About CanYa

CanYa will be the world’s best autonomous marketplace of services. Combining an open meritocracy with cryptocurrency payments, an exciting rewards system that returns value to power users, advanced matching, multi-lingual support and decentralised aspects, CanYa is the first true global services platform.

CanYa is a trusted app-based service that helps everyday people to outsource local and digital services to verified providers anywhere in the world. We connect people and businesses who want to get stuff done with providers who can help. CanYaCoin, which powers the CanYa platform, is the bridge between the $2tn service economy of the world and the cryptocommunity.

CanYa is the perfect platform for trustworthy support. It is curated by the CanYa Community so all of the Users and Providers are reviewed, verified and rated. We have given the local services industry a much needed shake up by facilitating accountability. Local providers will no longer need to pay ongoing Subscription Fees, Leads or even Extra Fees just to quote on a job. The app is free to download, free to setup and maintain, and free to quote on jobs. The CanYa App is available for free download on both iOS (Apple App Store) and Android (Google Play Store) smartphones.



CanYa is a peer-to-peer platform where clients choose & interact directly with the person who will be providing the service instead of a third-party. Using smart contracts, the platform will provide a trustless, secure and fast payment layer.


CanYa is suitable to a vast array of different services, from professional licensed services to casual per-hour services. CanYa currently has over 200 services and 400 different skills listed for providers, all submitted by users. CanYa includes features that make it flexible for mobile services, brick-and-mortar services, one-time jobs, recurring and group bookings.


CanYa's content is primarily user-generated & rapidly scalable. Providers add listings themselves and can request further services, skills and licences.


CanYa is a true meritocracy and is thus self-curating; providers with good reviews will see more exposure and thus more work. Good providers will see high demand and can afford to start charging higher rates.

New providers are given a 7 day exposure boost to ensure they can penetrate an established provider base. All providers are given the opportunity to continually improve their profile and behaviour to ensure maximum exposure.


CanYa is an end-to-end solution; discovery, engagement, booking, job tracking, payment, receipt issuance and review capture. CanYa also includes free media-rich messaging, free voice calling, and a free quote & invoice service.


The worst experience with hiring services is usually caused from hiring the wrong service. CanYa is using the thousands of job requests processed in the platform, together with the listed skills and descriptions, to train ML algorithms to better match job requests with the right providers, and to extract the right information from users easily.

In future, users will simply ask the platform for help, and the right providers are immediately notified. This vastly improves the experience of the platform.


CanYa have already built and implemented a media-rich messaging service native to the app, and sees thousands of messages sent between users each week. CanYa is in the early stages of building a smart chat-bot to engage users and providers. The chat service can be used to process job requests, as well as helping providers manage their schedule.
