After working with the Algorand team for close to a year, we are proud to announce that Bison Trails will be supporting the Algorand mainnet launch! We will democratize access to the Algorand network by making it easy for anyone to run enterprise-grade Algorand nodes using the Bison Trails platform.


What is Algorand?

The Algorand protocol was created by Silvio Micali, recipient of the Turing Prize for his contributions to the field of cryptography. It uses a pure proof-of-stake consensus mechanism with high throughput, fast transaction finality, and partition resilience. It has two types of nodes: Relay and Participation nodes. Relay nodes connect the network, propagate transactions and blocks, and facilitate blockchain sync for new nodes joining the network. Participation nodes host one or more sets of participation keys and carry out Algorand’s consensus algorithm.


What is Bison Trails?

Bison Trails is the easiest way to run infrastructure on multiple blockchains. We offer the premier multi-cloud, geographically distributed platform with enterprise-grade security, orchestration, redundancy, and scaling to run highly efficient nodes. Our mission is to help the entire blockchain ecosystem flourish by providing robust infrastructure for the pioneers of tomorrow.


How do I run Algorand infrastructure with Bison Trails?

You can familiarize yourself with our Algorand offering by contacting us directly at hi@bisontrails.co. We’re incredibly excited to support and secure this new network, and look forward to a successful mainnet launch!
