Solana is an open source project building a high-performance, permissionless blockchain that uses highly scalable technology to prioritize transaction throughput, the ability to process a large number of transactions in a short span of time. Solana is currently able to process more than 50,000 transactions per second.
With its high throughput capacity, Solana has seen strong interest from developers and enterprises alike. Over 250 new projects were live in the Solana ecosystem as of April 2021, including high-profile projects like NFT Marketplace Metaplex and decentralized exchange Serum. In June 2021, Solana completed a $314.15M private token sale, a percentage of which will be used to launch an incubation studio to accelerate the development of decentralized applications and platforms building on Solana.
Secure, reliable, and easy-to-use infrastructure is critical for the continued flourishing of the Solana ecosystem. Although Solana’s high throughput capacity is well-suited for many use cases including trading, it also makes Solana’s node infrastructure complex and challenging to manage. Nodes require powerful hardware, extremely high bandwidth, and significant protocol expertise to manage participation.
Bison Trails has collaborated closely with the Solana team to support the network in growing and scaling securely. We operated one of the first nodes in Tour-de-Sol, Solana’s incentivized testnet. Since mainnet beta launch, we have helped our clients manage the complexity of participation with secure, tested validator infrastructure run by seasoned protocol engineers and specialists.
Now, we are expanding our Solana offerings to include our Query & Transact read/write infrastructure to empower developers interested in building on the blockchain.
With Query & Transact, developers interested in building on Solana can easily run read/write nodes, access data from the blockchain, and build applications and services that connect to Solana.
Even for highly technical teams, running nodes can be an expensive, time-consuming process. It requires strong protocol expertise, staying up-to-date with the latest network changes, and scaling infrastructure to manage potential changes in throughput. These demands are particularly true for Solana read/write infrastructure, given the higher throughput capacity than other protocols.
Bison Trails’ Solana Query & Transact alleviates this challenge and makes it easier to build on Solana. Developers and enterprises interested in building applications and services connected to the Solana network can easily manage their infrastructure from a single platform, and quickly scale their infrastructure based on changing throughput requirements.
We are infrastructure experts with deep insights into the Solana network. With Solana Query & Transact read/write infrastructure, you can focus on your product and customers instead of core node infrastructure.
Bison Trails is a blockchain infrastructure platform-as-a-service (PaaS) company based in New York City. We built a platform for anyone who wants to participate in 21 new chains effortlessly.
We also make it easy for anyone building Web 3.0 applications to connect to blockchain data from 33 protocols with Query & Transact (QT). Our goal is for the entire blockchain ecosystem to flourish by providing robust infrastructure for the pioneers of tomorrow.
In January, 2021, we announced Bison Trails joined Coinbase to accelerate our mission to provide easy-to-use blockchain infrastructure, now as a standalone product line. The Bison Trails platform will continue to support our customers. With Coinbase’s backing, we will enhance our infrastructure platform and make it even easier to participate in decentralized networks and build applications that connect to blockchain data.
