Wavvy Wallet MVP 2.0

February 2024


The Essence of Credulity in UX Research

Credulity, or the readiness to believe, underscores the critical need for empirical observation and prototype testing in UX research. Inspired by "How to Think Like a UX Researcher", we emphasize two methodologies for garnering insights:

  1. Observation of Current Solutions: Engaging directly or indirectly with users to understand their interactions with existing solutions, revealing user behaviors, pain points, and adaptations.
  2. Future Simulation through Prototyping: Utilizing prototypes to predict and refine how users interact with future product versions, facilitating usability feedback and feature enhancements.

Market Insight

Kenya's mobile money ecosystem, dominated by Safaricom's M-Pesa with a 95% market share among 77 million accounts, reflects a ripe environment for innovation. This backdrop supports Wavvy Wallet's entry and potential growth in enhancing mobile money management.
