Newsletter #4

Hello from our CEO

Again it’s been an incredibly busy period; hiring and training up the team (we now have 25 full time staff (not including community moderators) as well as getting into a weekly release cycle for our CANApps. The team has released four CANApps (decentralised applications in the CanYa ecosystem) as well as full crypto integration in Bountysource.com. We have signed on additional partners, was listed on another exchange and have participated in conferences all around the world. We ran a hackathon, participated BlockEngine’s blockchain startups in Melbourne and donated our first tranche of CAN to our charity partners.

Our team is incredibly focused to build up a decentralised ecosystem for peer-peer services and we have a lot of exciting things on the horizon; with more CANApp releases, more partners and more contributions to the community. The CanYa team is very happy to be supported by our fantastic community, and will continue to boldly build and show the world how decentralised technologies will disrupt legacy business models and return value to users.

CanApps:

We want to create an entire suite of CanYa tools that can be used by our freelancers inside of the CanYa ecosystem. This will be achieved through our awesome CANApps. These apps are also designed to help newcomers navigate through the cryptocurrency space as one of CanYa’s goals is to help spread the meaningful adoption of cryptocurrency.

This month we launched the first four CANapps:

  • CANInvoice – A free, easy to use invoice creation tool for all CanYa users
  • CANStation – An easy to use tool to help people set the correct gas fees when interacting with the Ethereum network.
  • CANShare – (previously CANTransfer) – an amazing tool that uses IPFS to allow people to transfer large files (up to 100GB) across the internet free of charge!
  • CANTrack – Simple, effective, time management software that allows records to be kept immutably on the blockchain.

There are also many more exciting CANApps in the pipeline to be released over the coming months!

Bountysource by CanYa:

This month was also a massive milestone for Bountysource with the addition of crypto bounties and smart contract auditing to the platform! This is a massive space in today’s cryptocurrency market and Bountysource aims to leverage it’s 50,000 developer community and brand power to become the go-to place for crypto bounties and smart contract audits.

The Largest bounty in Bountysource History:

Education First has revived a three-year-old Mozilla bounty that has sat dormant on Bountysource.  The mammoth bounty immediately got traction in the community and as per writing this update developers are working around the clock on solutions.

This particular bug, the Mozilla Firefox WebRTC (Web Real-Time Communications) issue which relates to the lack of support for NTLM/Kerberos authentication in Firefox.  What this means in native English is that users are unable to capture & stream audio/visual media.

As progress continues we will update the community on both the solution and the process of the developers.  Bounties of this size are rare in the open-source community, and so naturally, they create intrigue when someone starts plotting a solution.

Given that we are huge supporters of an open-source future, we are very excited about the prospect of more large companies using services such as Bountysource to solve open-source software issues.  We will continue to update the community on the progress of one of the biggest open-source bounties in the world.

Community Updates:

Charity Winners

As outlined in the CanYaCoin Asset Contract, we will donate 10% of the unsold tokens from our ICO to a charity poolThe charity pool is intended to go towards charitable organisations, to support for-purpose projects in the Web3 space, and to contribute to education in software development to support the growth of the blockchain and Web3 projects.

The winner of the inaugural Charity Vote was AidCoin, coincidentally a project focused on making donations more transparent by linking the contribution to a blockchain.

The AidCoin solution is very important due to the social distrust with the allocation of charitable funds in recent times.  Charities have a tremendous role to play in the improvement of the most vulnerable, but it will only be a viable method if people can be assured that their money is getting to the places and causes it was intended to go.

We are delighted to help power the AIDChain platform as it aims to make the nonprofit sector more transparent.

Binance Dexathon:

This month CanYa also hosted a Dexathon with our good friends Type Human and Consensys to solve the Binance hackathon problem of creating a truly decentralised exchange. We had a great turn out amongst the Melbourne blockchain development community and some very impressive solutions were proposed and potentially some will be implemented!

The weekend refreshments were taken care of by the legends at Young Henry’s who kept everyone sane as they worked deep into the night all weekend.

Bountysource Introduces Crypto Bounties

Crypto Bounties

Bountysource, effective immediately will have the ability for all of the world’s crypto projects to post their own bounties backed by their own ERC-20 tokens (or cryptocurrency of their choosing).

This is a huge opportunity for Bountysource and the CanYa ecosystem. The demand for good blockchain developers far exceeds the supply, also, the nature of the development work often means it is done in shorter timeframes than what would be needed from a full-time employee. By allowing crypto projects the ability to outsource some of their development work and giving blockchain developers the chance to work in short stints on a number of projects – the platform will offer developers and projects alike the utility of being dextrous and nimble with their time.

Shortly, we will add the ability for projects to natively host smart contract auditing on the Bountysource platform too. This will ensure that projects can confidently publish their smart contracts in the knowledge it has been externally and objectively audited by experts in the field. Combining these two features means Bountysource will become the go-to platform for blockchain and decentralised technology development.

ETH, CAN & All Other ERC20 Tokens Now Accepted on Bountysource

Allowing crypto payment is important for many macroeconomic reasons that obviously align with the CanYa project’s core beliefs and objectives.  However beyond expediting the adoption of cryptocurrencies, allowing ERC20 tokens in addition to ETH as a payment method removes genuine barriers to entry for many people that include censorship, and restrictions of trade.

Two important things to note with regards to listing crypto bounties;

1.  Currently, bounties are either crypto OR fiat based and not a mixture of the two.  Fluid bounties that accept any payment are a planned upgrade in the coming months.

2.  Anonymous funding of existing bounties is available, however anonymous backers will not be entitled to approve/reject bounty claims. It’s also recommended to have more than one backer on a bounty as this reduces the risk of improper disbursement of funds.

Bountysource & CanYa

Bountysource, owned by CanYa, is the world’s first and most popular open-source bug bounty platform.  In recent months we have been working hard to make adjustments to reinvigorate the community, code, and UX features without moving away from the core functionality of the platform.

Bountysource directly aligns with CanYa’s long term goals of being a peer-to-peer marketplace of services for digital nomads to work in their own time, on their own terms.

Restriction of Trade & PayPal Issues

Many countries are considered “prohibited” by PayPal and therefore can’t send or receive monies using the platform.  This is more than problematic for not just freelancers but anyone who is looking to access the digital economy in any of the following countries.

  • Belarus
  • Burma (Myanmar)
  • Cote d’Ivoire
  • Democratic Republic of the Congo
  • Iran
  • Iraq
  • Liberia (Former Regime of Charles Taylor)
  • Persons Undermining the Sovereignty of Lebanon or Its Democratic Processes and Institutions
  • North Korea
  • Sierra Leone
  • Sudan
  • Syria
  • Western Balkans
  • Zimbabwe

The CanYa ecosystem is particularly aware of how important the gig economy will be to empowering developing nations.  We are also aware that many people will earn and not buy their first crypto.  Crypto bounties will help remove another barrier to entry of not only crypto payments, but payment in general to many people around the world.

This ability to trade without the limitations of borders, is one of the key principles and benefits of crypto as a payment method, and something CanYa and Bountysource are very proud to be facilitating.

Bountysource Development Strategy & Takeaways

In the true spirit of agile software development, we are releasing the minimum viable product to the market. This build/measure/learn approach allows us to incorporate feedback from the community quickly into future releases, progressively refining and improving the crypto payment functionality.

CAN tokens will become an integral part of the Bountysource ecosystem. Bounties posted in CAN will incur the lowest fees, be featured on the front page and be eligible for free tweets with details of the bounty! CAN tokens will also be required for pinned bounties and other premium services.  This is a significant development, which we are very excited about but expect many more updates to come with regards to Bountysource.

CANTrack: Organised Freelancer Tool

CANTrack is time-tracking tool designed to help freelancers and businesses alike to manage tasks and report on jobs to be completed.  It functions as both an organisational tool, and a reference ledger to help co-ordinate parties in different time-zones.

How does it work exactly?

Like all CANApps, CANTrack is designed to be intuitively simple to use.  No logins, no downloads, no data capture.  You simply click ‘Add Task’ and it will prompt you to title your task.

CanTrack-Screen.png
Once you have named the task you will press the ‘play’ button which will start to time how long it takes to complete the task.  You can pause or stop this segment of work at any time.  When you do, you will be prompted to add and name another task.  This segment of work will be represented in a different colour so that you can easily discern how much time was spent on each respective task.

cantrack2.png

After you have completed your job you then click “Preview and Publish.”
The document will be published on the Ropsten network, which is an alternative Ethereum network which incurs no fees.  You will need to switch to this network in your Metamask account to access this network.

Screen Shot 2018-05-17 at 1.09.45 pm.png

Once you have seen the summary of works completed and you are content with the accuracy of the document, you can submit your timesheet to the Ropsten network.  For your own due diligence, you can save a PDF version for recording keeping.

Screen Shot 2018-05-17 at 1.06.13 pm.png

By clicking “publish” you will be taken to your Metamask screen to submit the smart contract to the blockchain.  As this is the Ropsten Network you can use “fake” ETH to power the contract.  After the transaction is verified, you will be taken to the screen that will have both a shareable link to the timesheet and a hash link to the Etherscan.

Screen Shot 2018-05-17 at 1.07.22 pm.png

In note form

  1.  Simply Add and name a Task that you are doing.
  2.  Time the task by clicking the “play” button on the set assignment.
  3.  Add additional tasks until the work is complete.
  4.  Click “Preview and Publish” work.
  5.  Switch your Metamask to the “Ropsten Network.”
  6.  Review that work is accurate and then publish that work to the Ropsten Network.
  7.  Once that transaction is complete share the link to the document and save a PDF for your own record-keeping.

Takeaway

CANTrack is a piece of software that allows you to organise your day to the minute and is an essential tool for both sides of the freelancer economy.  The fact that it is both intuitive to use and produces immutable records of work completed means that it is a tool that will help avoid confusion and make record keeping effortless. Like all CANApps it does not require you to log in, enter data, or rely on central servers.  The data is contributed, stored and shared by the freelancer using the App.  Exactly as it should be.

CANApp Launch #3 – CANShare

CanYa_Folio

CANShare:

We are pleased to announce our latest CANApp; CANShare!

CANShare is going to be a completely new and awesome way to send and receive large files of up to 3TB! No more dropboxes or shared drives! CANShare makes it incredibly easy, private and secure to send all of your project files! It is built on IPFS (InterPlanetary File System) technology.

What-is-IPFS-

What is IPFS?

IPFS is a network created by Juan Benet, the founder of Filecoin, that allows people to host and share files on a system of nodes.  Essentially, it’s a new way to store and access information.

It works as a peer-to-peer protocol where each node stores a collection of hashed files. A client who wants to retrieve any of those files enjoys access to an abstraction layer where it simply needs to call the hash of the file it wants.  Rather than storing files, IPFS simply stores the hashes to files on series of nodes

IPFS allows users who run a node to work together to send and receive information with each other.  Instead of having to go through a far away, central server, you can get a file quickly, nearly instantly from the closest node that has what you need.

The simple sentence explanation is that this is a new file system to send and receive information that makes use of decentralised web 3.0 technology.

CANShare

The newest CAN app will allow large files to be transferred using decentralised technology (IPFS). It will offer great utility for anyone looking to send large files especially as no service currently makes this type of file transfer so accessible and achievable.

Current alternatives such as DropBox and Shared Drives require logins through central ID ports such as Facebook and Google and are also controlled by central servers.  CANShare allows you to bypass all of this, and just contribute and access the network with no bottleneck or barrier to the information.

An example of how this might work is if a filmmaker needed to send an 80GB HD video to a client for review. That file could be added to the network with a link that could be easily sent to the receiver in complete privacy with no centralised storage.  Frictionless, borderless and free decentralised technology.  This is an application that offers decentralised utility in the truest sense of the concept.

Screen Shot 2018-05-09 at 3.04.06 pm

How it works:

The beauty of CANShare is that it is incredibly straightforward to use.  With zero requirements to verify ID or login, you can simply upload your file and once it is successfully hosted on IPFS it will produce a hash link that allows you to access and share the file.

1.  Find the local file you want to upload.
2.  A hash link will be created that allows you to access and share that file.
3.  Once you have shared or saved that hash, you can then delete the archived upload history by clearing your cache.

Future Improvements

Moving forward we will make it easier to remove the hash link from sitting on the home page and allow you to delete or archive the hashes.  Note: this does not mean the hash is deleted, as the IPFS will still host the file, however, it means that your upload history is not publicly available to anyone who was to access your computer as a privacy measure.

We will also integrate email so you can email hashes to people once the files have been uploaded to IPFS. There will also be some UI/UX improvements in the coming days.

CANShare is another great app in the suite of tools available to our digital freelancers within the CanYa ecosystem.

CanYa Awards AidCoin 100,000CAN as Inaugural Charity Vote Winners.

CanYa Community Charity Vote

We are incredibly excited to announce that AidCoin is the inaugural winner of the community voted CanYa Community Charity Vote.

As outlined in the CanYaCoin Asset Contract, we will donate 10% of the unsold tokens from our ICO to a charity poolThe charity pool is intended to go towards charitable organisations, to support for-purpose projects in the Web3 space, and to contribute to education in software development to support the growth of the blockchain and Web3 projects.

CanYa as an organisation believes in the pay-it-forward concept. As per the whiteapaper, 10% of all CanYa revenue goes to our charity pool via the asset contract.

screen-shot-2018-03-27-at-3-31-23-pm.pngAidCoin

AidCoin is a tremendous project that believes in creating transparency towards donations to charitable organisations.  In some ways, it is fitting that our first donation is towards a company that is building a more transparent donating environment.

The AidCoin solution is very important due to the social distrust with the allocation of charitable funds in recent times.  Charities have a tremendous role to play in the improvement of the most vulnerable, but it will only be a viable method if people can be assured that their money is getting to the places and causes it was intended to go.

We are delighted to help power the AIDChain platform as it aims to make the nonprofit sector more transparent.

Allocation of funds

The funds will be sent to AidCoin in batches over the coming four months. AidCoin has a number of  exciting partnerships being announced in the near future. We will therefore allow our CanYa HODL club members to vote where the CanYa tokens are to be sent in line with the new charity partnership announcements!

CanYa HODL Airdrop

Moving Forward

CanYa will continue to donate to projects, as voted by our community, on projects that we believe are creating positive change within the blockchain ecosystem.  We encourage as many members of our community to vote so that we can best represent the interests of those that support the CanYa project.  Keep your eyes peeled for details about future Charity allocations or send us a note at support@canya.com for more information on this initiative.

Bountysource, Education First increase Mozilla WebRTC bounty to a whopping $50,000!

Bountysource is a dedicated crowdfunding platform for open source software, used by organisations such as IBM, Ripple, Facebook and Signal.


See link to bounty here:

Education First posts $50k Bounty for a dormant Mozilla issue.


Bountysource?

Founded in 2012 and acquired by CanYa in 2017, Bountysource was the first of such platforms and now boasts a 50,000 strong community of passionate open-source software and blockchain enthusiasts. Bounties are funded by members to incentivise developers around the world to solve open issues or feature requests for particular projects.

BoSo_Blog-Pics-Mockup

Education First’s Bounty

The Mozilla Firefox WebRTC (Web Real-Time Communications) issue was first reported in 2015 on Bugzilla and relates to the lack of support for NTLM/Kerberos authentication in Firefox. Where a corporate proxy uses these types of authentication, this means that users are unable to capture & stream audio/visual media.

Education First (EF) has provided life-changing education for global citizens for 50 years in over 100 countries. In its mission to connect students with teachers around the world, EF is constantly exploring the latest technology and communication standards. WebRTC is currently the most interesting of these standards for its ability to function without plugins and in low bandwidth environments; however, there is still limited browser support, particularly in more secure corporate environments.

$50,000 up for grabs!

In March this year, EF posted an $8,000 bounty to encourage development on the WebRTC issue. Despite the substantial bounty, the community discovered the work required to fix Mozilla’s WebRTC issue was daunting.

Today Education First has sought to further incentivise developers by increasing the bounty to $50,000 — One of the largest known bounties available to the open-source community. Education First hopes the bounty is enough to attract developers to take up the challenge to solve a problem which has remained unsolved for 3 years.

CanYa Alpha launched to the community!

The day we have all been waiting for is here! 

The CanYa Alpha web-app has arrived and we can’t wait for you to join and start freelancing in the the crypto gig economy!

The purpose of this blog is to provide you with some quick updates on the features and functionality of the ecosystem, as well as top tips on how to begin.

First things first; all users of the CanYa Marketplace will need 100 CAN Tokens in their MetaMask address to place and receive jobs.  CanYaCoin (CAN) is the native token of the CanYa marketplace, which means it is the currency that drives the CanYa economy.

How do I get CanYa tokens to set up my profile?

There are multiple ways you can acquire CAN tokens.

The most straightforward is through any of the exchanges listed on Canya.io, including, KuCoin, IDEX, and FatBTC.

You can also convert Ethereum or other popular cryptocurrencies directly to CAN through our partnerships with Bancor and Changelly.  Down the track, this will be incredibly important to how the marketplace functions, but right now it also plays an important role in removing a barrier to entry to the platform.

When you go to the CanYa.com landing page, you will be met with two options; to buy ETH or to buy CAN.  These shortcuts are powered by the following technology.

Ontwerp-zonder-titel-1-min.png

Bancor

Bancor is a trading network that lets users convert between tokens like an exchange. The decentralised, trust-less network allows you to convert between two tokens of your choice without any counter-party for continuous liquidity. What this means is that CAN token users can hold, receive, transfer, request, liquidate and purchase tokens.

Screen-Shot-2017-12-03-at-14.24.47

Changelly

Changelly is an instant digital currency exchange that allows users to exchange between cryptocurrencies, by plugging into major exchanges. Changelly also allows you to purchase cryptocurrency with your credit or debit card.

CanYa_uport_bug

Identity Registration for a Decentralised Marketplace

In order to achieve a truly decentralised marketplace, we need to protect our users and providers information from capture.  In order to do this, we are using uPort to protect your data and identity while also allowing users to exchange information privately.

Download uPort to your phone, and it will communicate with MetaMask to confirm your identification.  All of your profile information will be stored in uPort, not on CanYa, so this means data such as your photo must be uploaded onto uPort for it to show up in CanYa.

As per our previous update, uPort is cutting-edge technology and has cause some initial users issues. To avoid a bottleneck of users trying to login simultaneously we have built a more traditional login that taps into your existing available information. This is important as it allows more people to interact with the platform, but it should also be noted it is a short-term solution, as we push towards the marketplace being completely decentralised.

We are currently working on a native CanYa ID app that will cover all of the functionality of uPort and more!

Using The Marketplace


Screen Shot 2018-04-20 at 3.21.02 pm.png

When you log into the platform successfully you will be met with profiles from providers that have been hand-selected as part of our Pioneers and Ambassadors programs.

Opening these profiles will allow you to look at tasks completed, skill-sets, timezone, and other useful information to inform your decision to hire a provider.  If you decide you want to engage with a provider, you can post them a job request.

When you engage your selected provider you will then have a private communications channel to speak about the task in more detail, and in real-time.

Screen Shot 2018-04-20 at 3.29.36 pm

There is also the search function that enables you to look for specific providers, or providers based on a skill-set that you are seeking.

We also have a CanYa Chat Bot that will help you navigate the platform if anything is not immediately clear.

As this is the launch of our Alpha platform, your feedback is warmly welcomed and greatly appreciated you can provide feedback via the various links on the platform. We have created a forum for this feedback which can be reached here: http://forum.canya.io

We are incredibly excited to welcome you to the CanYa platform, as together, we build the decentralised future of work!

Known issues

As this is the Alpha version of the CanYa platform there are a number of things that the team are currently working to improve. These are:

  • Log in issues involving the uPort technology
  • Search function can return erroneous data
  • User Experience issues
  • User Interface issues
  • User Account Management issues

The dev team are working hard to improve these issues and they can be improved even further with your feedback!

CanYa Apps

We are incredibly excited about our CanYa Apps and we will detail each CanYa App more thoroughly in the coming weeks. The aim is for CanYa to offer the full suite of services that any freelancer in today’s world could need. This creates a greater value proposition for the CanYa ecosystem and token while generating longer and more frequent engagement for our users. They will also serve as a marketing funnel to introduce external users to CanYa after using our awesome apps. At this stage we are aiming to release a new CanYa App every month!

Here are the CanYa Apps that are ready and will be released in the coming weeks post the Alpha going live:

CANInvoice

An easily manipulated invoice template for all of our freelancers to provide clean, professional and accurate invoices for their work.

 

CanYa_CanInvoice_Illustration.png

CanYa25

A very exciting decentralised ‘kickstarter’ program for future CanYa freelancers. Do you have great ideas but you’re not sure it will work? Maybe you live in a country with no access to traditional finances to start your new online business? Here’s where CanYa 25 comes in!

Budding freelancers can pitch their ideas and the CanYa community can donate $CAN to their cause. The $CAN is held in escrow until it reaches 25,000 CAN. Once this occurs the $CAN is sent to the freelancer to be used to start their very own business on the CanYa platform.

CanYa_hero_Can25

This program has huge potential and is inline with the ethos of CanYa being the world’s truly global services platform. CanYa will empower freelancers from everywhere in the world that were traditionally excluded from exisiting platforms due to access to traditional finance institutions. CanYa 25 is an extension of this sentiment.

Future technology roadmap

The future vision for CanYa is monumental. Here is what the current roadmap looks like:

Combined

Conclusion

The CanYa vision is vast and incredibly exciting. We are at the ground level and we cannot wait to build the future with our community. Please use the platform, create a profile and provide feedback.

We are proud to be able to launch a global Alpha only three and a half months after finishing our ICO but there is a lot more to come! This is an exciting time for the CanYa platform and the $CAN token. We also have exciting news regarding Bountysource powered by CanYa that we will share very soon.
