The offering is open to investments for individuals and corporate entities alike. Investors may purchase dividend-paying preferred shares of Keepp AS at EUR 2.50 per share and gain the right to dividend, estimated at around 15% per annum.

A Security Token Offering (STO) is a funding method that may involve fiat money or cryptocurrencies being transferred towards purchasing a regulated security product in the form of a cryptographic token. A security token offering can be an equity token, debt token, hybrid or derivative asset token. Either security token type of offering is regulated by the existing securities and crowdfunding laws. Each purchase is made within the framework of an offering document and related KYC/AML processes. A token offering is deemed to be a security if it promotes future increase of value of the representative token.

As any security asset, a security token can be traded or exchanged. The primary offering of a security can be done either through crowdfunding, private placement, or public prospectus offering.
