CanYa Awards AidCoin 100,000CAN as Inaugural Charity Vote Winners.

CanYa Community Charity Vote

We are incredibly excited to announce that AidCoin is the inaugural winner of the community voted CanYa Community Charity Vote.

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.

CanYa as an organisation believes in the pay-it-forward concept. As per the whiteapaper, 10% of all CanYa revenue goes to our charity pool via the asset contract.

AidCoin is a tremendous project that believes in creating transparency towards donations to charitable organisations.  In some ways, it is fitting that our first donation is towards a company that is building a more transparent donating environment.

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.

Allocation of funds

The funds will be sent to AidCoin in batches over the coming four months. AidCoin has a number of  exciting partnerships being announced in the near future. We will therefore allow our CanYa HODL club members to vote where the CanYa tokens are to be sent in line with the new charity partnership announcements!

Moving Forward

CanYa will continue to donate to projects, as voted by our community, on projects that we believe are creating positive change within the blockchain ecosystem.  We encourage as many members of our community to vote so that we can best represent the interests of those that support the CanYa project.  Keep your eyes peeled for details about future Charity allocations or send us a note at support@canya.com for more information on this initiative.

CanYa relaunches Bountysource platform and outlines exciting roadmap for the future!

After two months of hard work the CanYa team are happy to announce that Bountysource has been completely refreshed as step 1 of the exciting road map 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!

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 cashout backlog, the majority of customers will now have their cashouts
  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. 7 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 47,000 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.

Final words

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 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.

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!

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!

CanYa acquires majority stake in Bountysource; adds over 46,000 users

CanYa has acquired the majority stake in the online P2P software platform Bountysource and its 46,000 users

CanYa has again raised the bar for ICOs following a major acquisition of Bountysource and its passionate 46,000 open-source developer community. In a world where most ICOs (and traded cryptocurrencies) have no product or user-base, this move is unprecedented.

Bountysource directly aligns with CanYa’s long term goals of being a peer-to-peer marketplace of services for digital nomads to work in their own time, on their own terms.

“The CanYa team are aggressively accelerating blockchain technology adoption in a meaningful way, and we see the acquisition of Bountysource as pivotal in growing fast and introducing more communities to cryptocurrencies.”

John-Paul Thorbjornsen, CEO, CanYa

Bountysource

Bountysource is the world’s first and largest peer-to-peer platform for open-source software developers to post and complete open-source bounties. Bountysource has a passionate community and throughout its 13 year old history has had a number of high profile teams including IBM, Facebook, Adobe, Ripple and Uber.

Jihan Wu and Andreas Brekken, two widely known public figures in the crypto currency community, have also engaged with the platform. The Bountysource community has been growing completely organically by over 1000 new members every six weeks, which is reflective of the high growth of the open-source movement.

CanYa & Bountysource

The main focus will be working with the existing community to optimise the platform based on their feedback. The CanYa team are excited to see what the growth potential can be with a dedicated full time development and marketing team behind the project. 

“This is the perfect timing to double-down on open-source software. With blockchain protocols soon to power the world, there is now a huge expectation that software be open and to be contributed to by a wide variety of users. Bountysource will be the portal and a major repository of open-source software.”

John-Paul Thorbjornsen, CEO, CanYa

Bountysource-mockup
A mock up of what Bountysource could look like with a UI/UX refresh

Some of the initial plans for Bountysource will include the integration of numerous cryptocurrency payment options including the CanYaCoin, while also refreshing the user experience, reducing fees and adding a portal for ICOs and blockchain based platforms to add bounties for smart contracts. Smart contract auditing is an ever growing space with huge growth potential. It will also create familiarity with everyone in the crypto community and the Bountysource / CanYa brand names.

As the CanYa CTO, Juan Suarez explains:

“Smart contracts need more scrutiny than other types of code – as we’ve seen in 2017 already, exploits and vulnerabilities can be hiding in plain sight. Bountysource will be the best place for blockchain teams to get their smart contracts scrutinised before being pushed live.”

True Global Ventures – Existing Shareholders

True Global Ventures is an early seed investor in Bountysource and will stay on as a shareholder. Additional parties may be involved in the near future to further support the roadmap and vision of CanYa.

Dusan Stojanovic, the Director and Founder of True Global Ventures adds his vision:

“I am delighted by having CanYa and its great team as a new partner in Bountysource. As more and more open source projects reach the market, bounties have become an important source of income to digital nomads all over the world. TGV firmly believes in the power and knowledge of the open-source community, specifically for bounties in blockchain and ICO projects. The timing is perfect and CanYa will be an excellent partner to take Bountysource to the next level of acceptance and growth”

CanYaCoin ICO

The CanYa ICO will be the first step in positioning CanYa to becoming the first ever Decentralised Autonomous Organisation for peer-to-peer services globally. By integrating a number of emerging decentralised technologies, CanYa will have no geographic or financial boundaries while offering a 20x disruption in price when compared to traditional incumbents.

Ultimately, CanYa will be powered completely by its users and their resources.
