I think we could make improvements to the UX in a few ways. I’ve read that the plan is to overhaul the UX after the launch of synths, however I think it would advantageous to refine the UX first to minimise pain-points for the users.
Here are my observations:
Navigating between the different Bao chains can be a little cumbersome, and I wonder if it’s possible to navigate through the chains via the bao.finance address? I noticed that Stake Dao have made this possible with their website since launching on Polygon and BSC. I’m unable to upload the screengrab example that I made, so I’ll just provide the link here for you to see for yourself: https://stakedao.org/ - just click on app and you’ll see the chain switching button top-left.
xdai.bao.finance/farms and xdai.farm/#/swap are not linked - should they be? A nice green button up on the top right hand corner like the “Farms” button on Pandaswap works nicely for navigation shortcut. If the latter is a community built tool, I think it should be made standard and built into all of the Bao ecosystem interfaces as the design has excellent functionality.
Buttons that open new windows is kind of annoying. A few times I have ended up with 4+ tabs after exploring the interface, and this feels very cluttered. I can easily open a new tab myself by holding command if I need to. For this reason I think any navigation within the Bao ecosystem so stay within the same tab, where’s anything external like a button to “Buy Bao” that leads to FTX opens a new window.
Make ETH, XDAI, BSC and all chains switchable via the main bao.finance address - one stop shop.
Make xdai.farm/#/swap the standard Swap/Pool/Farm interface for all chains
Change Bao internal navigation buttons to not open new tabs. Only external links open a new tabs.
Keen to hear other opinions on these points.
