CanYa Team Active in the USA!

CanYa Has Been Out and About in the USA

Throughout January the CanYa team has been very active! We have attended 3 of the  biggest Crypto Currency conferences in the USA! We have been out and about spreading the good news about CanYa, developing new partnerships and getting some awesome feedback about our action!

CanYa Brand refresh to keep in clean and crisp

First stop: Peer Summit, Powder Mountain, Utah

After being noticed during our epic ICO, CanYa was given an exclusive invitation to Peer Summit! Peer Summit is an invite-only weekend retreat for leaders, authors, change-makers, and blockchain founders to explore and shape the business and social impact of blockchain.

On the mountain the team spent time with some of the biggest and brightest minds in cryptocurrency and further strengthened CanYa’s quality relationships in the decentralized industry. The program included discussions on important topics such as decentralised governance, equality in Blockchain companies, and how to best spread the incredible power of blockchain to the global community.

Using the CanYa roadmap, we shared our vision on how to use block chain to add value to marketplace users in the global economic ecosystem. We emphasised the importance of the CanYa community to our local ecosystem and showed how we were setting the standard for creating value for people using decentralised platforms.

Next Stop: The World Crypto Economic Forum in San Fran, California!

2018 was the inaugural World Crypto Economic Forum (WCEF) held in the blockchain heartland, San Francisco, USA. The conference was headed by crypto currency OG, Nick Szabo, so we knew the CanYa team we’re in good company.

World Cryptocurrency Economic Forum

The conference included important topics such as Decentralised Governance, Decentralised Economies, and radical value creation, which are all fundamental to CanYa’s vision of creating a completely decentralised Peer to Peer Marketplace of Services.

Whilst in San Fran the team met founders from influential blockchain companies such as Ripple, Civic and Orchid Labs. We were also fortunate enough to meet the team at Codex Protocol, who won the most innovative blockchain company during the pitch contest at the WCEF.

On top of all this CanYa was also able to find some new partners that can help accelerate the economic value to the CanYa marketplace. So Stay tuned!


BountySource

The Bountysource team were also hard at work in the San Fran Bay Area. Bountysource is now powered by CanYa and has a community of over 46,000 open source developers, able to build and support the crypto currency ecosystem!

The team was out creating valuable relationships and interacting with local silicon valley based companies. These newly formed partnerships and close-bonds will help CanYa  to remain an important and influential brand in the crypto currency community.


Last Stop: The North American Bitcoin Conference in Miami, Florida

The North American Bitcoin Conference is a huge conference dedicated to Bitcoin, Blockchain, and ICO’s. The biggest names in cryptocurrency all make the pilgrimage across the county for this event.

With fireside discussion and talks by Charlie Shrem and Brock Pierce, the event was a sell out. The conference played host to a tight-knit of quality networking groups and the CanYa team was right in the middle of it all.

The CanYa team also took the time to check in with many of CanYa’s world-class advisors who were attending the event. The team met with Taotao He (Co-Founder at Titan Digital Asset Group), TDLR Capital and our brand new advisor, Sebastian Quinn Watson.

Whats Next?

After 3 weeks in the USA, the CanYa team was feeling super fortunate to be active within a very strong and supportive cryptocurrency community. The relationships and partnerships formed in the USA has been immensely valuable to CanYa. We have been able to create the bonds by which we can spread the word about the big future that CanYa has within the cryptocurrency community.

It’s clear that CanYa has a quality brand name around the world and has received multiple invitations to upcoming conferences and private functions. With newly formed partnerships and bonds, CanYa has grown yet again, helping it power its vision into the future.

So from the team, thanks for reading, and keep in touch! We couldn’t do it without you. Please leave your comments below.

CanYa acquires majority stake in Bountysource; adds over 46,000 users

CanYa has acquired the majority stake in the online P2P software platform Bountysource and its 46,000 users

CanYa has again raised the bar for ICOs following a major acquisition of Bountysource and its passionate 46,000 open-source developer community. In a world where most ICOs (and traded cryptocurrencies) have no product or user-base, this move is unprecedented.

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.

“The CanYa team are aggressively accelerating blockchain technology adoption in a meaningful way, and we see the acquisition of Bountysource as pivotal in growing fast and introducing more communities to cryptocurrencies.”

John-Paul Thorbjornsen, CEO, CanYa

Bountysource

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 has a passionate community and throughout its 13 year old history has had a number of high profile teams including IBM, Facebook, Adobe, Ripple and Uber.

Jihan Wu and Andreas Brekken, two widely known public figures in the crypto currency community, have also engaged with the platform. The Bountysource community has been growing completely organically by over 1000 new members every six weeks, which is reflective of the high growth of the open-source movement.

The main focus will be working with the existing community to optimise the platform based on their feedback. The CanYa team are excited to see what the growth potential can be with a dedicated full time development and marketing team behind the project. 

“This is the perfect timing to double-down on open-source software. With blockchain protocols soon to power the world, there is now a huge expectation that software be open and to be contributed to by a wide variety of users. Bountysource will be the portal and a major repository of open-source software.”

John-Paul Thorbjornsen, CEO, CanYa

Some of the initial plans for Bountysource will include the integration of numerous cryptocurrency payment options including the CanYaCoin, while also refreshing the user experience, reducing fees and adding a portal for ICOs and blockchain based platforms to add bounties for smart contracts. Smart contract auditing is an ever growing space with huge growth potential. It will also create familiarity with everyone in the crypto community and the Bountysource / CanYa brand names.

As the CanYa CTO, Juan Suarez explains:

“Smart contracts need more scrutiny than other types of code – as we’ve seen in 2017 already, exploits and vulnerabilities can be hiding in plain sight. Bountysource will be the best place for blockchain teams to get their smart contracts scrutinised before being pushed live.”

True Global Ventures – Existing Shareholders

True Global Ventures is an early seed investor in Bountysource and will stay on as a shareholder. Additional parties may be involved in the near future to further support the roadmap and vision of CanYa.

Dusan Stojanovic, the Director and Founder of True Global Ventures adds his vision:

“I am delighted by having CanYa and its great team as a new partner in Bountysource. As more and more open source projects reach the market, bounties have become an important source of income to digital nomads all over the world. TGV firmly believes in the power and knowledge of the open-source community, specifically for bounties in blockchain and ICO projects. The timing is perfect and CanYa will be an excellent partner to take Bountysource to the next level of acceptance and growth”

CanYaCoin ICO

The CanYa ICO will be the first step in positioning CanYa to becoming the first ever Decentralised Autonomous Organisation for peer-to-peer services globally. By integrating a number of emerging decentralised technologies, CanYa will have no geographic or financial boundaries while offering a 20x disruption in price when compared to traditional incumbents.

Ultimately, CanYa will be powered completely by its users and their resources.
