Keep Network Update - April 29, 2020
Earlier this week, the KEEP token contract and all custodial and staking contracts were deployed to the Ethereum mainnet.
Early next week, Keep Network staking will go live, as the Keep random beacon and token dashboard will both be deployed. Keep Network staking instructions and additional information are available in our Keep Network Staking Guide.
On Monday, May 11, tBTC will launch on mainnet using MakerDAO’s ETHBTC feed.
Starting on June 8, 2020 and running for 12 months, 2% of the KEEP supply will be distributed to KEEP stakers, and 18% of the KEEP supply will be distributed to tBTC stakers with bonded ETH. At this time, anyone will be able to become a tBTC signer in the KEEP stakedrop.
