Keep Network has now added support for WalletConnect. WalletConnect users can now directly interact with Keep Dashboard without the need of Metamask. WalletConnect is an open protocol made to facilitate a secure connection between mobile cryptocurrency wallets and desktop applications, such as dapps. Transactions are made through an encrypted connection by scanning a QR code, and are confirmed/signed on the mobile device. WalletConnect mobile apps do not expose your private key. As the private key never leaves the user’s mobile device, their funds are never at risk and the possibility of a hijack is very low. …

KEEP Network has launched a KEEP-Only staking pool with up to 3x reward multiplier depending on how long you stake your KEEP tokens. The longer you stake, the bigger your reward multiplier. The multiplier starts at 0.3, then grows to 1 after one month. Community members asked for KEEP-Only staking, Keep team shipped it and there are no minimums to stake — isn’t that amazing ! This pool is aimed at long term KEEP community members as well as who do not have minimum KEEP for mainnet staking to earn more KEEP to eventually become stakers.

This is the guide…


I am excited to announce that KEEP Network has launched, for a limited time only, KEEP & TBTC liquidity rewards on Uniswap for three pools!

The breakdown of weekly rewards for each pool is as follows:

* 300K KEEP to Uniswap KEEP/TBTC (~800% APY*)
* 250K KEEP to Uniswap KEEP/ETH (~800% APY*)
* 50K KEEP to Uniswap TBTC/ETH (~85% APY*)

Note: The annual percentage yield (APY) shown above are as of Jan 18th 2021–10 pm UTC. Expect the APY to drop as more people become liquidity providers (LP’s).

In this guide, I will demonstrate how to become LP on Uniswap…


KEEP team has decided to grant 1000 KEEP for any Playing for Keeps (pfk) winners from Sept and/or Oct to put their entire winnings in Uniswap as liquidity in KEEP/ETH or KEEP/TBTC pairs for atleast 1 month. You need to have equivalent worth of ETH or TBTC (in $ value) outside of your KEEP pfk winnings to provide liquidity. The key here is — you need to put your entire KEEP winnings only in one of the 2 pools on Uniswap.

Example — If your pfk winnings are 1000 KEEP, you would need to add 1000 KEEP and ~0.45 ETH…


Background

The Keep team plans to incentive participation in the first 24 months for mass adoption by subsidizing the rewards. There will be 2 earnings for node operators during stakedrop — stakedrop incentives and system earnings. Stakedrop incentives end after 24 months (started at Sept 14th, 2020) and normal system earnings continue from there on. I try to cover some key details around stakedrop incentives for first 24 months.

I would suggest you to read first about stakedrop in my other article here — https://medium.com/@chdru/keep-network-stakedrop-3e63355a18ec

In this article, I dive deeper around how stakedrop rewards work.

This is step-by-step guide/tips for minting TBTC on Mainnet.

Prerequisites:

BTC — to mint TBTC. You can use Hardware Wallet or hot wallets.
ETH — Some ETH balance(depending on gas prices, recommend 0.5 ETH balance) for transaction fees. This wallet will also receive TBTC.

It takes about 60–90 minutes for the whole process and most of that is to get 6 block BTC confirmations.

It costed me 0.175 ETH + some BTC transaction costs for minting TBTC.

Steps —

  1. Go to https://dapp.tbtc.network/ and click on “Deposit”
  2. Connect your Metamask ETH Wallet/Ledger/Trezor. You can also mint directly from Hardware wallet without using…


Background about KEEP –

The Keep Network is a privacy layer for Ethereum (more blockchains to come in future) that allows users and applications to store data privately. It creates a bridge between the public blockchain and private data. It features off-chain containers for private data called keeps (aka private enclaves) to securely encrypt and store private data offchain. The protocol takes pieces of information, breaks it up into chunks, stores these chunks with different node operators, and allows the data owner to put those chunks back together as needed. The network randomly assigns keeps to a system of participants, called signers, that help…
