What is CanYa?

CanYa is a peer to peer market of skilled services - where users are instantly connected to service providers. Unlike most ICO's we already have a working product, high user growth and an experienced team - We launched our initial product to Australia earlier this year and now we're conducting an ICO to fund expansion into the international market as well as launching CAN token.

CAN token

CAN tokens have intrinsic value because of our trusted hedged escrow smart contract - In short CAN tokens will be in constant demand (For a longer definition check out this blog post: https://blog.canya.com.au/2017/10/01/why-participate-in-the-canya-ico-the-can-coin/) CAN will also allow the crypto community to pay for skilled services directly with cryptocurrency.

CanYa Community bounty program

We are running a community bounty program for early backers of CanYa to help spread the message and earn CAN tokens! Learn more here: https://blog.canya.com.au/2017/09/22/canyacoins-community-bounty-program/

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." That's the best & most important sentence and making it clear we're a badass ICO with 50k users is priority #1

An interesting concept that makes valid use of blockchain/cryptocurrency technology.  The white paper is one of the better structured white papers I have read to date.  The associated personnel appear to have the training and experience necessary to pull off the launch and meet the proposed timeline.

PRO: The basic structure for the ICO and downstream use of the tokens is well thought out.  The budgets supplied are detailed and the projected values appear reasonable/defendable.  I have my quibbles with how the overall number of tokens was determined and the rate of release for those tokens, however we won't know who is right until they get the site/service/tokens up and running.

CON: While this proposal is different in the sense that they say they launched the product/service first and are using the ICO to fund growth, in reality CanYa is still in beta.  Though I wish them well, this isn't the first time a peer-to-peer service bidding site has been launched.  Sites like Angie's List, Thumbtack, and Houzz have been around for several years or more, but are generally aimed at the home handyman market.  For a broader range of services, Bidology (www.bidology.com) has been around only slightly longer than CanYa and is struggling to make it past beta.  Earn.com (formerly 21.co) has been around longer as a company but only recently morphed into a fee-for-service listing platform.  Long story short, while CanYa appears to have the blockchain/cryptocurrency side of things very well covered, it remains to be seen if they can make a go of the peer-to-peer service bidding site. 

Full disclosure: This reviewer is a member of Earn.com (a fee-for-service listing site, similar to CanYa).  As of 11/13/2017, this reviewer has not participated in the CanYa token offering.

An interesting and very ambitious project.


Talking about advantages:

  • Smart-contract on GitHub
  • Experienced team
  • Nice work with media
  • Would agree with James Kirk that White paper ir well structured

However, it is difficult to realize such the hard product efficiently. Still don't know if I will fund this ICO. I suppose I'll wait for few days since ICO start to see crowdfunding progress.
