(Ideation) Compound Pocket Companion: Your DeFi World in Hand

Compound Pocket Companion: Your DeFi World in Hand (Ideation)

Project Purpose

Our goal is to create a user-friendly mobile app for Compound users. This app will let users easily handle and monitor their investments using their mobile devices.

Project Description

We’re planning to create a mobile app designed to help Compound users effectively interact with Compound services even on their mobiles!

Here’s how it do that:

  1. Alerts on Liquidation Risk: The app will warn users if their investments are in danger. Users can fix this problem in one click.

  2. Tracking Multiple Accounts: Users can keep an eye on several accounts at once and get warnings about any problems.

  3. Quick Look at Portfolio: Users can see all their investments in one place quickly.

  4. Easy Market Activities: Users can lend, borrow, and stake directly from their phone.

  5. Connection with Compound: The app lets Compound keep in touch with its users. Compound can quickly notify its users about any big news.

Our goal here is to build an easy to use mobile app that really help an average Compound user and that even an non-techie user can use

What Problems it Solves and Why it’s Important

Some people argue that DeFi apps like Compound don’t need a mobile app because their websites are already mobile-friendly, and not many people use DeFi apps on mobile.

However, this idea overlooks a few key points.

First, there are hardly any mobile apps for DeFi. Even major players like Compound don’t have one yet.

So, it’s no surprise that mobile usage is low - there aren’t many options to use.

Meanwhile, Binance has over 50 million downloads on Android alone! This shows that there’s a demand for mobile apps in the crypto space.

So, here’s how our app will make a difference:

  1. Liquidation Risk Alerts: Crypto markets are unpredictable and can change quickly. Users can’t always be on their desktops to monitor their positions. But everyone always has their phone with them. Our app will alert users about any liquidation risks and give them a chance to prevent it with just a click.

  2. Multiple Account Tracking: We know that users often don’t have their main account on their phone. That’s why our app lets users keep an eye on several accounts at once. It will alert them about risks on any of their accounts. Now users can secure their portfolios anytime, anywhere!

  3. Quick Portfolio Views: Our app gives users a fast and simple way to look at their entire portfolio.

  4. Manage Portfolio on the Go: Users can easily manage their portfolio and do market operations like lend and borrow directly using their phone.

  5. Connecting Community and Project: Having a connection between a community and a project is crucial. Our app lets Compound connect with its users and help Compound instantly notify them about any major announcements.

Benefits for Compound :

  1. More Usage: By having a dedicated mobile application, Compound can expect to see a surge in usage. The convenience and accessibility of a mobile app lead to more frequent interactions. Users will have the ability to monitor their investments, lend and borrow directly from their mobile device at any time and place. This increased accessibility and ease-of-use often results in a more engaged user base.

  2. Better User Experience: A well-designed mobile application can significantly enhance the user experience. Unlike the conventional web-based platforms, the app will be designed keeping in mind the preferences of mobile users, which could mean easier navigation, more intuitive controls, and generally a more user-friendly interface. The ability to receive push notifications about liquidation risks or new opportunities directly to their mobile devices can also greatly enhance user experience.

  3. First Choice of Mobile Users: With the increasing number of mobile users in the DeFi space, having a dedicated app could position Compound as the first choice for those who prefer using their mobile devices for managing their DeFi investments. Given the right marketing and user experience, the Compound mobile app can become a preferred choice for mobile users in the DeFi space.

  4. New Untapped Opportunity: As it stands, the mobile DeFi application market is relatively untapped. By developing a dedicated mobile application, Compound will be capitalizing on a new, largely untapped market segment. This opens the door to attracting a whole new demographic of users who might prefer a mobile-first approach to DeFi investments. With the continuous growth of smartphone usage globally, the Compound app has the potential to substantially increase Compound’s overall user base and total value locked (TVL).

Any technical or other risk?

While we’re confident in our ability to deliver the proposed mobile application, we understand that any project of this nature could encounter unexpected challenges. We’ve outlined potential risks and our mitigation strategies below:

  1. Technical Challenges: While developing a mobile app for a complex DeFi platform like Compound, we might encounter technical issues related to integration, security, or performance. Our experienced team is equipped to handle these challenges, and we’ll also set up regular code reviews and testing to catch issues early.

  2. Security Risk: Given the financial nature of the app even it is only frontend, proper security is needed. We plan to conduct regular internal security audits and integrate best security practices to mitigate this risk. Moreover, we’ll ensure all data handling complies with applicable data protection and privacy regulations.

  3. Regulatory Risk: The regulatory environment for DeFi is rapidly evolving, and future changes could impact our project. We’ll keep a close eye on these developments and adjust our plans as necessary to maintain compliance.

  4. Project Timeline Risk: Unforeseen circumstances could potentially delay the project. To mitigate this risk, we’ll employ agile project management methodologies, allowing us to adapt and re-prioritize tasks as needed.

To ensure transparency and build trust, we won’t request any upfront payment and will only be paid any money after the first milestones. This underscores our commitment to delivering a high-quality, effective product for Compound and its users.


Maintenance is an essential part of the lifecycle of any application, especially when it involves financial services like Compound. Ensuring the app is always up to date, secure, and free from bugs is key to providing a seamless user experience and instilling trust in the user base.

As markets and technology evolve, the application will need to adapt to new requirements and changes. Maintenance also ensuring compatibility with new devices and operating systems versions.

As part of our commitment to the success of this project, we are offering a 6 months free maintenance after the app’s launch.

This includes regular updates, bug fixes, security patches, and user support.

After the first year, if requested we can provide ongoing maintenance services at a rate of $1,500 per month.

This cost ensures that the Compound app continues to deliver a top-tier experience for its users, with the latest features and a high level of security, usability, and stability.

App Launch

The major concern for the app is that it may not be accepted by the Apple App Store, and all the work may be wasted.

There are already a few DeFi apps available on the App Store -

  1. Uniswap
  2. 1inch

All of them are DeFi apps, similar to Compound, and have been accepted by the App Store.

So, I don’t think there will be many issues when launching in the App Store.

However, it might require a significant amount of time and discussion with the App Store Team.

To ensure we devote the necessary attention to this and to show the community that it is our first priority we have a allocated a large chunk of the Project to the Milestone of the App Store Launch

With that in mind, we’ve already started contacting the Uniswap and other DeFi mobile teams to understand their experiences and learn how they launched their apps on the Apple App Store.

We are confident that we will be able to launch ours on the App Store.

But if, for any reason, the launch is delayed or even canceled, we will persist in reaching out to them, discuss the issues, and modify our app to meet their requirements until they approve it.

Cost & Milestones

To make this proposal as riskless as possible we will only ask for any payment after the first milestones is completed, so no upfront payment!

Budget Breakdown

  1. Senior Blockchain Developer ($300 per day): A senior developer is essential to handle the intricate blockchain elements of the app. They will be primarily responsible for the base app and dashboard functionality, implementing the market operations, developing the market position monitoring, integrating this service into the app, and any remaining functions. Given the high level of expertise required, their daily rate is the highest.

  2. Designer ($200 per day): The designer’s role will be fundamental in the initial phase, to create the wireframes and designs for the app. A well-designed, user-friendly interface is critical to the success of any app

  3. Blockchain and App Developers ($250 per day each): These developers will work alongside the senior developer and are instrumental in translating the designs into functional app elements and integrating the blockchain functionality.

This is an ideation proposal to check how the community reacts - there might be some changes to this proposal as per the suggestions and how the community reacts


I love to see developers directly approaching the community with their idea, details to get it to fruition, and why it benefits everyone. Best of luck to you!

Can we see more details on your past projects that you have made?

I am happy to help out with any technical questions you might have in your endeavor.

Hello @adam

Thank you for reading our proposal and for your encouraging words.

Regarding our past experience in app development, we’re presently working on a web3 desktop and mobile Institutional Application for Verge Chain. This application is specifically designed to facilitate institutional users in sending and receiving ISO 20022 compliant messages using the Verge Chain.

In the past, we’ve also collaborated with Unstoppable Domains on their integration into the Status Mobile app. This project entailed enhancing the functionality of the Status Mobile app by integrating services provided by Unstoppable Domains, which specializes in decentralized blockchain domain names.

Moreover, our team has amassed substantial experience in developing mobile applications in the web2 space.

Although we haven’t fully developed a DeFi mobile app in the web3 space, this is primarily because most projects currently do not perceive a strong need for such apps. Nevertheless, our past experiences have equipped us with a solid foundation and understanding necessary to successfully execute this project.

We’re eager to bring our expertise to the development of the Compound Mobile App and make a positive contribution to the DeFi space
