Since our last monthly update, the herd has been very busy. Read on for the latest on Bison Trails and our support of eth2, the launch of QT Archival and Diem QT, and more!
– Mark Forscher / Head of Brand & Design
Eth2 launched without issues on Tuesday, December 1st, 2020 at 12:00:23 UTC. Congratulations to the entire Ethereum community on a successful genesis! In Protocol Specialist Viktor Bunin’s latest eth2 update, he notes that since launch “eth2 is continuing to gain momentum as almost 1.3m ETH has now been deposited (more than 1% of all ETH).”
Some of Bison Trails’ eth2 highlights from a busy month:
Libra rebranded as Diem, and we announced support for Diem QT. Custodians, wallets, and those registered as a Designated Dealer or VASP on the Diem network can start building today with Diem QT. Read more in Cointelegraph.
We also announced “QT Archival: ‘When a Full Node is Not Enough’” with support for Algorand, Celo, Cosmos, EOS, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Tezos, and TRON.
Time and time again we see customers are really tired of running their own infrastructure, and this is especially true for archival nodes. We are always adding new protocol-specific tooling required to provide customization Archival customers need. Customers love that Bison Trails provides them with a path to not only reduce their operational pain, but add support for new protocols to their own products and services quickly and easily.Rob Christensen, Head of DevOps
CELO token holders can participate by staking with secure custodial storage of their assets. Read more
Read our complete Guide to Cardano for information on the protocol’s innovations, how it works, and economics (including inflation, rewards, and staking).
We couldn’t get away from the idea that blockchains, transfer of value networks, and modern crypto networks were going to be the future.Joe Lallouz, CEO
