CanYa Platform Update #1

We now have our 20 CanYa Pioneers!

Our Pioneers are crucial to the launch of the CanYa platform. We rely upon these world-class digital service providers to establish the standard for profiles in CanYa. Out of hundreds of applications, we have interviewed, vetted and selected 20 of the best freelancers in the world! To meet them all, head to the CanYa Telegram Announcements Channel and you will see a short introduction about each of them.

Our CanYa Pioneers cover the following categories:

  • Writer: 3
  • Photographer: 1
  • Developers: 9
  • Advertising Strategists: 1
  • Art-director: 2
  • UX Designers: 2
  • Data analyst: 1
  • Biologist: 1

Progress on the CanYa Platform?

uPort Error:

Eleven of the twenty Pioneers have set up their profiles. The remaining nine pioneers have been delayed in setting up their profiles due to a universal uPort error. CanYa utilises uPort as a third-party log-in service so that we (or third parties like Google / Facebook) cannot sell or use your data. Your personal data is owned by you and kept securely on the blockchain.

CanYa_Blog_Content_self-sovereign.png

Our focus on self-sovereign identity (user owned and controlled identity) has been strengthened by the recent sentiments towards Facebook and Google with regards to their data issues. Decentralised self-sovereign identity is also in line with our long-term plan of building a completely decentralised ecosystem.

Note: We recommend everyone downloads uPort to their smartphone and establishes a profile in preparation for signing up to CanYa!

Is the error fixed?

Yes; the CanYa Dev Team worked tirelessly with the dev team at uPort and the problem has now been resolved!

CanYa_uport_bug.png

The CanYa team also worked around the clock to build a native log-in process to act as a back-up for future. The Dev team will also explore other third-party, secure, log-in options for more redundancy in the future. This problem has shown us the importance of ensuring a seamless user-journey and because of this we are also going to build our own native blockchain identity tool as part of our suite of ‘CanYa Apps’ called CanID (more on CanYa Apps later).

Unfortunately the uPort bug has meant that the pioneer on-boarding and set up has been affected such that it has pushed back our timeline by at least a week. More on how we will rectify this below.

You can view the uPort bug here on GitHub: https://github.com/uport-project/uport-connect/issues/114

The CanYa DAO

The team have quietly been hard-at-work and have already released the first version of the CanYa DAO (Decentralised Autonomous Organisation)! This level of decentralisation was not due until the end of this year but the team decided to accelerate the focus to ensure it’s integration is paramount from the very beginning.

CanYa alpha platform the first working DAO
The CanYa DAO

Above is a screenshot of the CanYa DAO. It will be slowly rolled out to the moderators and then the wider community to start handling aspects of the CanYa platform and move CanYa to a fully decentralised entity.

Those helping with the DAO will be economically incentivised with $CAN. We will take our time with this process to ensure an adequate solution is found for platform users. This is brand new territory for any business and CanYa is leading the way!

So when does the community get to see the platform?!

We understand that the community feel the Pioneer / Alpha launch iteration was not communicated well by the team. Building a brand new platform in the spotlight is a unique position to be in but it is the reality for any ICO project.

We endeavour to communicate all developments as early as possible! We currently have our development team working on an updated, thoroughly detailed and live roadmap that we will feature on our website for development of the CanYa Platform over the next 6 months.

CanYa_Blog_Content_building.png

Our updated roadmap will go a long way to strengthening the mutual-trust we have with our community. We cannot promise that there will not be delays (as we have just experienced with uPort) but we can promise to be transparent about these with the community.

As stated earlier, the uPort issue has put us behind schedule from where we would like to be. However, we want to bring the CanYa Community on this journey with us so the CanYa Alpha platform will be opened to all $CAN supporters from Friday 20th April!

To view the platform you will need 100 CAN in a MetaMask account while using the platform. Anyone that meets this caveat will be able to view, book and pay our CanYa Pioneers.

I’m a provider when can I sign up?

The first 100 providers following our 20 CanYa Pioneers will still be curated and controlled via the CanYa DAO. We already have hundreds of applicants and we start on boarding them this week.

To register to become a provider you can apply on the website.

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 generates longer and more frequent engagement for all of our users. At this stage we are aiming to release a new CanYa App every month!

CANInvoice

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

When will it be ready?

Ready now!

CanYa_CanInvoice_Illustration.png

CanShare

An app that allows large file transfers using decentralised technology. Want to send the 80GB HD video you just created for your client? Don’t worry about DropBoxes or Shared Drives, just send in app via CanShare.

When will it be ready?

Ready now!

CanYa_tools_CanShare-Blog.png

CanTrack

A crisp and easy to use job / task tracker to help you with your project management.

When will it be ready?

Ready now!

CanYa_tools_banners_CanTrack.png

CANSend

An easy to use tool for anyone to run their own air drops! This is a great way to bring more of the crypto world under the CanYa umbrella and bring another use-case for the $CAN token.

When will it be ready?

Ready now!

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.

When will it be ready?

Ready soon. We will launch our first CanYa 25 competition in June 2018!

Conclusion

CanYa is breaking new ground every day. We are at the leading edge of what is possible with decentralised technology. We are incredibly excited to share the CanYa Alpha with all of our community this Friday. Together we can truly build something great.

The CanYa team will also release a high fidelity, live, dev roadmap so our community is better informed in the future.

We are looking forward to changing the world together!

CanYaCoin Charity Pool

CanYa is pleased to announce our first round of community votes to help allocate the charity pool promised in our whitepaper.

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.  

We have already committed an allocation of tokens to the incredible Giveth not-for-profit, which is enabling transparency in charitable donations using blockchain technology.

The shortlisted causes:

Lykke Tree Coin

Blockchain startup Lykke has partnered with World International Foundation (WIF) to launch the world’s first mangrove backed cryptocurrency.

According to WIF founder Dr. Arne Fjortoft, “the urgent need to restore at least 20% of the world’s mangrove forests was among the key issues of the June 2016 United Nations Ocean Conference. Mangroves are nature’s most promising solution to combatting the impacts of sea level rise, maintaining healthy shorelines and water quality for coral reefs and seagrass, as well as other valuable ecosystem services.”

AidCoin

AidCoin is an Ethereum token that aims to become the preferred method to donate transparently through the Ethereum blockchain.  This means that all monies donated will be trackable through an open-source blockchain.  The AID token will power AIDChain, a platform that provides an ecosystem of services through an easy-to-use interface, connecting the non-profit community while allowing full transparency and traceability of donations.

Sponsorship towards local, community led Educational Meet-ups and Developer Workshops (in Australia) 

CanYa is connected with and committed to supporting a network of local community leaders that self-organise around a mission to further the decentralised web eco-system in Australia, and globally.  This is done through community meet-ups, developer workshops, and major hack-a-thons, connecting university students with the space, and hosting working groups around interdisciplinary topics.

Ethereum foundation

The Ethereum Foundation’s mission is to promote and support the Ethereum platform and base layer research, development and education. This will bring decentralised protocols and tools to the world that empower developers to produce next-generation decentralised applications and together build a more globally accessible, freer and more trustworthy Internet.

Voting

Voting will occur throughout April, with the winner announced at the end of the month.

Newsletter #3

Hello from our CEO

“We are now well and truly into 2018 – the year that blockchain teams need to deliver a product to their users. Firstly because they promised their token-holders they would do that, and secondly because collectively we need to “cross the chasm” and accelerate the mainstream adoption of cryptocurrencies.

At CanYa we are laser-focused on product delivery and we are very close to releasing our Alpha CanYa web-app on main-net. The CanYa dev team, led by our superstar CTO, Juan, have built an incredibly innovative platform that pulls together cutting edge technology in a brilliant way.

We strongly believe we have the most advanced decentralised applications ever built – already. We will continue to work on this in order to realise our vision. The team are also building a host of free online tools that we will release to the wider community to drive value to our ecosystem, as well as the wider crypto ecosystem.”

JP Thor – CanYa CEO

HODL club has had its first successful Airdrop!

newsletter3_hodl

355,000 CAN tokens have been sent to our most loyal supporters; the CanYa HODLers.

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.

There are two tiers to the HODL club:

HODL OGs:

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 OG for CanYaCoin long term HODLers

HODL Tier 2

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.

CanYaCoin HODL Club - Tier Two HODLers

Notes:

  • Specifics of the CanYa HODL Club can be found at this blog.

We are now listed on Lykke, Gatecoin and Coinspot! 

On the back of a terrific few weeks of announcements, the number of exchanges that now list our token is increasing rapidly.  Exposure to prominent exchanges is a critical part of a tokens development and trading volume. This is why we are very excited to announce that we are now listed on Lykke, Gatecoin and Australia’s own Coinspot!

Artboard 3@2x.png

This is a tremendous result for CanYa, and highlights the amount of work that our executive team is doing behind the scenes to drive the platform forward.  Many would not realise that the process of being added to an exchange can be quite arduous, and with good reason.  In order to ensure the integrity of the exchanges, tokens must be vetted in fine-detail to ensure that they meet the standards expected in metrics such as KYC and company structure.

CanYa, of course, is compliant with the standards of every exchange in the world.  However, this does not take-away from the due-diligence and work required to broker these arrangements.

Needless to say, we are chuffed with the progress and hope to announce more exchange partnerships in the coming weeks and months.

Asia-Pacific Meeting

CanYa was also represented by JP Asia-Pacific Ethereum Meet-up which took place in Thailand. The trip itself was a whirlwind; both of the ideas presented and the 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.

newsletter3_thailand.png
The keynote speech was of course done by Vitalik, and he spoke about how some of the crypto-economic ideas used to build blockchains, could also be applied to make the internet “less broken.”

Also present were:

  • Managing Director of OmiseGo Vansa Chatikavanij
  • OMG Plasma Researcher David Knott
  • Head of Research at AlphaShisen Luo
  • Core Developer of MakerDAO, Niklas Kungel; and,
  • a host of other blockchain luminaries.

The meet-up was designed to promote technology exchange between Ethereum developers and community members, as well as an opportunity to get to know more about local Ethereum-based projects.

This was a great opportunity to hear about the progress of other projects in our corner of the world, but also a great platform for CanYa to update the community on the great strides we are making; specifically with the purchase of BountysourceuPort secure sign-in’s, the CanYa bot, and our platform search engine.

BountySource Update

After two months of hard work the CanYa team were happy to announce that Bountysource has been completely refreshed as step 1 of the exciting roadmap ahead.  Along with the UI/UX refresh, a number of fundamental behind the scenes issues have been improved and introduced to truly reclaim the crown as the biggest and best source for posting and completing coding bounties!

newsletter3_bountysource.png.png

The core functionality of the platform has remained the same.  However, huge efforts have been made to improve the user experience of the website by doing the following:

  1. Actively clearing the cash-out backlog, the majority of customers will now have their cash-outs
  2. Future PayPal cashouts should be processed within 48hrs
  3. Existing support tickets cleared and a commitment in place to answer future tickets within 1 business day
  4. 5 full time developers put on the team to reinvigorate platform and start executing new road map.
  5. New & modern UI/UX

With clients such as IBM, Facebook and Ripple already using the platform, Bountysource has huge industry backing and immense potential.  Moving forward, it is hoped that the changes made both re-engage the 48,000 registered users as well as offering more flexibility to complete bounties for companies and programmers alike.

You can follow the progress of our updates in real-time on the Bountysource github:  https://github.com/bountysource/core/issues.

So what’s next for Bountysource?

The CanYa team have huge plans ahead for Bountysource. Phase 1 is now complete and the team are now well and truly working in Phase 2. Our crypto portal is also underway which we are particularly excited about!

Phase 1:

  • Stand up dev & customer support team
  • Fix outstanding critical bugs and support ticket backlog
  • Refresh the platform UI/UX

Phase 2:

  • Fix remaining issues
  • Begin design and foundation work on cryptocurrency portal (Crypto bounties and smart contracting audits etc)
  • Integrate $CAN as a payment option
  • ‘Bountysource teams’ integration (collaborative bounty hunters)
  • Personalised profiles that can be cross ported to CanYa

Phase 3 & beyond:

  • Release crypto portal – crypto project bounties, smart contract auditing and much more (powered by the $CAN token) – Huge opportunity!
  • ‘Bountysource hire’ – ability to hire developers for short term contracts (ideal for development sprints)
  • Security bounties added

CanYa and CanYaCoin powering the platform that lets your work remotely like a digital nomad

Final words on the Bountysource Reskin

Bountysource has an incredibly strong brand name throughout the open source and development community. This identity and vision allowed it to grow the user-base to 48,000 passionate developers. CanYa is pushing this vision forward and adding a suite of new features to grow the platform’s use case into the future.

The move into crypto based bounties and audits is particularly exciting. This will make Bountysource a true cornerstone of the blockchain & ICO development process. This side of Bountysource will also be powered by the $CAN token to further its use case, real world application and volume. These are exciting times for Bountysource and CanYa and we are looking forward to having you all along for the journey!

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.

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.

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.

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!
