Today we are extremely excited to announce we partnered with some of the world’s leading investors and companies to accelerate our mission of strengthening the blockchain ecosystem, providing unparalleled infrastructure across multiple blockchains, and enabling the pioneers of tomorrow.
When we started building Bison Trails, we wanted to bring transparency and ease to entrepreneurs bold enough to build in a decentralized ecosystem, investors wise enough to back a nascent market, and enterprises courageous enough to commit to a technological inevitability like blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Bison Trails has become the easiest way to run blockchain infrastructure. Trusted by the world’s best protocols, companies, and builders in the space, Bison Trails helps launch and manage secure, highly-available, and geographically distributed node clusters on multiple blockchains.
We’re entering a new phase in blockchain development and participation, one marked not by pure asset speculation, but by robust, usable, and scalable networks where stakers, voters, validators, investors, and many others actually participate in the growth of these communities. We believe we’re still at the very beginnings of this massive shift in how people participate in blockchain networks, and we plan to make blockchain participation as accessible, safe, and scalable as possible.
This year alone, our enterprise-grade platform helped dozens of blockchain founders and protocol teams to test, launch, and scale their blockchains while providing their communities easy pathways to participate and build safely. Digital asset holders rely on Bison Trails to manage the infrastructure, security, and devops traditionally needed to participate in staking, voting, and securing a blockchain. With our premium platform, companies looking to run private nodes to access a blockchain, never have to worry about whether their services are secure or available. And we have many exciting product announcements to come in 2020!
While we are making large strides towards our vision of democratizing access to the decentralized future, we know we still have plenty of work to do. To realize this vision, we’re excited to announce we’ve partnered with Blockchain Capital leading a $25.5MM Series A investment in Bison Trails, with participation from Kleiner Perkins and Coinbase Ventures, joined by Collaborative Fund, A.Capital, Coven, and Sound Ventures, as well as our early investors Initialized, Accomplice, Galaxy Digital and Notation.
Our incredible team of engineers and protocol experts, spends hundreds of hours each week working closely with protocol creators around the world, to ensure this new wave of pioneers focuses their energy on their core protocols, not the infrastructure. This funding will enable Bison Trails to continue to scale our team and technology platform to meet the needs of the most promising protocols in the blockchain space, while better positioning our team to support additional innovative protocols, and their stakeholders, as they move from testnet to mainnet.
We are deeply committed to providing support for the next generation of decentralized services, democratizing access to this emerging technology, and bolstering impactful open-source initiatives, while working diligently to build the technical foundation that powers Web 3.0.
We are humbled by the support from the blockchain community and we’re eagerly looking forward to building pathways to a decentralized future, together. Learn more about opportunities to join the herd in our New York City office and build pathways to a decentralized future, together. We’re hiring!
Bison Trails is an Infrastructure-as-a-Service company, based in New York City, specifically focused on blockchain participation. We’ve built a platform for anyone who wants to participate in new chains effortlessly (e.g. by running Cosmos Validators, Tezos Bakers, and Libra Validators, etc.)—without having to invest time and resources into developing any of the engineering, protocol, dev ops, or security competencies in-house. Our goal is for the entire blockchain ecosystem to flourish by providing robust infrastructure for the pioneers of tomorrow.
