovative ideas are built to enhance most aspects of daily living.

The banking and investment sector has undergone a significant transformation, introducing a new era in digitized finance. From P2P lending and P2P crypto trading to payment and asset management, the world of commerce is changing. Africa is changing with it.

The African continent already faces a handful of limiting factors to its progression toward the crypto ecosystem and its desire to immerse in the opportunities the ecosystem could offer. Some of these limiting factors include regulatory and educational barriers. While Africa is committed to financial inclusion and wealth generation in the crypto industry, some concerns need to be addressed by the providers of crypto-related services. One of which is User Experience (UX) Considerations in P2P service platforms.

The most restricting area of concern may be implementing an interactive simple comprehensible interface of the crypto platform, especially on cryptocurrency exchange platforms. While the P2P networks are designed for an easy transaction process, the interface of the exchange is just as important.

What is a crypto exchange? A cryptocurrency exchange is a decentralized marketplace where cryptocurrencies and other digital assets can be bought and sold directly. It facilitates crypto transactions instantly without the help of an intermediary. These exchanges allow users to interact directly with each other while maintaining anonymity and having control over their data.

According to the online Oxford Dictionary, User Experience is ‘the overall experience of a person using a product such as a website or a computer application, especially in terms of how easy or pleasing it is to use’. User experience (UX) is vital in the design and usability of any network or system, including peer-to-peer (P2P) networks. While ensuring security, transacting with a P2P exchange aims to make buying and selling crypto assets easy without the intricacies of traditional banking, thus reducing complexity. Hence the need to pay mind to the user interface and experience when building an exchange, which is a challenging and complex process but provides opportunities for innovation regardless. By incorporating simplicity into the Exchange interface, which is not merely visually appealing but also easy to navigate, the network maximizes its potential to offer services to customers which is not limited to providing solutions but also delivering these solutions through an enjoyable process. While focusing on improving the functionality and effectiveness of the network, here are a few key points vTrader considers to optimize and improve the user experience and engagement;

Network discovery: Finding and connecting with peers is crucial in P2P networks. By iterating an easy intuitive interface with simple helpful guidance, users can easily run a peer discovery search and connect with others. it may also involve providing a clear set of instructions to seek and find files or resources within the network. This could be through an automated process or search functionality.

Easy setup model: Connecting on the network for the first time can be challenging for new users especially when they are unsure of what to expect. A good UX implementation makes it easy for users to get started and this can be achieved by providing clear guidance which may include infographics or an introductory video.

Customer support: Having skilled reliable customer support with a good commendable knowledge reserve to provide the users with solutions should be a feature to incorporate on a cryptocurrency exchange. Also, the customer support call to action must be easily identifiable and include multiple communication channels such as telephone, email, social media, etc. Another intuitive approach is to include multiple language support which does not only benefit users but allows the network to broaden its customer base.

Display and design: Analyzing a trading chart or graph can be difficult and a poor interface could lead to the users making wrong decisions based on the misrepresented data. To help users make informed selections, market trends, and data should be properly displayed. The tools needed for technical analysis should be easily recognized and their uses clearly stated.

Responsiveness: By optimizing the user interface for both mobile and desktop devices, users are encouraged to increase their engagement on the platform.

Performance and error handling: Improved interactivity requires technical expertise to achieve the level of functionality which would be needed in transaction processing. These features would include a fast processing time, an easy user authentication process, wallet integration, and advanced trading options.

The need for simplicity in the crypto industry can not be overstretched and it is a key part of an entire P2P project especially when the program is intended for mass inclusion.
