Newsletter #4

Hello from our CEO

Again it’s been an incredibly busy period; hiring and training up the team (we now have 25 full time staff (not including community moderators) as well as getting into a weekly release cycle for our CANApps. The team has released four CANApps (decentralised applications in the CanYa ecosystem) as well as full crypto integration in Bountysource.com. We have signed on additional partners, was listed on another exchange and have participated in conferences all around the world. We ran a hackathon, participated BlockEngine’s blockchain startups in Melbourne and donated our first tranche of CAN to our charity partners.

Our team is incredibly focused to build up a decentralised ecosystem for peer-peer services and we have a lot of exciting things on the horizon; with more CANApp releases, more partners and more contributions to the community. The CanYa team is very happy to be supported by our fantastic community, and will continue to boldly build and show the world how decentralised technologies will disrupt legacy business models and return value to users.

The CanYa Alpha:

On the 20th of April 2018 the CanYa Alpha was launched to the community! Anyone in the world can now find, book and pay for digital services with our 20 Pioneer providers.

The Pioneers were a group of 20 hand chosen, top quality digital service providers from all over the world. They are available to be booked for services and will help the development team build the best possible platform for the world of digital services.

You can watch how this YouTube creator got his channel’s graphics completely re-designed by using one of our awesome pioneers:

CanApps:

We want to create an entire suite of CanYa tools that can be used by our freelancers inside of the CanYa ecosystem. This will be achieved through our awesome CANApps. These apps are also designed to help newcomers navigate through the cryptocurrency space as one of CanYa’s goals is to help spread the meaningful adoption of cryptocurrency.

This month we launched the first four CANapps:

  • CANInvoice – A free, easy to use invoice creation tool for all CanYa users
  • CANStation – An easy to use tool to help people set the correct gas fees when interacting with the Ethereum network.
  • CANShare – (previously CANTransfer) – an amazing tool that uses IPFS to allow people to transfer large files (up to 100GB) across the internet free of charge!
  • CANTrack – Simple, effective, time management software that allows records to be kept immutably on the blockchain.

There are also many more exciting CANApps in the pipeline to be released over the coming months!

Bountysource by CanYa:

This month was also a massive milestone for Bountysource with the addition of crypto bounties and smart contract auditing to the platform! This is a massive space in today’s cryptocurrency market and Bountysource aims to leverage it’s 50,000 developer community and brand power to become the go-to place for crypto bounties and smart contract audits.

The Largest bounty in Bountysource History:

Education First has revived a three-year-old Mozilla bounty that has sat dormant on Bountysource.  The mammoth bounty immediately got traction in the community and as per writing this update developers are working around the clock on solutions.

This particular bug, the Mozilla Firefox WebRTC (Web Real-Time Communications) issue which relates to the lack of support for NTLM/Kerberos authentication in Firefox.  What this means in native English is that users are unable to capture & stream audio/visual media.

As progress continues we will update the community on both the solution and the process of the developers.  Bounties of this size are rare in the open-source community, and so naturally, they create intrigue when someone starts plotting a solution.

Given that we are huge supporters of an open-source future, we are very excited about the prospect of more large companies using services such as Bountysource to solve open-source software issues.  We will continue to update the community on the progress of one of the biggest open-source bounties in the world.

Community Updates:

Charity Winners

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.

The winner of the inaugural Charity Vote was AidCoin, coincidentally a project focused on making donations more transparent by linking the contribution to a blockchain.

The AidCoin solution is very important due to the social distrust with the allocation of charitable funds in recent times.  Charities have a tremendous role to play in the improvement of the most vulnerable, but it will only be a viable method if people can be assured that their money is getting to the places and causes it was intended to go.

We are delighted to help power the AIDChain platform as it aims to make the nonprofit sector more transparent.

Binance Dexathon:

This month CanYa also hosted a Dexathon with our good friends Type Human and Consensys to solve the Binance hackathon problem of creating a truly decentralised exchange. We had a great turn out amongst the Melbourne blockchain development community and some very impressive solutions were proposed and potentially some will be implemented!

The weekend refreshments were taken care of by the legends at Young Henry’s who kept everyone sane as they worked deep into the night all weekend.

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.

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!

FOR THE CONSOLIDATED INFORMATION ON THE CANYA HODL CLUB**

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

We are making another Tier of the 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.

We want as many people as possible in this strong community so we are adding a new tier to the HODL club.

CanYa_Featured-Images--2500-CAN

There will now be two tiers:

HODL OGs:

CanYa_Featured-Images-HODL-OG-rocket.jpg

These are our awesome original members from the ICO. They will still be air dropped the 2 million CAN tokens 

as promised. This will happen over the course of the next 6 months at random intervals. Their terms from the ICO will not be changed. As per the original HODL concept anyone that purchases more than 10,000 CAN post ICO can enter the OG club. They will still have to wait the 45 days required post ICO to be an approved member. You can enter via the HODL website (https://hodl.canya.com/) if you have the required 10,000 CAN.

HODLers (new tier)

CanYa_Featured-Images-HODLers-Rocket.jpg

This is a brand new tier for people that want to join the HODL club but didn’t get a chance to during the ICO. These new HODLers have been allocated a brand new lot of 500,000 CAN tokens to be disseminated at random over the next 6 months. To enter this new tier you will need 2500 CAN tokens. Once you have 2500 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.

The amount received during the air drops will be proportional to your account balance for both tiers. For example for the coming air drop for the OG members if one member has 5000 CAN and another has 10,000 CAN the 10,000 CAN member will receive twice as many tokens as the 5000 CAN member.

All air dropped tokens also need to stay in the registered address 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.

What are the benefits of being in the HODL Club?

Just a quick reminder about the CanYa HODLer Club, some of this information might be repeated from CanYa HODL Club – Update #1. Joining the CanYa HODL club is mutually beneficial for a number of reasons:

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. They will also be air-dropped our partners tokens over this time frame. You will also be part of an awesome community via our HODL website and invite only Telegram.

OG HODLers will also get exclusive CanYa merchandise.

NEW HODLers:

Over the next 6 months the new HODL club members 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 Telegram

.

I participated in the ICO, why haven’t I been notified if I’m a HODLer yet?

We are finalising the token audit and distribution. We will be creating our HODL emailing list and telegram group over the next few weeks. However, if you know you are eligible for the HODL club you can let us know now by filling out this Google Form.

To all of our OG HODLers:

Your first air drop will be happening in the next few weeks. We are currently auditing everyone’s addresses to make sure members are still eligible. Over the coming few days you should receive a confirmation email. We will also get our new private group set up and announce in there further details for the air drop.

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 (greater than 2500CAN), you can always reapply for the CanYa HODL Club and wait out the 45 days ‘Proof of HODL’ test.

Welcome to all of our CanYa HODL club members!

After the successful conclusion of the CAN ICO we are pleased to announce there are now 550 CanYa HODL club members! Entry into this exciting club is exclusive but the prerequisites are simple:

CAN ICO – HODL Club Entry

If you have 5000 CAN tokens (or more) from the ICO then congratulations, you are automatically in the CanYa HODL club and there is no action required.

Post-ICO – HODL Club Entry

If you didn’t participate in the CanYaCoin ICO but want to join the CanYa HODL club, you will need to purchase 10 000 CAN tokens (or more) when the CAN token hits exchanges (available from 08 January 2018).

After this you will need to contact support@canya.com to have your ETH address whitelisted for the CanYa HODL Club. After 45 days of successful HODLing (our Proof of HODL test) you will be added to the CanYa HODL Club.

Specifics of the HODL Club

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.

As the CanYa HODL Club is exclusive, we will be releasing a new website dedicated to all HODL club members and an invite only Telegram group. This will happen over the next few weeks and HODL Club members will be invited directly.

If you would like to read more about the specifics, read the original CanYa HODL club blog.

Moving tokens after the ICO?

For all our current HODL club members, you can move your tokens once and once only from your CAN ICO registered ETH address. This is for people that want to move their tokens to a more secure long-term wallet.

If you want to transfer your CAN to a more secure and long-term solution (like a Ledger hardware wallet) please follow this procedure:

  1. Transfer ALL of your CAN tokens to your longterm HODL solution.
  2. Email support@canya.com with details of your old ETH address, new ETH address and your TX ID.

The blockchain provides clarity on transactions and it is simple to confirm that ALL CAN tokens were moved to the new location. Gaming the HODL Club will not work as we will individually vet all HODL Club Members.

HODL club members have until the 01 Feb 18 to move their CAN to a long-term storage solution. After that, any movement of tokens will permanently remove you from the HODL club.

What about spending CAN token in the CanYa App?

We will never punish CanYa HODL Club members for using the CAN tokens as they were intended; as a utility token for the CanYa platform. This however, is not an immediate concern because the updated CanYa platform (that integrates cryptocurrencies like the CAN token) is still under development.

CanYa_iphone_Angled_Profile

We will provide more guidance for using your CAN tokens on the CanYa platform when this is closer to being released.

Changes to the HODL club

The CanYa Team have thought long and hard about how this should all work, and have decided to change some details for the benefit of the members.

We have now doubled the reward!

CanYa_Featured-Images-Double-Reward

There will be 2 MILLION CAN tokens airdropped to our HODL club members. However, the air drops will take place at random intervals over the next 6 months.

The randomised air drops will reduce people gaming the system and only stop people joining/leaving to coincide with air drops.

We will also be air dropping our partner’s tokens to our HODL club members over this 6 month period.

What is the benefits of being in the HODL Club?

Joining the CanYa HODL club is mutually beneficial for a number of reasons:

Short term:

Over the next 6 months CanYa HODL club members will be air-dropped 2 million CAN tokens at random times. They will also be air-dropped our partners tokens over this time frame.

You will also be part of an awesome community via our HODL website and invite only Telegram.

CanYa_Featured-Images-Airdrop-Distribution

Longer term:

Once a year, the rewards pool will air-drop an amount of CAN tokens to those in the HODL club which will again be based on their token balance. 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 will also regularly share information on our roadmap execution to our HODL Club and give them breaking news – first.

We also plan to regularly give away CanYa merchandise such as CanYa Ledger Nano S wallets, minted CanYaCoins, clothing and more! These are only available to members of the CanYa HODL Club.

CanYa Blockchain Conference:

All HODL club 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

Anything else?

Some members have asked about competitions run by other platforms (KuCoin for example). These initiatives are the prerogative of that individual exchange (or service) and the decision to participate is entirely up to the individual.

Be warned, if you choose to move your CAN to these platforms, you do so knowing that you are leaving the CanYa HODL Club.

Introducing the CanYa HODL Club

The CanYa ICO is breaking from the current status quo. Our team is sick of seeing ICO after ICO over-promising and under-delivering. We are also sick of seeing ICO tokens get dumped on exchanges at the earliest time possible so people can make a quick buck. CanYa is here for the long-termand we want our ICO contributors to be with us all the way.

hodl

To incentivise this, CanYa is creating the CanYa HODL Club**. This club will encourage ICO contributors to HODL their tokens! By doing this we will be able to protect those that believed in CanYa from the beginning and share our long term vision for what CanYa can be. This has never been done before and we are very excited to introduce it to both our community and the cryptocommunity at large.

**~We are not misspelling ‘HOLD’; for a brief explanation of ‘HODL‘ refer to this infamous bitcointalk post.

How do I join the CanYa HODL club?

Every member that purchases more than 5000 CAN tokens at the ICO from their whitelisted address will automatically become part of the HODL club. If you did not participate in the ICO you will need to purchase 10,000 CAN tokens and then apply to have your address whitelisted.

Soooooo… what is the catch?

If you ever move *any* of your tokens from your registered whitelist address you exit the CanYa HODL Club. This will be an automated process.

Simple as that.

What is the benefits of being in the HODL Club?

Joining the CanYa HODL club is mutually beneficial for a number of reasons:

Short term:

Every month, for the first three months after the closure of the ICO, HODL club members will be airdropped tokens proportionally to their token balance. The first month is 1 million CAN tokens, the proceeding two months will be tokens from our awesome partners – to be announced in due course.

Longer term:

Once a year, the rewards pool will airdrop an amount of CAN tokens to those in the HODL club which will again be based on their token balance. This means the longer you are a member of the club the higher your proportion of air-dropped tokens will be if people leave and don’t re-enter the club. We will also regularly share information on our roadmap execution to our HODL Club and give them breaking news – first.

We also plan to regularly give away CanYa merchandise, such as CanYa hardware wallets, minted CanYaCoins and more, only to members of the HODL Club.

Anything else?

Nope, that’s it, nice and simple.

We are very excited to introduce the CanYa HODL club to the cryptocommunity as we believe it will change the way ICOs are run in the future. Conditions like this will ensure that early contributors are protected and rewarded for their faith in projects from the beginning and maintain the integrity of the ICO process.

So how do you get involved in the CanYaCoin ICO?

Getting involved is very simple!

  1. Head to https://CanYa.io to subscribe to our whitelist.
  2. You will receive instructions on how to participate in the CanYaCoin ICO on the 26 November 2017.
  3. Purchase at least 5000 CAN, and keep them in your whitelisted Ether address.
  4. Show your support by HODL’ing your CanYaCoin while we execute our roadmap.

CanYa is continually evolving and utilising the latest technology, like the iPhone X

For all the latest news and updates follow us here:

CanYaCoin is the ERC20 token that powers the CanYa platform for P2P services

CanYa is going to revolutionise crypto adoption

2017 – Year of the ICO

2017 has so far been the year of the ICO with over $2.2 BILLION raised amongst 149 ICOs (at the time of writing). While this is great for crypto-coin investors and speculators; so many of these coins will never reach the mainstream adoption they proffer. The team at CanYa is acutely aware of this and have created a functional platform that will truly accelerate cryptocurrencies into every day use.

CanYa is a mature services app that is available on the internet via your laptop or on your Android and Apple iPhone.
The fully functional CanYa platform

There are currently three major factors inhibiting mainstream use and adoption:

  1. Price Volatility
  2. HODLing
  3. Ease of use

CanYa will address all three of these issues with it’s CAN token.

PRICE VOLATILITY:

Any crypto currency investor knows the all too familiar emotional rollercoaster that comes with investing in tokens. Although it can be equally fun and terrifying, if you’re an investor it’s hardly sustainable; especially if you are to use these tokens for everyday goods and services. This is especially relevant for CanYa‘s service providers. A plumber or app designer may take weeks to complete a job which is long enough to have their payment worth half or less of what was originally agreed on.

The team have solved this with the ingenious ‘hedge contract‘. This contract is automatically generated and ensures an immutable value for the work performed by CanYa’s service providers.

The hedged escrow contract

CanYa provides a hedged escrow smart contract to ensure that both the user and provider get what they paid for

This is a fundamental shift for crypto currency platforms. There is now no risk of price fluctuation for customers or service providers. The CAN token now gives all the benefits of a crypto token (instant payment, security, no fees) while avoiding one of the most fundamental flaws; volatility!

#HODL

If you haven’t read this now famous and hilarious post from GameKyuubi back in 2013 then you probably should (BTW if he did HODL he’s probably rich now). Although this phenomenon can’t be attributed solely to him it surmises a market psychology that further inhibits mainstream adoption of crypto currencies.

HODLers are so worried about missing out on potential gains that they are unwilling to spend their tokens. Tokens are now more instruments of speculation than utility. William Mougayer wrote about this HODL phenomenon recently.

CanYa will also alleviate this issue. Although the team is confident that the CAN token will be in constant demand though both our hedged escrow contract and our asset contract, More detail. The platform also encourages the use of it’s tokens and other cryptocurrencies in general. It does this through a number of measures; CanYa providers pay CAN tokens to promote their profile and also pay 1% on all transactions. These tokens go to the asset contract. The asset contract then disseminates these tokens to the CanYa platform and users via:

  • Referral rewards
  • Welcome bonuses
  • Transaction cash backs
  • Referral based commission payments

You can read more about each of these in the CanYaCoin whitepaper. However, they all reward users with CAN tokens through activity in the app. This reduces the incentive to HODL over using the tokens for what they were meant for; paying for the best service providers to complete any job, anywhere in the world.

Ease of Use

Unfortunately signs such as the one above are few and far between. For the average person it is much harder to pay for everyday goods and services with crypto currency than with traditional fiat. CanYa (with the help of the CanYaCoin) will change this!

CanYa will easily convert cryptocurrencies to the CAN token in-app. CAN tokens can then be used to pay for (or get paid for) any service, anywhere in the world. The CanYa team are also currently in talks with a number of future partners such that these tokens can then be used to pay for goods or services outside of those provided in CanYa (follow our partnership announcements on the CanYaCoin Telegram Channel).

CanYa is powered by the CanYaCoin and they are bridging the gap between the crypto-community and the general public
CanYaCoin makes cryptocurrency much more accessible to the general public

Think a crypto-based VISA credit card that is synced to your CanYa account. You can be paid for your services instantly and then spend those CAN tokens on anything you may choose to without ever having to convert or exchange any currencies.

This can all be done on a free to download app that has all of the following features:

  • Reviewed, information rich provider profiles
  • Multi-user job bookings
  • Easy to use UI/UX
  • Media rich in-app messaging
  • In-app calling
  • Free and instant quoting

To download CanYa for free today, just head to you app store and search “CanYa”.

TL;DR

By addressing these three key crypto currency shortfalls CanYa is a game changer for mass crypto adoption. To find out more about CanYa and it’s upcoming ICO head to https://canya.io/Contribute to the CanYa Live ICO: https://sale.canya.io
