ECDSA nodes are needed to run applications on the KEEP network. In cryptography, the Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (ECDSA) offers a variant of the Digital Signature Algorithm (DSA) which uses elliptic curve cryptography.
You can stake only ETH (in the first months) or both ETH and KEEP to run an ECDSA node.

Get KEEP by running an ECDSA Node
This article explains how to get KEEP by staking KEEP + ETH or ETH only in the first months of the project.
How to get KEEP — Stake ETH
Run an ECDSA node (Stakedrop launch event)
The Keep stakedrop kicked off with a live Crowdcast on June 8 2020. This presentation was driven by Matt Luongo (Keep CEO) and Sloan Thompson (devops at Keep). You can rewatch the video below and learn how to stake.
Cloud deployment - Google cloud
In this step-by-step tutorial you can learn how to launch both nodes (BEACON and ECSDA) on one vps in Google cloud. Steps:
create a VPS on Google cloud
create an ether wallet
get faucet ETH and test KEEP
create Infura account
create config files
deploy on Google using docker
Cloud deployment - Hetzner
