CanYa Alpha is ready!

The search for our CanYa Pioneers begins!

The CanYa platform is now at Alpha stage and ready to be launched globally as per the roadmap. This is following a rigorous testing process from the CanYa team and select members of the CanYa community.

Now, we’re searching far and wide for the best 20 digital freelancers to join the platform as service providers and become the original, top-rated ‘CanYa Pioneers‘.

We are looking for providers that excel at what they do across a range of digital service categories. They will form a core group of early adopters, be the first to see job postings at the coming launch, and set a benchmark of excellence for all future CanYa providers.

The CanYa Pioneers will:

  • Be awarded with $500USD worth of $CAN
  • Have a ‘CanYa Pioneer‘ profile badge for life
  • Be featured on CanYa news and media coverage
  • Be incentivized to bring their existing client base to the platform
  • and much more!

What will these providers be doing?

These providers will test our on-boarding process and provide the benchmark for all future providers. They will also be encouraged to bring their existing customer base and clients onto the CanYa platform.

We envisage this process to only take a few weeks. Following this, the CanYa Alpha platform will be completely opened up for people to start finding, booking and paying for services using the $CAN token!

With CanYa you can use CanYaCoin to Find, Hire, Pay and Review digital nomads all over the world

So providers first then everyone else?

CanYa is a two-sided marketplace. The most important first step is to get a critical mass of quality digital service providers across the globe that can be booked and paid for with $CAN! This means when our users log in for the first time there is actually a group of quality, vetted freelancers ready to take their work!

These early providers will also provide a benchmark and guide for all the follow on freelancer sign ups.

What’s next for CanYa?

The Alpha is now ready to be used. The Beta will follow shortly and finally the CanYa 2.0 platform will be released, as per the roadmap, by July 2018.

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 existing Bountysource platform

“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

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.

Melbourne; the wait is almost over!

CanYa launching in Melbourne very soon


CanYa; Australia’s best and most convenient way to hire local services
 is soon to be launching in our big city; Melbourne! The free to download app allows you to book in a service provider for just about any job or task you may need to be done.

canya_phones-displaying
Straight off the back other another successful launch (Adelaide), CanYa is coming to Melbourne!

It is quick and easy to use. No more endless searching for the best plasterer, gardener, babysitter and/or removalist because CanYa has it all under one app, and it’s launching in Melbourne!CanYa Phase - Blue

First of all, let me start off by expressing my undying love for Melbourne. We embrace innovation, excel in business and we’re home to the sporting capital of Australia.  I’ve lived here for the past year or so but I was originally an Adelaide boy.  The city is vibrant and full of wondrous culture and most importantly it presents massive opportunity for us hard workers.

Melbourne represents an opportunity for everyone!

Is it just me or do we Melbourne Hustlers seem to be working a lot harder for a lot longer?!

The seemingly endless search

I hate it when a job needs to be done and you are stuck without an easy option. The endless task begins of googling for the best service providers around.  You type in “the best cleaner” or the “cheapest plumber” and the search results come up with hundreds of different companies and services. None of these are peer-reviewed and they are all just competing against one another to get your attention.

My partner in crime is admittedly busier and a harder working than me so her time is even more limited (do not tell her I said that).  “I wonder what is the best and most convenient service around me to get this job done”. So 30 minutes has gone and I seem to be more confused. This was the struggle, until now.

So undoubtedly we are living through the biggest tech age of all time; surely there must be an app that does it all?

Thankfully there is an app that does it all, CanYa! CanYa is a one stop shop that allows you to Find, Book, Pay and Review local service providers.

The app is free to download and available on Android and iOS!

cropped-828_315_new1-01.jpg

I must admit, the CanYa user experience is pretty darn cool! You have all these jobs around the house you need to get done but of course they all take TIME.

The reason why CanYa is so unique is you can get a CanYa provider to do ALL of these jobs for you. You can chat to your provider on CanYa chat (messaging or calling) before they even do the job. Once you’re happy you have the right provider, you can book your local service provider!

james_handyman_servicesThe most amazing part out all this is you can find a CanYa provider for practically any job that you want done. My personal favourite is the CanYa puppy walkers!
