Crypto.com enlists Bison Trails to provide validator node infrastructure for its Chain testnet and upcoming mainnet

By Bison Trails · Dec 21 2020

Following the announcement of Crossfire, the Crypto.com Chain mainnet dry-run, Crypto.com enlisted Bison Trails to provide validator node infrastructure support on the Crypto.com 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 Crypto.com Chain.

Crypto.com and Bison Trails will work together to support popular protocols such as Cosmos, Tezos, and Diem. Bison Trails will remove many of the technical requirements validators need to run their nodes on proof of stake networks where the risk of slashing is present.

To participate in proof of stake networks like the Crypto.com 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 Crypto.com Chain as it enters its final phase before public mainnet launch.

“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.”

Kris Marszalek, CEO of Crypto.com

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

Crossfire, The Crypto.com Chain mainnet dry run, was announced last week and will run through 15 February 2021. Participating validators will compete with each other while completing tasks; top validators will share a prize pool of USD 300,000 in CRO.
