Decentralized finance is the new frontier of digital assets, but challenges with the user experience has prevented the field from accelerating and reaching greater adoption. The new Fuse Studio web app helps to solve this and help you to discover the decentralization of finance (DeFi) by creating tokens on Ethereum, and providing a complete end-user friendly solution that bridges Ethereum to Fuse, and an end-user wallet on Fuse. We will look at the use case of GoodDollar.org, a digital basic income protocol based on Compound’s contracts, and I will show you how to create web interfaces for these smart contracts that make it easier to access and interact with.
