Bison Trails is Proud to be Part of the Libra Initiative

Jun 18 2019 By Bison Trails

We’re excited to officially announce Bison Trails will be an infrastructure provider for the Libra network. To help the network scale, we will be adding support for enterprises to easily deploy infrastructure into the Libra network. This initiative has been a collaboration many months in the making.

We’re also thrilled to be a Founding Member of the Libra Association: an independent membership organization that will consist of diverse businesses and social impact partners. As a Founding Member, we’re committed to democratizing access to Libra, a new decentralized global currency.

Bison Trails provides enterprise-grade security and infrastructure for more than twenty blockchain platforms. We will provide an easy way to launch and run your enterprise-grade Libra Blockchain infrastructure. Consistent with our approach for every blockchain network on the Bison Trails Platform, our goal is to ensure the Libra network is decentralized, secure, and well-orchestrated, with the infrastructure in place to support billions of transactions.

The Libra network is designed to be transparent by default. It represents a leap forward towards a financially inclusive world. This aligns well with our vision of democratizing access to the decentralized future. At Bison Trails, we want to see the entire blockchain ecosystem flourish. The scale of the Libra network vision is ambitious. We anticipate this launch moving the world much closer to the mass adoption of cryptocurrency, potentially triggering a global inflection point towards decentralization.

As the Libra network transitions from a pre-mainnet phase towards its mainnet, Bison Trails is building secure, globally-distributed, and transparent block production and validation infrastructure to support Founding Member enterprises and entrepreneurs around the world. We will be supporting node deployment, orchestration, and management first as the group of node operators remains small. As the network matures, we will provide enterprise-grade Libra infrastructure for any validators who wish to run nodes on the Bison Trails platform.

If you or your organization would like to run nodes on the Libra network, please contact us for specific product offerings and pricing.
