CanYa is Coming to South Korea and We’re Celebrating by Giving Away 1000 CAN Tokens!

CanYa in South Korea

After visiting South Korea on a business trip at the beginning of the year, CanYa CEO JP Thor was set on committing more efforts to connect with the local crypto-community and build strong relationships.

CanYa recognises South Korea as an international hub for crypto. Koreans hold nearly 33% of the world’s ETH supply, and the local crypto industry is demonstrating some incredible infrastructure, exchanges and promising projects.

We have just launched our Telegram and KakaoTalk (Canya Korean Community) online communities. Sign up now to get involved and to stay up to day with the CanYa project in Korea!

CanYaCoin AirDrop

To celebrate our trip to South Korea in March/April, one lucky member of the Telegram South Korea Community will win 1,000CAN TOKENS, selected at random from the group on March 31.

CanYa_South_Korea_AirdropNot only that, we’re also doing an Airdrop of 5-20 CAN for every single Telegram & KakaoTalk community member (that registers via the link below)!

Register for the Airdrop and join the community here.

CanYa Travel Plans

If you are in Seoul we would love to meet you there in March/April! Here are our travel plans:

  • On 31st March 2018, JP will be in Seoul to address and meet the local community at the Catalyze Meetup (tickets released soon). The event is designed to educate, entertain and enlighten developers, investors, entrepreneurs with up-to-date discussion about regulation, technology and trends in blockchain and cryptocurrency.As major partners and supporters of the event, JP will be speaking on how to run a successful ICO, why CanYa, and his outlook on crypto for 2018. It will be informative for both newcomers and pre-ICO investors alike to the project.

    It will also be a good opportunity to meet our community face-to-face, so please don’t be shy and say hello to either JP or Kelsie if you see them.

  • While we are in Korea, we will also be attending the Deconomy, Distributed Economy, Conference in Seoul on 3-4 April 2018. We look forward to sharing ideas with some of the strongest thought leaders and projects in the space from the around the world, including Vitalik Buterin, Roger Ver and Joseph Poon.

We are incredibly excited about building a strong Korean community.

Korea is one of the most learned crypto countries in the world. If you want to be involved in helping to manage our online communities, or any other facet of the community that you think can add value, please reach out at support@canya.com

More updates to come, so stay posted to the blog in the coming days.

Asia-Pacific Ethereum Meet up: What we learned

JP and Kelsie flew to Thailand on Friday to take part in the Asia-Pacific Ethereum Meet up. The trip itself was a whirlwind; both of the ideas presented and our compressed schedule.   However it was incredibly beneficial gathering, where CanYa was able to share our progress and hear ideas with the inner circle of Ethereum. Here are some of the insights that we came away with.

bangkok_meetup_photo_2

More than anything the biggest take-away from this event, was how community focused the Ethereum network genuinely is. Despite the fact that many of the projects presenting (which of course included ethereum itself) are some of the biggest tokens in the world, the mood of the gathering was focused, open and collaborative.

The second take-away was just how wide the interest in the event, and by extension the blockchain talent in this part of the world. This was obvious as the event drew a truly international audience for a meet up that was specifically focused on the developments of the Asia-Pacific region.

Even though this is the third point, and it almost goes without saying, but it’s always humbling to be reminded of the genuine talent in the ethereum community. We heard from the ethereum core team as they spoke about supporting the development of scalable dapps with the Casper and Sharding initiatives, which is something incredibly relevant to CanYa. Its remarkable how quickly the platform is evolving and improving to deal with these issues of scalability moving forward.

The keynote speech was of course done by Vitalik, and he spoke about how some of the cryptoeconomic ideas used to build blockchains, could also be applied to make the internet “less broken.”

bangkok_meetup_photo

What I assumed is meant by this has to do with the decentralised principles of blockchain technology, which reduces the ability for bad actors to manipulate a system. When the Internet was built, it was of course done so in a centralised way. This meant that things like data were exchanged, stored and ultimately monetised by companies such as Google, Facebook and Amazon without the consent or knowledge of the people that the data belongs to.

However, the implications of data control are far more perverse than loss of privacy.  This is because having the data is one thing, but being able to release the potential of this data in the form of predictive analysis is quite another.  Predictive analytics is an area of statistics that deals with extracting information from data and using it to predict trends and behavioral patterns.  Predictive analysis is already the lifeblood of many industries such as advertising, fraud detection, and credit lending.  The danger lies in the fact that the more data collected allows for a more specific predictive analysis and more accurate surveillance.  An Orwellian prophecy.

An interesting project that was not brought up by name at this meetup, but is relevant to this discussion is Augur.  Augur is a prediction market platform,  built on the Ethereum platform, which rewards the user for correctly predicting future events.  Rather than raw data, this platform relies on the scientific principle known as the wisdom of the crowd.  This states that if you ask enough people to answer a certain question, their average answer is far more accurate than any expert. The cleverest person is no match for the collective brain, which is why centralisation of governance does not work.

Imagine being able to Google questions about things that haven’t happened yet, and getting accurate odds of their occurrence.  This is what Augur is proposing, however instead of just getting the information voluntarily, Augur rewards the people financially that accurately predict future events.  This means that the user is in control of their own data, and is rewarded for it its use (if they allow it be used).

If the Internet were to be redesigned with decentralised principles (which is a constantly discussed topic) all data would be private. This would make the technology far less invasive (as a start). Ethereum co-founder Joseph Lubin is attempting to do just this.  Using the Ethereum platform he is attempting to build a decentralised web 3.0 called Consensys.

Also in attendance was Omisego (OMG) and the Ethereum Community Fund. In a first of its kind, half a dozen ICO companies came together to create the fund that plans to pay out more than $100 million to promising projects in the Ethereum crypto space.

This above all else represents the values and ideals of a community that is learning and evolving through collaboration.  The CanYa team believes in collective intelligence, and by extension could not hope to be a part of a greater collective than the Ethereum network.

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.

Artboard 10.png

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 HODL Club

The CanYa HODL Club

The CanYa team have been working tirelessly since the ICO to build the CanYa platform. CanYa is a long term project that will completely revolutionise the way we all book and pay for services. We want as many people from the community with us on this journey which is why we created the CanYa HODL club.

The aim of the CanYa HODL club is to get as many long term believers of the CanYaCoin Token together in an exclusive group while also rewarding them for their loyalty with air-dropped tokens from CanYa and our partners.

You can sign up for the HODL club at hodl.canya.com

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

Our team is dedicated to demonstrating the benefits of cryptocurrency payment and token-economics to marketplace businesses. We don’t want to see ICOs over-promise and under-deliver. We also don’t want to see ICO tokens get dumped on exchanges at the earliest time possible so people can make a quick buck.

CanYa is actively building out our project and we’re here for the long-term. We want our ICO contributors to be with us all the way and to be rewarded for it.

There are two tiers to the HODL club:

HODL OGs:

CanYa_Featured-Images-HODL-OG-rocket.jpg

These are our awesome original members from the ICO and people that have entered post ICO with 10,000 CAN or more. They will be randomly air-dropped the 2 million CAN tokens over 6 months.

Anyone entering the OG HODL tier post ICO will have to wait 45 days before being an approved member. This is our ‘proof of HODL test‘. You will not be eligible for any air-drops or perks from the HODL club while waiting to be approved. If you are eligible you can register for the club via the HODL website (https://hodl.canya.com/)

HODL Tier 2

CanYa_Featured-Images-HODLers-Rocket.jpg

Tier 2 HODLers can enter the HODL club with 2,500 CAN or more. They will be air-dropped 500k CAN tokens over 6 months at random intervals.

To enter Tier 2 you will need 2,500 CAN tokens or more. Once you have 2,500 CAN tokens you can apply via the website (https://hodl.canya.com/). You will then need to wait 45 days to prove you are a true HODLer before you are entered into the club.

Notes:

  • If you have 10,000 CAN or more please apply for the HODL OG.
  • In each tier, the amount received will be proportionate to your account balance as against the total holding in that tier.
    For example, one member in the OG Tier has 10,000 CAN and another has 20,000 CAN; the 20,000 CAN member will receive twice as many tokens as the 10,000 CAN member.
  • All air dropped tokens need to stay in the registered address for you to remain in the HODL club.
  • Any HODLer can buy and add tokens to their account at any time. They just can’t remove tokens from their account.
  • If you are a substantive member of HODLer T2 and you add enough tokens (or the airdrop tips you over) to exceed the 10,000 CAN required for HODLer OG, you will go into the 45 day waiting list for OG. You will remain a substantive member of HODLer T2 for this time. One important note is that only 9999 of your CAN tokens will be counted for air drops while you are in T2 and waiting for entry to the OG tier. This is to stop someone gaming the system and skewing air-drop numbers away from the smaller HODL accounts.

What are the benefits of being in the HODL Club?

Short term:

OG HOLDers:

Over the next 6 months CanYa OG HODL club members will be air-dropped 2 million CAN tokens at random times. OG HODLers will also be air-dropped our partners tokens over this time frame (partner token air-drops will only be available for OG HODLers). You will also be part of an awesome community via our HODL website and invite only Discord channel.

OG HODLers will also get access to exclusive CanYa merchandise via raffle (this is in addition to the raffles for merchandise that is available to all HODLers).

Tier 2 HODLers:

Over the next 6 months tier 2 will be air-dropped 500,000 CAN tokens at random times. You will also be part of an awesome community via our HODL website and invite only Discord.

CanYa_Featured-Images-Airdrop-Distribution

Longer term:

Once a year, the rewards pool will air-drop a seperate amount of CAN tokens to each tier of the HODL club. This means the longer you are a member of the club, the higher your proportion of air-dropped tokens will be as people leave the club.

CanYa_Featured-Images-MERCH

We also plan to regularly raffle give-aways of CanYa merchandise such as CanYa Ledger Nano S wallets, minted CanYaCoins, clothing and more! Entry into these raffles are only available to members of the CanYa HODL Club (either OG or T2).

CAN HODL CLUB is great for the community
*Assuming the natural attrition of HODL Club members is as expected

CanYa Blockchain Conference:

All HODL club members (both OG and T2 members) will receive complimentary tickets to the annual CanYa blockchain conference (and party) to be held at a destination as voted by the HODL club members. If a conference can’t be conducted, we will purchase tickets to an alternative conference as voted by our HODLers.

CanYa_Featured-Images-Conference.jpg

So how do I join?

If you didn’t participate in the CanYaCoin ICO but want to join the CanYa HODL club, you will need to purchase 2500 CAN tokens (or 10,000 CAN tokens for OG status) from one of the exchanges that lists the CanYa token:

KuCoin (https://www.kucoin.com/#/trade.pro/CAN-ETH)

AEX  (https://www.aex.com/page/trade.html?mk_type=BTC&trade_coin_name=CAN)

xBrick (https://www.xbrick.io/trade.html?marketid=eth_can)

COSS (https://coss.io/)

Qryptos (https://www.qryptos.com/)

Cryptopia (https://www.cryptopia.co.nz/Exchange)

FatBTC (https://www.fatbtc.com/m/market/2)

CoinSpot (https://www.coinspot.com.au/buy/can)

BANCOR (https://www.bancor.network/communities/)

Many more exchanges will have CAN listed in the comings weeks, stay up to date on our CanYaCoin Announcements Telegram Channel.

After this you will need to head to the HODL club website and apply (https://hodl.canya.com/). After 45 days of successful HODLing (our Proof of HODL test) you will be added to the CanYa HODL Club. There is no need to apply if you have already been listed by our team for either status. Also, you do not actually need to apply to receive air-drops but you will need to apply so we can contact you if required, to get into our Discord and be eligible for merchandise giveaways!

CanYa HODL Club for the CAN ICO of over 5000CAN

Some examples to make things a little clearer:

Example 1: 

I bought 10,000 CAN during the ICO (or on an exchange) and I have sold 7500 of the tokens. I have kept 2500 CAN to be in the HODL club. Does that mean I am in?

Answer: No. You sold your tokens and are therefore no longer an OG HODLer. However, as you have the 2500 CAN required for the new tier you can apply to join that tier. You will just need to wait 45 days after your tokens were stationary and submit an application to be a member of the club. You will not receive any air-dropped tokens until you are in the club.

(We suggest keeping a seperate HODL registered address and a trading address to make this easier when you apply to be audited)

Example 2:

I bought 2500 CAN during the ICO does that mean I am in?

Answer: No. When the rules were made during the ICO you needed 5000 CAN. However, you do now have enough CAN to apply to be in the Tier 2 HODL Club! You will need to wait the 45 days (Proof of HODL) from when your tokens were stationary until you are in. You will not receive air drops during this time. Please submit an application.

Example 3:

I have acquired 15,000 CAN from an exchange can I join the HODL OG tier?

Answer: Yes, as stated from pre-ICO anyone with 10,000CAN or greater can join. However, you will have to wait 45 days from your tokens hitting your wallet before you are allowed in. Please submit an application for the HODLer OG Club.

Lastly…

The rules of the CanYa HODL Club are basic; HODL your CAN tokens! If you move any CAN token out, you exit the CanYa HODL Club and lose access to all of the perks and privileges that come with the HODL Club. You can always ADD more CAN to your whitelisted ETH address but you can’t move them away.

If you move CAN out of your ETH address but you still qualify (eg: greater than 2500CAN), you can always reapply for the CanYa HODL Club and wait out the 45 days ‘Proof of HODL’ test.

If this sounds good and you want to join the HODL club and all it has to offer register at hodl.canya.com once you have the required amount of tokens!

Final audit complete – tokens sent to the asset contract!

It’s burn time!

As outlined in the CanYa Whitepaper, all unsold tokens from the ICO have been sent to the CanYa Asset contract as per the below distribution:

The CanYaCoin Asset contract leads to 10% going to charity, 30% going to the CanYa Community, 30% going to CanYa and 30% being burned forever

This process has now been completed and the unsold tokens have been sent to the asset contract at 15:49 31st January (Melbourne, AEDT time).

Breakdown:

Below is a breakdown of the final count of the CAN tokens:

CanYa_Token_Split_Breakdown.jpg

The Asset Contract:

As per the whitepaper and diagram above 13.91m unsold tokens were sent to the CanYa Asset Contract of which:

  • 30% were sent to the CanYa Rewards Pool to incentivise growth for the platform
  • 30% were sent to CanYa for salaries, marketing and ops costs
  • 30% were burnt forever
  • 10% have been sent to the CanYa Charity Pool

This it now looks like this:

CanYa_Token_split_asset_Contract.jpg

Burn baby burn 🔥

CanYa_Blog_Tokens_Burn.jpg

As promised, 30% of our unsold tokens have been burnt forever. As you can see in the above token distribution this equates to 4.173m CAN being torched into the history books. This was done by sending them to the address with ‘dEaD’ at the end.

This will bring the overall total supply down to 95,827,000 CAN tokens.

Charity

The charity pool of just under 1.4m CAN tokens will be disseminated over the next few months.

CanYa_Giveth_Charity.jpg

A large portion will go to Giveth the decentralised charity founded by Griff Green who also is a founder of the White Hat Group. We will also run some community competitions so our awesome CanYa community can nominate and vote on some worthy charities!

Final words

Thank you to everyone that contributed to the CanYa ICO. Now that the token distribution and burn has been completed the future token economics will be much clearer.

The team will now continue to focus on building the amazing CanYa services platform for the world to use!

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

We are making another Tier of the HODL club!

The aim of the CanYa HODL club is to get as many long term believers of the CanYaCoin Token together in an exclusive group while also rewarding them for their loyalty with air-dropped tokens from CanYa and our partners.

We want as many people as possible in this strong community so we are adding a new tier to the HODL club.

CanYa_Featured-Images--2500-CAN

There will now be two tiers:

HODL OGs:

CanYa_Featured-Images-HODL-OG-rocket.jpg

These are our awesome original members from the ICO. They will still be air dropped the 2 million CAN tokens 

as promised. This will happen over the course of the next 6 months at random intervals. Their terms from the ICO will not be changed. As per the original HODL concept anyone that purchases more than 10,000 CAN post ICO can enter the OG club. They will still have to wait the 45 days required post ICO to be an approved member. You can enter via the HODL website (https://hodl.canya.com/) if you have the required 10,000 CAN.

HODLers (new tier)

CanYa_Featured-Images-HODLers-Rocket.jpg

This is a brand new tier for people that want to join the HODL club but didn’t get a chance to during the ICO. These new HODLers have been allocated a brand new lot of 500,000 CAN tokens to be disseminated at random over the next 6 months. To enter this new tier you will need 2500 CAN tokens. Once you have 2500 CAN tokens you can apply via the website (https://hodl.canya.com/). You will then need to wait 45 days to prove you are a true HODLer before you are entered into the club.

The amount received during the air drops will be proportional to your account balance for both tiers. For example for the coming air drop for the OG members if one member has 5000 CAN and another has 10,000 CAN the 10,000 CAN member will receive twice as many tokens as the 5000 CAN member.

All air dropped tokens also need to stay in the registered address to remain in the HODL club.

Any HODLer can buy and add tokens to their account at any time. They just can’t remove tokens from their account.

What are the benefits of being in the HODL Club?

Just a quick reminder about the CanYa HODLer Club, some of this information might be repeated from CanYa HODL Club – Update #1. Joining the CanYa HODL club is mutually beneficial for a number of reasons:

Short term:

OG HOLDers:

Over the next 6 months CanYa OG HODL club members will be air-dropped 2 million CAN tokens at random times. They will also be air-dropped our partners tokens over this time frame. You will also be part of an awesome community via our HODL website and invite only Telegram.

OG HODLers will also get exclusive CanYa merchandise.

NEW HODLers:

I participated in the ICO, why haven’t I been notified if I’m a HODLer yet?

We are finalising the token audit and distribution. We will be creating our HODL emailing list and telegram group over the next few weeks. However, if you know you are eligible for the HODL club you can let us know now by filling out this Google Form.

To all of our OG HODLers:

Your first air drop will be happening in the next few weeks. We are currently auditing everyone’s addresses to make sure members are still eligible. Over the coming few days you should receive a confirmation email. We will also get our new private group set up and announce in there further details for the air drop.

Lastly…

The rules of the CanYa HODL Club are basic; HODL your CAN tokens! If you move any CAN token out, you exit the CanYa HODL Club and lose access to all of the perks and privileges that come with the HODL Club. You can always ADD more CAN to your whitelisted ETH address but you can’t move them away.

If you have 5000 CAN tokens (or more) from the ICO then congratulations, you are automatically in the CanYa HODL club and there is no action required.

Post-ICO – HODL Club Entry

If you didn’t participate in the CanYaCoin ICO but want to join the CanYa HODL club, you will need to purchase 10 000 CAN tokens (or more) when the CAN token hits exchanges (available from 08 January 2018).

After this you will need to contact support@canya.com to have your ETH address whitelisted for the CanYa HODL Club. After 45 days of successful HODLing (our Proof of HODL test) you will be added to the CanYa HODL Club.

Specifics of the HODL Club

The rules of the CanYa HODL Club are basic; HODL your CAN tokens! If you move any CAN token out, you exit the CanYa HODL Club and lose access to all of the perks and privileges that come with the HODL Club. You can always ADD more CAN to your whitelisted ETH address but you can’t move them away.

As the CanYa HODL Club is exclusive, we will be releasing a new website dedicated to all HODL club members and an invite only Telegram group. This will happen over the next few weeks and HODL Club members will be invited directly.

If you would like to read more about the specifics, read the original CanYa HODL club blog.

Moving tokens after the ICO?

For all our current HODL club members, you can move your tokens once and once only from your CAN ICO registered ETH address. This is for people that want to move their tokens to a more secure long-term wallet.

If you want to transfer your CAN to a more secure and long-term solution (like a Ledger hardware wallet) please follow this procedure:

  1. Transfer ALL of your CAN tokens to your longterm HODL solution.
  2. Email support@canya.com with details of your old ETH address, new ETH address and your TX ID.

The blockchain provides clarity on transactions and it is simple to confirm that ALL CAN tokens were moved to the new location. Gaming the HODL Club will not work as we will individually vet all HODL Club Members.

HODL club members have until the 01 Feb 18 to move their CAN to a long-term storage solution. After that, any movement of tokens will permanently remove you from the HODL club.

What about spending CAN token in the CanYa App?

We will never punish CanYa HODL Club members for using the CAN tokens as they were intended; as a utility token for the CanYa platform. This however, is not an immediate concern because the updated CanYa platform (that integrates cryptocurrencies like the CAN token) is still under development.

We will provide more guidance for using your CAN tokens on the CanYa platform when this is closer to being released.

Changes to the HODL club

The CanYa Team have thought long and hard about how this should all work, and have decided to change some details for the benefit of the members.

We have now doubled the reward!

There will be 2 MILLION CAN tokens airdropped to our HODL club members. However, the air drops will take place at random intervals over the next 6 months.

The randomised air drops will reduce people gaming the system and only stop people joining/leaving to coincide with air drops.

We will also be air dropping our partner’s tokens to our HODL club members over this 6 month period.

What is the benefits of being in the HODL Club?

Joining the CanYa HODL club is mutually beneficial for a number of reasons:

Short term:

Over the next 6 months CanYa HODL club members will be air-dropped 2 million CAN tokens at random times. They will also be air-dropped our partners tokens over this time frame.

You will also be part of an awesome community via our HODL website and invite only Telegram.

Longer term:

Once a year, the rewards pool will air-drop an amount of CAN tokens to those in the HODL club which will again be based on their token balance. This means the longer you are a member of the club, the higher your proportion of air-dropped tokens will be as people leave the club. We will also regularly share information on our roadmap execution to our HODL Club and give them breaking news – first.

We also plan to regularly give away CanYa merchandise such as CanYa Ledger Nano S wallets, minted CanYaCoins, clothing and more! These are only available to members of the CanYa HODL Club.

CanYa Blockchain Conference:

All HODL club members will receive complimentary tickets to the annual CanYa blockchain conference (and party) to be held at a destination as voted by the HODL club members. If a conference can’t be conducted, we will purchase tickets to an alternative conference as voted by our HODLers.

Anything else?

Some members have asked about competitions run by other platforms (KuCoin for example). These initiatives are the prerogative of that individual exchange (or service) and the decision to participate is entirely up to the individual.

Be warned, if you choose to move your CAN to these platforms, you do so knowing that you are leaving the CanYa HODL Club.
