About Bison Trails

Bison Trails is a New York City based "Infrastructure as a Service" company. We service some of the world's top custodians, exchanges, and funds that want an easy way to participate in blockchain networks securely.

Running nodes on Proof of Stake networks is very difficult, especially if you're concerned about the risk of slashing. You need strong technical skills and robust infrastructure to participate in these networks well.

We built an easy to use platform for anyone to participate in blockchains (e.g. by running Cosmos Validators, Tezos Bakers, and Libra Validators, etc.)—without having to invest time and resources into developing any of the necessary engineering, protocol, dev ops, or security competencies to do so reliably, in-house.

As experienced engineers and technologists deeply committed to secure infrastructure and building distributed systems, Bison Trails is a trusted partner of the teams building new blockchain networks and financial payment systems with global impact.
