Secco partnered with Thoughtworks to create the first prototype for experimentation in the finance and commerce industries.
Over a twelve-week period, Thoughtworks worked closely with the Secco team to visualize Aura and create a minimum viable product (MVP) that users could interact with, allowing the team to test several ideas and concept designs.
The most interesting aspect was to create a tangible product and create the first pragmatic feedback cycle with the end users. After validation, the next step was testing the viability of the foundational technology including Mesh Networks, P2P, Blockchain and cryptocurrencies with this venture.
Thoughtworks applied concepts of hypothesis-driven product design to validate assumptions around customer behaviors, lean product discovery and rapid software development methodologies to create an MVP: the product's first inception.
At the end of the twelve-week cycle we had built a strong product based on customer insight, paving the the way forward for Secco.
