Voting and other Interesting uses for assets and distributions

I was wondering if anyone else knows other potential  uses for assets.

Such as Voting:

[size=16px][font=arial][color=#000000]Counterparty supports voting through user-created assets. If you create an asset (‘EXAMPLE’), you can create any other asset (such as EXAMPLEVOTE) and pay distributions of EXAMPLEVOTE  to all holders of EXAMPLE automatically. [/color][/font][/size]

[size=16px][font=arial][color=#000000]To send available votes to the holders of your asset, go to Counterwallet and click on your asset EXAMPLE, and then click pay distribution. Choose EXAMPLEVOTE as the currency to distribute. This way, all holders of EXAMPLE will receive EXAMPLEVOTE in the amount you specify. [/color][/font][/size]

[size=16px][font=arial][color=#000000]Now all you need are as many different XCP addresses as there are choices in your poll. To cast their votes, holders of EXAMPLE can then send the EXAMPLEVOTE they have received to whichever choice(s) they agree with. The results of the poll will be public and verifiable thanks to the Bitcoin blockchain.[/color][/font][/size][/quote]

Yes this is true you can do voting this way. However i would think this is a poor mans version of voting.


How much does it cost to pay a distribution in transaction fees? Do we need to pay for every user that receives a distribution, just like we would have to pay for every send?

For important enough votes, sending btc to cover transaction fees might be worth it. Otherwise, votes could be handled off-chain through message signing.
