Ano ang Keep Network? (KEEP)

Ang Beginner's Guide

The Keep Network is a software aiming to incentivize a global network of computers to store private information that can be deployed on public blockchains via smart contracts. 

Many decentralized applications (dapps) running on public blockchains, like Ethereum, require the use of private data (such as health records, credit scores and financial information) to operate. 

To protect individual user’s privacy, the Keep Network enables private data to be stored outside the blockchain in “keeps”, which are containers that allow smart contracts to manage and use pieces of the stored data without exposing it to the public blockchain.

In order to operate a keep, nodes must stake KEEP tokens, Keep Network’s native cryptocurrency, to be selected by the Keep Network. These nodes are awarded KEEP for successfully maintaining keeps.  

The first application built on the Keep Network is tBTC, which serves as a bridge between Bitcoin and Ethereum. Bitcoin holders deposit their BTC funds to a smart contract and receive tBTC, an Ethereum token of equivalent BTC value, used to access various dapps on the Ethereum blockchain.

Sino ang Lumikha ng Keep Network?

Keep Network was founded by Matt Luongo and Corbin Pon in 2017. They previously co-founded Fold, a bitcoin shopping app, in 2014. 

Keep Network sold $20 million worth of KEEP tokens in two rounds in private sales to investors, which include noted venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz, and noted cryptocurrency investors Polychain Capital, Fenbushi Capital and Paradigm. 


Paano gumagana ang Keep Network?

Ang pangunahing feature ng Keep Network ay ang kakayahang mag-imbak ng pribadong data, na tinatawag na secrets, sa labas ng mga sistema ng blockchain ng keeps. 

Pinapahintulutan ng Keeps ang mga blockchain-based application na makipag-ugnayan sa mga secrets nang hindi kailangang buong mailalantad ang kanilang nilalaman sa pamamagitan ng paggamit ng mga smart contract, na, kapag natugunan ang isang tukoy na pamantayan, ay maaaring magbigay ng data, mga naka-encrypt na file o pagpapatunay ng pagkakakilanlan ng mga application.

Ang mga computer, o node, na nagpapanatili ng mga keeps ay kilala bilang mga keep providers at itinalaga ang mga praksyon ng isang secret gamit ang random beacon protocol, isang advanced na pamamaraan ng cryptography para sa walang kumpiyansang randomization. 

Kapag nais ng isang user na bumili ng isang keep, nag-pu-publish sila ng isang request sa Keep Network, na, siya namang, naghahati at pinaghahalo ang kanilang mga secrets, nagpapadala ng mga pagbabahagi ng mga ito sa iba't ibang mga keep providers, at ibinabalik ang mga key sa mga userp ang ma-access ang nilalaman ng kanilang keeps kapag kinakailangan.   

Ang mga Keep providers ay dapat mag-stake ng isang tiyak na halaga ng KEEP na maaaring makuha sa protocol kung hindi man sila mapagkakatiwalaan o naging pabaya sa mga keeps. Gayunpaman, ang mga providers ang nagbibigay ng insentibo sa pamamagitan ng mga KEEP reward para sa mga serbisyo nila, kabilang ng pagbigay ng encryption, computation at storage na serbisyo.


Bakit may halaga ang KEEP?

The KEEP cryptocurrency derives its value from its ability to ensure the safekeeping of private data. 

Notably, KEEP is built into the network itself and is the only cryptocurrency that can be used for key network operations.

For example, users wishing to become providers must first acquire and stake KEEP tokens in a smart contract, and can be retrieved should they act honestly and provide services of sufficient quality. 

Staking KEEP allows users to be selected at random by the network to operate keeps, and, once selected, they must deposit more KEEP for each new keep they help operate. Providers are then compensated with additional KEEP tokens if they perform their tasks satisfactorily. 

Of note, users who wish to store data on keeps can pay for this service using either KEEP tokens or ETH, Ethereum’s native cryptocurrency. 

Like many other cryptocurrencies, the supply of KEEP tokens is limited, meaning that according to the software’s rules there will only ever be 1 billion tokens.


Bakit Kailangan Kong Gamitin ang KEEP?

The Keep Network may be appealing to developers seeking to create blockchain-based applications that require access to private data. 

Consequently, users wishing to securely store private information may also be interested in using Keep Network’s services. 

Investors may want to add KEEP to their portfolio should they believe in the future of data storage to be accessed by smart contracts for secure, private, computations on blockchains. 

Users may also be interested in KEEP if they wish to use their Bitcoin holdings to gain exposure to Ethereum’s decentralized finance (DeFi) tools.
