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.
Recent updates to the dApp are:
- 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:
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].

What happened on dPoll last week?
@theycallmedan announced a 10k Steem Power delegation for one year for the winner of a dPoll last Sunday.
This sparked a frenzy of voting on dPoll. @Team-CN and @Votovzla took the lead from the start. @SteemitBloggers (aka Power House Creatives) slowly but surely, vote by vote, caught up with them over the week. It was a very close competition with a lot of position changes between the three leaders . The winner was completely open until the very end of the polling window.
@Votovzla took the win in the end with a fantastic last minute sprint.
@trincowski made use of our new multiple choice feature to find 3 artists he could support:
@tibfox wanted to know where you guys are from:
@jeffjagoe wanted to know where Steemians would like to go on holiday... Sorry. Where the next SteemFest should be:
Combined with the results from @tibfox above, is it fair to say that the Europeans really want to visit Asia.
@sathyasankar thought: tourism is nice and all, but how about a real adventure:
71% believe we won't be colonizing Mars within the next 10 years.
@abbak7 hosted his second SBI challenge:
Yes. It is actually that simple. Again, 100% wanted SBI shares. Who knew.
@runicar was revisiting rumors:
This is the second poll this week that got a 100% answer. It is a rumor.
@mcoinz79 is looking forward to the Super Bowl LIII on Sunday:
58% Think the New England Patriots will win again. 42% is a strong showing for the LA Rams as underdogs.
