So what is Cool Cousin?

Cool Cousin is a brand new, intimate way to travel and learn about what to do in cities all over the world. It is like having the digital equivalent of the ‘cool cousin’ you may have stayed with while traveling in the past.

Basically, you will be able to explore a new city with information provided by verified, genuine ‘cousins’ who can provide quality advice and tips on any number of potential things to do in their city. They are rapidly growing with over 500,000 ‘cousins’ and are undertaking a highly anticipated ICO on the 10th of April that will be open for only 24hrs!

CanYa partners with Chinese retail behemoth JD.com for blockchain accelerator

CanYa’s Biggest Announcement Ever!

JD.com, China’s largest retailer, offline and online, has 266 million customers and is one of the fastest growing and most innovative businesses in the world with a revenue last year of $50bn (USD). JD has always been on the forefront of innovation and has introduced a new AI Catapult Accelerator (AICA).

JD’s blockchain accelerator program aims to unlock the ‘transformative potential of startups demonstrating cutting edge talent in the blockchain space’. CanYa is incredibly proud and excited to announce to our community that we are in the inaugural cohort of this program along with Bluzelle, Nuggets, Devery and Bankorus!

Asset 1

CanYa will be receiving the full backing of JD international business development, immense marketing / PR resources and vast network, including promotion through an extensive international marketing and PR push on behalf of JD and the program. The program commenced with a signing ceremony at Nasdaq (NYC) where JD is traded, and then the first cohort will then be guided through the 6 month international accelerator program from March 2018.


“This is a validation of CanYa’s business model and global disruptive potential. JD is one of the most significant technology companies in the world, to have their full support and backing is huge for our platform and the acceleration of blockchain technology”  

Chris McLoughlin – CanYa CMO


So what does this mean for CanYa and the road map?!

This has potentially accelerated the CanYa road map from a market penetration perspective by years! CanYa will now have direct access into China (and JD’s huge 250 million customer base) and a further international audience in line with JD’s global expansion program. Having JD’s full backing over the next 6 months and beyond will open a huge range of opportunities that will develop throughout 2018.

CanYa, being a truly international platform of services, will be translated into Chinese and offer a number of possibilities for JD’s huge customer base. This includes a seamless ‘CanYa Widget’ for buyers to hire a local CanYa service provider relevant to their purchases. For example, someone buying furniture could effortlessly book a CanYa provider on checkout to construct and install it in their home. This feature would be relevant for a huge range of product lines on the JD platform.

JD also have the opportunity to move into the home services game similar to Amazon. This would naturally align to being powered by the CanYa platform and offer growth for the brand and $CAN token.

So what next?

The CanYa team are currently in NYC with officials from the highest levels of JD. The PR and marketing efforts for this news will be significant over the coming months.

Artboard 8.png

The CanYa platform is ahead of schedule and will begin beta-testing with our community members in the next week. Alpha release of CanYa 2.0 is due for late March. The team will then be working closely with JD to promote the platform, grow its user base and integrate CanYa into JD.com’s exisiting platform. This is all great news for our CanYa community and $CAN token holders!


“JD.com is a global leader in making meaningful change in the lives of consumers, and we are incredibly excited to see them embrace decentralised technologies and encourage their mainstream adoption. By creating a Blockchain accelerator and working with blockchain startups with potential, JD is cutting through the hype and providing support where it is needed most right now; shipping technology to millions of users globally.” 

JP Thor – CanYa CEO


Final words

The CanYa team are incredibly excited to announce this news and look forward to the huge possibilities that JD.com and its 250 million users will bring. We thank all of our community and $CAN token holders for their support and hope that this news proves how hard the team have been working and how much potential the CanYa project truly has!

CanYa & Bancor Protocol – Providing Token Liquidity

CanYa & Bancor Protocol

CanYa announces integration with the Bancor Protocol to provide access to the Bancor decentralised liquidity network.

Bancor Protocol is a Decentralized Liquidity Network that allows users to hold any Ethereum token and convert it to any other token in the network. The exchange is achieved with no counter party, at an automatically calculated price, using a simple web wallet. Smart tokens interconnect to form token liquidity networks, allowing user-generated cryptocurrencies to thrive.

Canya_bancor 1

By integrating the Bancor Protocol, CAN token holders gain access to continuous liquidity regardless of trade volume or exchange listings, where any integrated token can be automatically converted to any other directly from any Web3 wallet, such as MetaMask.

Currently integrated tokens include ETH, BNT (the Bancor Network TokenTM), GNO (Gnosis), and a long list of announced projects soon to be activated.

Between the Bountysource relaunch and the upcoming CanYa platform there will be a massive demand for the CAN token, it is a natural step for us to use Bancor to provide our users with an easy way to convert tokens

JP Thorbjornsen, CEO of CanYa.


Partnering with Bancor will provide a level of liquidity that will allow access to everyone who wants to be a part of the CanYa and Bountysource platforms on our journey to revolutionise online services. We have been impressed with Bancor’s progress and believe our two platforms share the same ethos of disrupting the status quo with the power that a decentralised platform allows.

JP Thorbjornsen, CEO of CanYa.


CanYaCoin

CanYa finished Australia’s second most successful ICO (after Power Ledger) in December and has been moving rapidly to execute its ambitious road map for 2018.

CanYa is looking capitalise on a $2 trillion dollar (and rapidly growing) market with a 20x disruption in price and a suite of other powerful features only made possible by blockchain technology.

CanYa has also acquired Bountysource and its 46,000+ user base in late December, 2017. Bountysource is the world’s first and largest peer-to-peer platform for open-source software developers to post and complete open-source bounties. Bountysource will be adding cryptocurrency bounties and smart contract auditing, which will be in strong demand throughout 2018 and beyond.

CanYa partners with Origin Protocol

Origin Partnership

CanYa is pleased to announce that we have added another awesome new tech stack partner. Origin Protocol empowers developers and businesses to build decentralised marketplaces on Ethereum blockchain, to enable sharing economies.

The protocol makes it easy to create and manage listings for the fractional usage of assets and services. Buyers and sellers can discover each other, browse listings, make bookings, leave ratings/reviews and much more.

Origin is already proving a run-away success and is going to continue to become a big player in the crypto space. It’s pre-sale has been massively oversubscribed, and has not even been opened yet.

CanYa & Origin

By using Origin’s technology, CanYa will be able to accelerate its tech development and decentralisation road-map.

The CanYa 2.0 platform will include features like the CanYaCall and more


“The Origin team has been talking to the CanYa team for a while and it was clear from the start that we shared a common philosophy and goal. They are a great group of people with a very talented and diverse team. We are very impressed with the work they have already done and how they conducted their token sale. We will be in close communication and look forward to building with them”

Coleman Maher, Head of Partnerships at Origin.


CanYa and Origin strongly share the vision of cutting out rent-seeking middlemen. These shared aims to take marketplaces into the blockchain era have been a driver behind the partnership.

Partnerships like this are key to delivering the CanYa platform and to aligning with the ethos of the open-source collaborative blockchain development community.

CanYaCoin

The CanYa developer team has been hard at work since the end of the ICO to deliver our international, decentralised services platform. The CanYa 2.0 platform is well under way, and incorporates the valuable lessons we learnt during our MVP launch and test phase in the Australian market.

CanYaCoin and CanYa Web-app mock up

The CanYa platform will be the go to place for all digital and home services. The benefits of using blockchain technology, such as Origin’s, mean the CanYa platform will be 20-x cheaper than competitors, while offering significant advantages to borderless digital nomads and professionals.

The Bountysource crypto portal and the CanYa platform itself will be powered by the CAN token. Once these platforms are released in 2018, demand will only increase for the CAN token on the free market.

We look forward to rewarding all of our early contributors, HODL Club members and loyal community when this happens!
