Keep Network is a privacy layer bridging the public blockchain to private data. Through the use of “keeps” (off-chain containers) the network securely encrypts and stores private data. Off-chain keeps will be protected through the use of secure multiparty computation (sMPC).
The project proclaims it is the first production-ready sMPC system for distribution on the public Ethereum blockchain. Keep Network enables “private” smart contracts.
