Keep network is decentralized proof of stake network that aims to solve public blockchain's privacy problem by allowing decentralized applications (dApps) access to private data without exposing it to the public blockchain. The Keep network features off-chain containers for private data called "keeps" that give smart contracts deep interactivity with private data without compromising transparency or auditability.
Keep is the network that enables tBTC, an open-source and permissionless bridge connecting Bitcoin to Ethereum and other chains. tBTC allows you to deposit and redeem BTC in DeFi without intermediaries.
KEEP tokens are the tokens native to the Keep network. KEEP help secure the Keep network and applications built on top (like tBTC) by providing an incentive for operators to secure keeps and ensure data remains private. KEEP can be staked to help secure the network and earn rewards.
