With decentralised exchanges now all the rage we have to learn the lessons of centralised exchanges

1) user experience has to be better
2) performance has to be better
3) don't fight the law

Expanded below...
1) User experience is just awful on most centralised exchanges. There's no excuse for bad human centric design in 2018.

Who is the customer? What does crypto mean in their life? What job are they trying to get done?

Learn from the best in #fintech
2) Performance

I'm not sure how a Dapp can perform better than a centralised system but the big exchanges are SO bad it's not a high bar to leap over...

@0xProject gives me hope, but the proof is in the testing

Web scale performance remains illusive in decentraland
3) The law

It can't be the case that the long term value of crypto is tax avoidance / pump and dump. Otherwise we all lose.

Strong decentralised exchanges that find innovative solutions to consumer and Investor protection before regulators coming knocking win long term

Am loving @peepethApp code of conduct, all of the interactions with it are likeable. 🙌

It's really cool that this real world service will run with any front end, anyone can fork it, and its truly resilient. This is how to explain what decentralisation is...
My only complaint is the obvious slowness of confirmations to @IPFSbot and @ethereum (must be some way to mask that for the user) and the lack of instant follows / gratification

@ricburton - I imagine @Balance_io folks could think of ways to make that possible?
The user experience is still a little bare bones, but it has a likeability that's hard to put my finger on. It's been built with ❤️
