CoinDesk is a highly respected crypto news and media company with significant influence. It offers insights, events, indices, and data services to a vast community of cryptocurrency enthusiasts.
CoinDesk required a new and more efficient website to replace the outdated one, which was neither scalable nor user-friendly. Upon joining CoinDesk, my primary goal was to revamp and redesign the entire website. Among the various projects I had to tackle, one of the most critical tasks on my plate was the redesign of the price pages.
The price pages are one of the most viewed sections across the CoinDesk website and products, with many users entering the site through these pages.
The current design of the price page is outdated and lack of a user-friendly experience. This is evident in confusing section names, poor navigation, and insufficient data for each asset. These issues are likely to discourage both existing users and potential users, potentially hindering the future growth of the crypto market.
