Now, we’re searching far and wide for the best 20 digital freelancers to join the platform as service providers and become the original, top-rated ‘CanYa Pioneers‘.

CanYa_Searching_Providers.png

We are looking for providers that excel at what they do across a range of digital service categories. They will form a core group of early adopters, be the first to see job postings at the coming launch, and set a benchmark of excellence for all future CanYa providers.

The CanYa Pioneers will:

  • Be awarded with $500USD worth of $CAN
  • Have a ‘CanYa Pioneer‘ profile badge for life
  • Be featured on CanYa news and media coverage
  • Be incentivized to bring their existing client base to the platform

What will these providers be doing?

These providers will test our on-boarding process and provide the benchmark for all future providers. They will also be encouraged to bring their existing customer base and clients onto the CanYa platform.

We envisage this process to only take a few weeks. Following this, the CanYa Alpha platform will be completely opened up for people to start finding, booking and paying for services using the $CAN token!

This means when our users log in for the first time there is actually a group of quality, vetted freelancers ready to take their work!

These early providers will also provide a benchmark and guide for all the follow on freelancer sign ups.

CanYa Now Listed On Hong Kong Exchange Gatecoin

Hong Kong | 7th of March 2018 – CanYa is very excited to announce that we are now listed on Gatecoin. Gatecoin is a top-tier Hong Kong exchange that has fiat as well as crypto pairings.

Gatecoin is an exchange that through an intuitive trading platform, enable individuals and institutions around the world to trade and invest in a wide variety of cryptocurrencies and blockchain assets.

Artboard 2.png

 

It was the first exchange to provide direct participation in token generation events (TGEs) or initial coin offerings (ICOs).

The exchange enforces strict know-your-customer (KYC) and anti-money laundering (AML) compliance policies in accordance with the Hong Kong Anti-Money Laundering Ordinance (AMLO) and global best practices.

Gatecoin’s exchange infrastructure is designed, monitored and audited by world-class security experts to prevent theft of client assets and information. The majority of blockchain asset deposits are stored in offline multi-signature hardware wallets (cold storage).

Thanks to their international payments network, their clients can fund their accounts through fiat currency bank transfers in HKD, EUR and USD.

Despite the name, Gatecoin is not a coin, and has no intention of creating or listing an eponymous cryptocurrency.

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!

Announcing a $2m CAN Token Buy Back

CanYa announces a $2m token buy back

$CAN Token opportunity

With the recent dip in the broader crypto market, the CanYa team is making most of the opportunity to purchase CAN off the open market. CAN tokens will be allocated towards scaling the CanYa and Bountysource projects. CanYa is buying up to $2M AUD worth of tokens off the market.

CanYa has made the decision to purchase CAN on the open market for the purpose of investing in CanYa projects. At today’s prices, we can best purchase and re-deploy CAN towards CanYa and Bountysource.

The CanYa Team is focused on the long-term success of the CanYaCoin through both of the use cases of CanYa and the Bountysource platforms. With Bountysource’s crypto integration and the CanYa 2.0 platform being released over the coming months, the utility of CanYaCoin is set to increase rapidly.

Development Update: Releases Coming Soon

CanYa_COMING-SOON.png

Both CanYa 2.0 and the Bountysource platforms will soon integrate CAN as a payment options for all transaction with the pending release of product version updates. 

We are slightly ahead of our scheduled development and are already approaching a public release of our ‘pre-Alpha’ CanYa web app.

Expanding Team

The CanYa and Bountysource teams have been rapidly expanding to support product development and community growth. The team has doubled in size across projects, to support development, marketing, and community management functions around the world. We have enthusiastic and motivated community managers from numerous countries approaching us daily to join team CanYa!

The Bountysource platform has a brand-new team that have just spent the last week in Malaysia to plan out the project with Bountysource’s new Project Lead, new UX/UI designers and refreshed suite of talented developers.

To demonstrate the teams faith in the CAN token, staff are opting to be rewarded in CAN tokens. The CAN token buy back is an excellent opportunity to purchase tokens to allocate towards staff resources for the coming years.

This CAN will be allocated towards team rewards across marketing, operations and development resources over the next 12 – 24 months.

The purchase of up to $2m (AUD) of $CAN from the open-market will start today, and continue to occur over the coming weeks, as dictated by the market opportunity.

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!

A party without a cake is just a meeting

Who remembers Bruce Bogtrotter from Matilda? If you don’t remember him by name, you’ll no doubt remember him as the chubby kid who successfully demolished a massive cake as ‘punishment‘ at the hand of Miss Trunchbull. Now you remember him.

So like any good day dreamer, I’ve put together a list of the most glorious cakes I could find. What? I take my birthday very seriously.

Come on a lip-smacking journey of pure decadence.
