This past week Scatter ran an adhoc poll on why users keep their tokens on exchanges. It's very informal, and the data is likely dirty because the users we targeted were through our channels (Twitter, Telegram, and email). Rami is also not a statistician
The poll was largely prompted by Colin’s video in which he mentions that a certain percentage of users just don’t understand that by keeping their tokens on exchanges they are ceding their rights as voters in the EOS ecosystem. We're big fans and if you prefer to proxy your votes, we highly recommend him.
Then again, if all this stuff about voting and proxying and exchanges sounds like Greek to you, let us give you a quick primer on how voting works in EOS so that you can be up to speed when we get to the actual results of the poll.
Then we will get to the interesting results that we had from just over 650 respondents. There are concrete steps we can take to make substantive changes to how our ecosystem works, and we think we can do them together if we are smart and dedicated to the cause.
