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.

Recent updates to the dApp are:

  • Result filters. It is now possible to screen the cast votes by new parameters:

    • Minimum Reputation
    • Minimum SP
    • Minimum Account Age
    • Minimum Post Count

    Every account can vote, and the default view doesn't exclude any accounts. However, you can filter the results based on parameters you think represent a genuine account.

    This feature is useful if there is a lot on the line. @theycallmedan comes to mind here, where he gave away a one year delegation of 10k SP.

    In the interest of transparency: every poll creator should state the filter he intends to use beforehand.

  • Audit option. This one was also inspired by @theycallmedan. This makes the transaction data easily available to everybody who wants to check the integrity of any dPoll. You can do this by going to the the Audit link of the poll you are interested in.

  • Stake Weighting. You can choos from the filter options if you want an account based view of the results or a stake weighted view. The metric is owned SP. Delegations are ignored. Results are dynamic. Power ups/or -downs will automatically be reflected.

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