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.

April Community Vote

This month, we are excited to invite our community to vote on which project you would like to donate 100,000 CAN tokens to!

In the spirit of sharing the generosity, one lucky voter will be chosen at random to win a CanYa Ledger Hard Wallet!

CanYa as an organisation believes in the pay-it-forward concept. When the CanYa platform launches, we will also be committing 10% of all fees to the charity pool (which are only 1%, compared to up to 20% fees of competitors).

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 & Giveth – Official Partnership

CanYa & Giveth – Official Partnership

Giveth – a favourite of the CanYa Team – are bringing community, transparency and accountability to charitable donations and strongly innovating in a much needed space.

Giveth is a platform founded by Griff Green that is backed by a driven and expanding team. Giveth looks to bring more legitimacy to charitable donations by using smart contracts and the Ethereum network to create accountability for charitable donations.

5% donated to charity app

With a Giveth & CanYa partnership, users can donate directly to the people who work to make a difference. Using Giveth you can follow your donation all the way though it’s journey to see exactly where it’s going, to ensure they go to places you approve. Donations can even be dependent on milestones, using Giveth’s milestone payout structure

Giveth’s vision is something the team at CanYa truly admires. With CanYa connecting consumers and providers with a 1% fee, it is only right to give people to option to pay it forward and Giveth is the perfect fit.

CanYa Integration

CanYa plans to fully integrate Giveth into the CanYa platform. This will allow both providers and customers the ability to directly contribute to a charitable campaign of their choosing, while knowing exactly how their donations are being used and the people using it. This will give an incentive for customers to choose providers that best suit their values and providers to contribute to charities as a marketing tool.

An example:

A provider could advertise that 5% of their bill goes to charity (or a user could choose to add 5% to their bill to donate to charity) transparently using Giveth.

In practice this feature will just look like another one of our payment options, meaning that users and service providers could select to be paid 50% in AUD, 30% in ETH, 15% in CAN token and have 5% donated to a chosen charity.

We believe this is a fantastic feature, as we want to put an incentive for users to pay it forward and it fits perfectly with the values of the CanYa team and wider CanYa Community.

CanYa Charity Pool

CanYa has also changed it’s Asset Contract so that 10% is allocated to the Charity Pool!

The CanYa Asset Contract escrows the CAN for disbursement to selected charities, of which Giveth is the first. This will mean our asset contract (Page 20 of CanYaCoin Whitepaper) now shows 30% of platform fees being sent to our rewards pool, 30% to CanYa and 30% of fees will be burnt forever.

This will ensure as user adoption increases Giveth will receive an increasing supply of CAN to help make the world a better place!
