Bitcoin design guide 🗺️

  • Sprint #4 is wrapped up and includes a new page about what to consider when creating a new wallet, lots of content tweaks, plus a technical and visual polish of the website.

  • Sprint #5 is kicking off, and we’ll be adding several pages to the onboarding section, creating content for transaction privacy, and adding more visuals throughout the site.

  • The “Sending bitcoin” page got a visual overhaul (PR 296 and 284). The Usage Life Cycle, Personal Finance, User Research, and Tech Primer pages also had a few tweaks.

  • Daniel has just published a new page for bitcoin backups.

  • As the guide is growing, reviewing content is becoming more important. That means we need your personal feedback. What’s helpful to you? What could be better? Please tell us in the #bitcoin-design-guide channel in Slack or propose improvements directly on Github via issues and pull requests.
