About dPoll

dPoll is a polling application on top of Steem. It utilizes an account based voting system and stores poll and voting data on the blockchain. You can find it at dPoll.xyz.

Here is a handy How-to for creating dPolls.

Our team member @emrebeyler was busy implementing a few updates.

  • Multiple Choice dPoll: this was a desired feature by the community. You can find it at the bottom of the editor. It can be enabled if you think it is appropriate for your dPoll.
  • Poll promotion: this is helpful when you create a poll and want to increase exposure to more users than follow you already. If you bid the highest amount, your dPoll will appear on top of the dpoll.xyz homepage.
  • New content filters:
    • New: Lists active polls by creation date.
    • Trending: Lists active polls by voter count.
    • Promoted: Lists active polls by promotion amount.

An additional change introduced with the content filters was the issue that it was not obvious which dPolls were already expired. With the change only active polls are shown - in every filter. If you want to look up older polls you can go to the profile of a dPoller by either clicking on the user name in a recent dPoll or going to https://dpoll.xyz/user/@[username].

If you have any feedback, go to our issues page at Github or drop by at our Discord server.


See it online at dpoll.xyz, and the source code at github repository.
