Deconomy Conference 2018

Deconomy was an incredible event, featuring panels and keynotes from leaders shaping the global economy. CanYa participated on the international stage with leading researchers, project founders, ICO projects, exchanges, and major funds.

In addition, would also played witness to a much anticipated debate between Samson Mao and Roger Ver on Bitcoin versus Bitcoin Cash, which topped the Reddit channels when Vitalik Buterin called out Craig Wright as a fraud during Q&A…see link here.

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

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.

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!
