Canya is a peer-to-peer job-finding network that is currently operating in via mobile app. Its app offered through both the Apple Store and Google Play and has approximately 7,600 users, with a limited footprint in Australia. Its web application is currently in development and the company plans to continue rolling-out services to additional Australian cities in the near term. Benefits of CanYa’s platform include the ability of its users to select a job position or employer more effectively through use of an advanced rating system, ability to use CanYa tokens (CAN) to pay for services, integration of CanYa’s wallet system with traditional banking and credit cards, as well as a hedge-contract system that will discourage malicious deals and services from targeting CanYa users. CanYa’s platform is ideal for freelancers, tradespeople, home service providers, digital service providers and self-employed professionals; otherwise known as the “gig-economy” which has experienced double digit growth annually in recent years.
PROS: App is already available and blockchain will merely increase its reliability and usefulness to CanYa users, partnerships with MADANA for blockchain data analysis and Ties.DB for decentralized database, management team with a deep bench, pertinent experience and proven success, partnership with strategic investors
CONS: Not the first in the peer-to-peer job market to launch a blockchain project (see Indorse) which may lead to decreased hype in the short-term, small geographic base, highly competitive marketplace
