Couple days ago, I had the idea to make BitPoll
, so I hacked up a prototype (http://bitpoll.dyndns.org
), here's a screenshot:
BitPoll combines donations with voting.
The idea is that anyone can cast a poll by making a list of poll items that can be voted for by transferring Bitcoins to the given address. Usually the poll creator will generate fresh addresses for each of the items.
BitPoll uses blockexplorer to determine the amount of Bitcoins that have been transferred to each poll item's address. The poll items each have a desired amount, when the total balance of an item reaches 100% of this amount, that item is considered to be fullfilled and the address is not shown any more.
Currenlty polls stay open indefinitely. I plan to implement different modes to define when a poll is considered to be finished (winner takes it all, close idividual items, ...)
Tell me what you think, or even donate on the site if you like the idea ;)
EDIT: changed urls from https to http
