Decentralized applications are key to mainstream adoption for blockchain. However, private key management, wallet requirements, high latency, frequent micro payment of gas fees, etc. all combine to make today's DApps very difficult to use, thereby creating significant barriers to entry. To fully resolve what may appear, from the surface, to be UI/UX issues, we need to redesign the entire stack of blockchain services — from wallet to JavaScript UX to different gas mechanisms. In his talk, Dr. Yuan will provide retrospectives on several DApps that he and his team developed and marketed in the Ethereum ecosystem, as well as address:* DApp-specific optimizations for wallets such as web3 integration, payment prompt, DApp launch mechanisms, and DApp portals* Seamless and streamlined gas payments * How to handle pure view smart contract functions * Centralized vs. decentralized private key management * UX improvements for transaction waiting time * Third-party gas payments ("net neutrality") Dr. Yuan also will impart new approaches to design useable DApps and, as a community, propose dan discuss new EIPs that can improve DApp usabilities.
