A decentralized exchange for megabytes

Buy, sell and use your mobile internet peer to peer,
controlled by no one

Pre-ICO start: 1st May, 2018

The Decentralized Exchange for Megabytes provides a complete ecosystem to buy, sell and exchange megabytes.

Currently, the valuable traffic you purchase is at the mercy of large corporations and cannot be traded.

In the Exchange network, it’s yours to use and sell as you wish; your megabytes travel through a decentralized peer-to-peer network controlled by no one and incentivized by the KEEP token.

Let’s consider you purchase 10Gb/month from your carrier. De-facto, you use one third of it. On the other hand, there is an inbound traveler who just landed in your country.

The Exchange provides a single interface for real-time traffic exchange and payment, making your megabytes tradable using the KEEP token.

Bearing in mind that the decentralized network is controlled by no one, the price for every megabyte is set solely by supply and demand - forming truly fair megabyte economy.

Keepgo has partnered with leading communication service providers

WHY KEEP TOKEN IS UNIQUE?

The Decentralized Exchnage for Megabytes is a new business model to trade cellular services. This is a new concept, where anybody can trade data with anybody, peer-to-peer (or peer-to-machine). Prices and technology controlled by no one, fully ruled by supply and demand.

This model will co-exist with the current eco-system and current telecom models, there is no collusion or cannibalization involved. In the same way as MNO co-exists these days with MVNO; or cash co-exists with credit cards.

Technology wise, the whole SW (end user mobile app, match node, smart contracts) will be fully open-source and available for further modifications. The application can be adopted by any HW manufacturer, telecom and IT-related business. In addition, The Exchange will support multiple blockchains, therefore any big and small players can develop any functionality and trade cellular services.

All the mentioned open source SW technology and multi-blockchain smartcontracts data base will be supported and maintained by Open Source Foundation (The KEEP Foundation). Tokens issued by this Foundation will grant access to this “controlled-by-no one” technology (trading license).

Blockchain Agnostic
The marketplace supports multiple blockchain technologies, existing and to be released. We will use IOTA by default.
Hardware Independent
We will immediately offer the KeepgoFi hotspot, but will also provide app developers and smartphone/gadget manufacturers with REST APIs to enable them to sell and purchase using any mobile and stationary device.
Open Source Software
Define your own seller/buyer matching parameters, set different commission and much more using our open source marketplace code. Powered by Open Source Foundation and completely free of charge.
Flexible monetization schemes
Tokens can be used to earn money by selling data, trading on the stock exchange or leasing to occasional sellers. The more traffic you sell, the more quota you have with every token.

FAQ

Why cellular data cannot be traded on standard marketplaces, like eBay or Amazon?

 Standard marketplaces are designed to support the trading of physical merchandise and do not have the required technological infrastructure to support the trade of cellular services.

Will Network Operators allow the resell of data bundles purchased by end users?

There is no single legal standard regarding resell of cellular services, but there are more and more class action lawsuits demanding cellular providers allow the full use of purchased services. We believe that KeepNET model should co-exist with the current eco-system and current telecom models, there is no collision or cannibalization here. Same as MNO coexists these days with MVNO; or cash co-exists with credit cards.

Is any special equipment required to trade data?

Yes, data can be purchased only with devices that support SIM-less technologies, like KeepgoFi Hotspot. Data can be sold by any device with the KeepNET app installed (Android version) or using portable SIM slots.

Will I be able to use my phone while trading the data?

You will be able to use your phone as usually while the device is connected to a WiFi network and with the Exchange app up and running.

Can I also trade texts and voice bundles over the Exchange?

No, at the present time The Exchange doesn’t support the trade of SMS messages and voice minutes

Is trading limited to mobile data only, or can WiFi traffic also be traded?

Data exchange is not limited to mobile data, one can trade their landline Wi-Fi bundle as well.

How can Exchange guarantee that I will get the exact amount of data I have paid for?

The payment for megabytes is performed via distributed blockchain network in real time. You pay only for what you get

Why blockchain is essential for data exchange?

Without the blockchain technology, guaranteed real time micro-payment for usage is impossible.

Due to blockchain technology specifics, operator SIM identifier can be replaced by smart contract.

How can The Exchange guarantee coverage everywhere I travel?

Ever since Keepgo was established in 2009 our primary activity has been to negotiate favorable reselling agreements. We have secured many such agreements and guarantee coverage in countries and destinations where no sellers are available. Keepgo will provide its vast agreements portfolio for The KEEP Foundation needs.

How KEEP tokens will be used?

Keep token is a license to trade data on the exchange. It grants access to the technology. In addition to trade and direct use, we assume that companies like Keepgo will buy licenses and lease them to occasional seller.

Who will run blockchain nodes?

We do not develop our own blockchain. We are blockchain agnostic. We will only create and support the technology and smart contracts that will enable the exchange of data.
