Problems identified within the current ecosystem

Can Be Unnecessarily Complicated for Regular Users and New-commers

In the ever-evolving landscape of Web3 and its associated technologies, there exists a significant gap in understanding among the general populace. Making it a challenge to put the content in such a manner that even the newcomers would understand the context, which would lead to increased and easy onboarding of new users.

Scattered Information in the Arbitrum Ecosystem

One of the fundamental challenges in the Arbitrum ecosystem is the decentralized and uncurated nature of available resources. Vital information is dispersed across various platforms, including developer guides, project documentation, and community contributions.

Absence of a Go-to Platform

The current issue within the Arbitrum ecosystem is the absence of a go-to platform that consolidates all necessary information in one accessible location, making it easier for everyone to navigate the ecosystem. While there are existing platforms, they tend to present information in text-heavy formats, making it challenging for users to navigate and digest the content efficiently.

Lack of Comprehensive Guidance

Users might have trouble finding all the information they need in one place. For example, they might find technical details but not know how to get involved in the community or understand how projects are managed.

Fragmented Community Engagement

Because information is scattered, community members might feel disconnected from each other. A central place to find information would help them feel more connected and make it easier for them to work together

“The biggest problem with the Arbitrum DAO ecosystem is how hard it is for users to navigate. Information is all over the place, getting started is complicated, and remaining updated about decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs) initiative is a real task.”

Our Approach

We noticed these problems and proposed them to Plurality Labs in Jan 2023 to come up with a plan and solution to make the ArbitrumDAO user experience & understanding amongst users better. We made an effort to fix these issues and make sure people were more involved with the Arbitrum DAO ecosystem.


Research & Analysis: Understanding the User Journey

The first step involved extensive research and analysis to gain a deep understanding of the current user experience within the Arbitrum ecosystem. We employed a multi-pronged approach:

Information Flow Mapping

Mapping the existing flow of information within the ecosystem helped pinpoint areas where users faced difficulty accessing or comprehending crucial data.

Brainstorming Sessions

Our team members with diverse backgrounds in design, research and development came together to brainstorm and identify key pain points. This collaborative effort ensured that the proposed solutions truly addressed user needs.


Addressing the identified gaps

Based on the research findings, our team developed a user flow that addressed the identified gaps in the Arbitrum ecosystem through multiple iterations and feedback. here are the things we considered:

Information Consolidation

A central information hub, or knowledge base, would be established. This hub would aggregate relevant information from disparate sources, making it easily accessible and understandable for users.

Simplified flow to navigate the ecosystem

Streamlining the process to navigate the ecosystem would reduce the learning curve for new users. This could involve implementing interactive tutorials, creating a step-by-step onboarding guide, and offering in-platform support resources.

Increasing DAO Participation

User-friendly interfaces for DAOs would be designed. These interfaces would facilitate seamless idea sharing, proposal creation, and voting participation, fostering a more engaged DAO community.


Building a User-Friendly Interface

Following the development of the user flow, We embarked on the UI design phase. There were few things we considered:

Consistent Design Language

A consistent design language would be implemented across all components of the Arbitrum ecosystem, including developer guides, onboarding materials, and community platforms. This would enhance user familiarity and create a seamless experience.

100% Open-Source & Future-proof Platform

Created an open-source platform with consolidated data accessible to individuals of varying technical expertise levels.

Responsive Design

Recognizing the diverse range of devices used by our users, we ensured that the interface was responsive across various screen sizes and resolutions. This responsive design approach guarantees optimal viewing experiences, regardless of the device being utilized.

Structured Content Presentation

The content was organized and presented in a structured manner, catering to users with varying levels of technical proficiency. We employed clear language and concise explanations, avoiding jargon and technical complexities wherever possible. This approach ensures that users can easily comprehend the content and navigate through the interface without feeling overwhelmed.

User-Friendly Content Updates

Implemented a simple method for users to update information using markdown (.md) files, ensuring easy community engagement with the platform.

Best Practices while Developing

We followed industry best practices in coding, maintaining a structured and organized codebase. Clean and well-commented code not only improves readability and maintainability but also facilitates collaboration among developers. By adhering to coding standards and conventions, we ensured a smooth development process and minimized the risk of errors or inconsistencies.

Challenges & Solutions

The project faced some tough challenges. We had to find smart solutions for these problems:

Bringing Together Different Information: Curating information from various sources proved to be a hurdle. We addressed this problem by rigorous research and use of proper tools and reliable sources to simplify the information that would be understood by both the regular users and the new users

Balancing Tech and User Needs: Striking a balance between the technical intricacies of the Arbitrum ecosystem and user needs for a simple and intuitive experience was crucial. User-centric design principles were rigorously applied to ensure the final solution effectively met user expectations without compromising technical functionality.

Scalability for Future Growth: We knew the platform would get bigger, so we made sure that the solution could handle more users at any point of time. To address this, the team designed the system with future expansion in mind, incorporating modular components that could be easily adapted to accommodate increasing user demands.
