Project Description

With the rise of cryptocurrencies and decentralized applications, there is still a large barrier of entry for people who want to participate in this still new space. More concretely, in Ethereum, there are many decentralized applications that could benefit from a guided onboarding process through messaging bots from the likes of WhatsApp or Telegram. This project aims at doing just that!

Pre-requisites

Experience with a programming language such as Python or JavaScript A passion for user-centric design.
