What Is OpenPoll?
The purpose of the new Open Poll platform is to push polls into a true place of integrity. Polls once ran with integrity but have since fallen short in the form of running with trust. The new platform is a non-partisan platform designed to give polls on the blockchain. The mission of the company is to communicate people’s voices with authentic self-representation.
You can find the whitepaper and token sale in full operation on the company website. OpenPoll.io.
How OpenPoll Works
The company makes polls cheaper to run, with phone and exit polls typically being extremely expensive for all parties involved. Not only that, but polling if often extremely time consuming. But with Open Bull, you can count on much cheaper operations since the middleman is effectively being cut out entirely. Therefore, politicians, researchers and corporations can all benefit from using the platform.
The platform is inclusive, meaning that people who’ve been disenfranchised in the past can instantly translate languages to help connect members from different socioeconomic groups. OpenPoll also give more data to everyone, plus pushes for a fair voice.
The platform is completely unbiased, designed to avoid sectional and responsive biased. An example of selection bias would be having to choose between polling outside of a Target or a Wall-Mart. And a response bias example is when questions are asked by a male rather than a female. The effective fix is to give people completely anonymous polling, eliminating the polling biases altogether.
It’s also a completely encrypted process. Thanks to the blockchain technology used, all data is run through a decentralized network built on blockchain. They also provide users the ability to release data publicly at any time, and then keep it verifiable as well.
You can target and analyze all the way down to the Zip Code of a voter. They also support polls at all levels of scale. Basically, it ill work for local cities all the way up to nationwide voting. And with Open Poll it is fairly inexpensive to scale. Also, with the decentralized network that is used – organizations are completely verifiable. They show source of polls, so you can easily use the system in countries still in development who don’t already have a successful government freedom. Ready to start polling? Then you can use the mobile app as early as June of 2018 apparently.
