Keep Network — Coverage Pools Deposit Guide


Keep Network is home of tBTC, the first fully trustless, decentralized and censorship-resistant Bitcoin peg on Ethereum. tBTC V1 system was launched in September 2020 and the protocol has been running flawlessly ever since. More than 14k BTC has flown through the protocol and has 300m TVL. All circulating tBTC is 100% backed by Bitcoin held in deposit specific wallets, of which the keys are split over a group of nodes. The system is further over-collateralized by the nodes themselves, putting down ~200% of the guarded BTC value in ETH.

  • Expanding the available passive capital that backs tBTC.
  • Simplifying the staking operation.
  • Lowering capital entry bar to become a staking node operators (signer)
  • Increasing capital efficiency of the whole system.
