Keep Network is an open-source blockchain protocol based on Ethereum. It is a bridge between the public blockchain and the private data stored on the off-chain. Keep Network has a native KEEP token of the same name, used for application support and staking. Node operators are engaged in KEEP stacking to ensure security and receive dividends for processing transactions, like other blockchains.
KEEP is the privacy-focused infrastructure behind tBTC, the only truly decentralized solution for Bitcoin on Ethereum. KEEPs are off-chain containers that allow contracts to manage and use private data without exposing the data itself to the public blockchain. The Keep Network was founded in 2017 by Matt Luongo and Corbin Pon, crypto industry veterans who previously founded the Bitcoin rewards app Fold.
