Hong Kong, Dec. 22, 2020 – Following the announcement of Crossfire, the Chain mainnet dry-run, today enlisted Bison Trails to provide Validator node infrastructure support on the Chain. With a robust infrastructure platform that decentralizes nodes across cloud providers and regions, Bison Trails will enable Validator nodes to sign transaction blocks with low latency and high throughput on the Chain. and Bison Trails will work together to support popular protocols such as Cosmos, Tezos and Diem.

To participate in proof of stake networks like the Chain, a robust infrastructure and technical skillset is required. Bison Trails’ easy-to-use platform allows anyone to participate without requiring deep engineering, protocol, dev-ops or security knowledge, easing the ability of Validators to run nodes on the Chain as it enters its final phase before public mainnet launch.

Kris Marszalek, CEO of, said:

“Attracting Validators to help stress test our mainnet is vital to a successful rollout, and removing technical barriers in the way of running their nodes is critical. We chose to work with Bison Trails because of their skill with distributed systems and robust infrastructures. Their node clusters are built on a multi-cloud, multi-region foundation spread across four continents, and are able to withstand cascading failover events.”

Joe Lallouz, CEO of Bison Trails said:

“We’re excited to support the Chain as it uses battle-tested innovations like Tendermint consensus to build the new financial infrastructure to support’s fleet of offerings and services and advance crypto adoption worldwide.”
