Write access by anonymous users


Hi, I’m trying to build an app where Blockstack authenticated users create a poll and then anonymous users can vote on it.
I’m unsure how I can let anonymous users vote and let them update the poll results? Should the results be stored centralised perhaps?


Hey @martijn19,

I think the Blockstack app https://forms.id/ can do this. You don’t need to allow other people to write to your Gaia hub; what you would do instead is run a Radiks server that lets your participants (1) store their poll result in their respective Gaia hubs and (2) submit an encrypted copy to your server. That way, you can get an aggregate view of the data while ensuring that users continue to own the authoritative copies.
