Talisman (talisman.xyz) is a community-owned wallet and web application that enables users to “traverse the Paraverse” with ease. We believe in a future where everyone has freedom via true agency over their intentions and finances, and we believe that DotSama will bring this to fruition.
For more on Talisman’s mission and approach, please see Agyle’s talk at Polkadot Decoded: Polkadot Decoded 2022: Traverse the Paraverse: How Talisman is bringing multi-chain to the masses

Talisman: The UX Chronicles: How To Deliver A Substrate Experience To The Masses
Today, because of its early stage of development and complex multi-chain architecture, both Polkadot and Kusama are changing rapidly and the user experience (UX) can be confusing for end users. It’s our goal to solve that using design, storytelling, and engineering. We abstract away the complexity of underlying implementation and provide a friendly user experience when using DotSama and a way to discover new applications and services available to end users, while keeping them safe and educated about the actions they are taking.
This proposal is for a business-friendly multisig frontend to lower the difficulty for teams and businesses when running their financial operations on Polkadot. Teams currently face many difficulties when trying to perform these operations, risking mistakes along the way, and leading them to choose convenience over security. We will apply Talisman’s UX and design philosophy to create improvements for standard workflows for Polkadot multisig usage (based on the current multisig pallet), and eventually integrate upgrades when improvements to the multisig pallet itself are available.
We have spoken to a number of stakeholders in the ecosystem and have strong validation for our proposed solution:
- “Creating child bounties in pjs is time consuming and error prone, you have our full support” - Zoe Mechbach, VP, Phala Network
- “We will definitely use it because we need it!” - Shun P, Head of Ops and Finance, Astar
- “We would use it for sure” - Dennis & Alexandra, CTO & Marketing Director, Bitgreen
- “If there was a multisig with better UX that allowed us to craft and verify multisig transactions faster we'd use it” Bruno, Founder, RMRK
- “If you can improve the UX to make it easier for non-technical users to initiate and safely sign transactions, we will switch” - Daniel, Founder, Tapio
