Why Choose Bison Trails

Bison Trails is deeply committed to Diem's long-term success. As a founding member of the Diem Association, and a member of the Technical Steering Committee, Bison Trails is one of the few crypto-native companies with a seat at the table. Our focus is on the protocol's development and our goal is to ensure the Diem network is decentralized, secure, and well-orchestrated, so that it can scale to support billions of transactions.



  • Bison Trails has unique, in-depth experience with Diem. We launched the first independent (not from Diem Core team) validator node on the Diem testnet.
  • Our leadership on the Technical Steering Committee, driving the technical roadmap and guiding codebase development, reflects our on-going engagement and expertise with the Diem protocol and infrastructure.
  • We wrote a Guide to Running Diem (Libra) Validators to evangelize the technology and support the Diem developer ecosystem.
  • Bison Trails' nodes include geographically distributed redundancy.
  • We provide 24/7 monitoring and support.

The most important thing to achieve a goal of mass adoption is to get the project out the door and into the hands of people that need it most. Bison Trails’ role remains constant. We’re primarily focused on the technology and helping build, manage, deploy and secure the blockchain network at scale.
