Welcome to the CanWork April 2023 Update.
This month we discuss growth, development progress, and our community competitions.
State of Canwork
Landing page tweaks & bug-finding payouts
Last month, we finally rolled out the new landing page. Since then, we’ve responded to several minor bugs and tweaks. Thanks to everyone who tested all the links and layouts on different devices. We paid out over $100 in rewards for bug submissions. Let us know if you find any more!
Smart-Contract V3: Increased Trust
We authored some changes to the escrow smart contract predominantly to reduce admin ability & increase trust.
We also updated automated test coverage and are in the process of a 3rd-party audit before deployment
Significant progress has been made to upgrade packages & dependencies. This was quite a task that included hundreds of errors across 1000+ lines of error log outputs. We can see the light at the end of this tunnel which will keep the CanWork app updated & maintainable.
Fixed the email notifications Som emails regarding unread messages on CanWork were not being delivered. We have now fixed the system and users are being notified correctly. Unfortunately, the system processed a backlog of unsent emails and some users might have received many emails at once. We apologise for spamming your inbox
Development - What’s next?
Continue the framework upgrades
Deploy the new version of the CanWork escrow
Update OpenGraph and image unfurls for public jobs and user profile sharing
Begin payment selection upgrades
Improve the admin dashboard
CanWork Community Ideas Program
We continue to look for new ways to grow awareness and users for the CanWork platform. To accelerate this, April saw us launch the CanWork Community Ideas Program.
This is a fun and engaging way for us to harness the power of our community to grow the platform. After all, most of our community are freelancers themselves!
What is the Community Ideas Campaign?
Maybe it’s a promotion, marketing campaign, incentive, or creative growth idea.
The CanWork core team will shortlist ideas for a community vote.
We will implement the winning idea and use exclusive CanWork freelancer talent & labour.
The top two ideas and a random participant will win BUSD rewards.
We will award the following:
Winning Idea: $300
The winning idea is the one that the CanWork core team & community select for actual implementation.
Runner up: $150
Random submission: $50
Implementation of the chosen ideas
We will develop an action plan to implement voted ideas, and share progress updates with the community.
We will use the CanWork job board to hire all related talent and labour for the implementation.
