Amasa Product Development Update — 12 April 2022

From Will Birks, Founder and Core Contributor, Amasa

I’m pleased to update you today on the great progress the Amasa product team has been making since our last product development update on 8 March.

If you haven’t already, please also check out our recent project update covering product roadmap, ecosystem growth, marketing, community and governance.

As usual, we welcome any feedback or questions from you in the Amasa Telegram Community group. You can also keep an eye on our Telegram Announcements channel and Amasa on Twitter for news of AMAs and other opportunities for community feedback.

Recent Amasa platform development progress

Design

Our designers have made great headway on the many visual assets, parts and views required in the Amasa platform, from product detail pages to user settings, various modals, icons and graphics for user interactions etc.

We’re holding off on sharing elements of the Amasa platform design that feature the new branding work we’ve been doing in parallel, as this isn’t yet finalised. But we can share some draft elements, like this account summary view:

We started designing the desktop version of the platform first, and most of this is now completed. The team is now adapting these designs for mobile devices, and we’re taking the time to get this right. We believe that great user experience design is a crucial requirement for the mass adoption of Web3 and DeFi applications. We want to make sure we provide our users with the best experience possible, and that we’re helping push the space forward in this regard.

User interface development

Since our last update, The Amasa dev team has created the staging site and started building that out. The site now features:

  • A working Metamask connection
  • Working wallet network detection
  • Setting of auto-allocations to different DeFi investment options, with nice working sliders.

Here are some screenshots directly from the staging site:

Dashboard pre-Metamask connection (design and text are draft)

Setting auto-allocations (design and text are draft)

I’m really enjoying the user interface for setting auto-allocations to different DeFi investment options (pictured immediately above). The interactive sliders are well-designed and very nicely built into the staging site. The interaction with these sliders and how the allocation is dynamically totaled at the bottom is sleek and intuitive.

Having developed Amasa from the initial concept to the mature project it is now, it’s personally really satisfying to step through the onboarding process and see how seamlessly it guides the user through wallet connection, wallet funding and setting auto-allocations. We are developing the seamless user experience we envisioned and it’s truly something that we’ll be proud to bring to market.

Back-end development

Alongside this progress on the user interface, our back-end devs have been advancing on smart contracts and functional integrations. Since our last product development update, the team has completed the smart contract underpinning the Amasa platform’s staking investment option.

We are now continuing the investigation of candidate DeFi protocols to underpin further options in the Amasa platform ‘Amplify’ investment basket. We are honing in on one particular protocol for the MVP and are in final assessment of this.

Moving on to Web3 income-providers, the Amasa MVP will integrate with a small selection of income-providing Web3 applications for alpha testing. This selection will feature complementary projects from different Web3 spaces, and delivery of the MVP will be Amasa’s proof of concept and vision. We’re currently in advanced stages of discussion (or in some cases execution) with these projects.

What’s next for product development

In coming weeks, the Amasa team will will rework the designs to make the site responsive for mobile devices, and any outstanding platform elements that are waiting on the rebranding work.

We will continue building out the user interface and merging that into the staging site. This will include the dashboard account summary and various other user views, for example, views for the Stabilise and Amplify investment options, user value withdrawal etc.

Our blockchain developers will continue work on the liquidity and amplify smart contracts. These are complex pieces of work that are progressing well but will take some time.

The team will also be working on finalising selection of the DeFi protocols underpinning the Amasa platform Amplify investment options, as well as the Web3 income-providing projects we’re planning on integrating with for the MVP.

I look forward to sharing more details on all of this in upcoming product development updates.
