Voting and gaming
« on: September 04, 2015, 09:48:13 am »

Hi guys

I didn't dig very deep in voting system NXT has, but I'd like to ask, will this scenario with current voting system could work?

1. There is voting "are you idiot?" :) Voting is "yes" or "not" by NXT coins balance, let's say during next 1000 blocks.
2. My account A has 100K NXT and I vote with total amount.
3. After, I transfer my 100K NXT to account B and vote again on the same vote with the new account having 100K NXT and so on with accounts C,D,E...

Will this work? If yes, then it's easy gaming of the vote system, even when vote is by asset or whatever. What did I miss?

Poll results are frozen at the finish height based on account balances just prior to the finish height. Until the poll is finished, the "results" can change due to changes in account balances.

So, after translation from english to non native english, you are saying, that my vote with account A 100K NXT will be 0 vote, if I transfer 100K NXT to account B during voting period and vote again with account B? That means voting by NXT follows coins until finish height?

Yes and yes.

There are two places in the NRS Client (Wallet) where you can view votes. One of them, the Followed Polls screen, allows you to see votes as they are cast even before the completion of the poll. Such votes are preliminary and are subject to change until the finish height is reached. The other place is the Poll Results pop-up window, which is opened by clicking on the Results button on the My Votes or the My Polls screens. Votes and results only appear in this pop-up window when the poll is complete, so these are final results.
