Bison Trails is Supporting Algorand’s Mainnet Launch

Jun 19 2019 By Viktor Bunin

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.


About 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.


Bison Trails: Pioneering Blockchain Infrastructure®

Bison Trails is an Infrastructure-as-a-Service company, based in New York City, specifically focused on blockchain participation. We’ve built a platform for anyone who wants to participate in new chains effortlessly (e.g. by running Cosmos Validators, Tezos Bakers, and Libra Validators, etc.)—without having to invest time and resources into developing any of the engineering, protocol, dev ops, or security competencies in-house. Our goal is for the entire blockchain ecosystem to flourish by providing robust infrastructure for the pioneers of tomorrow.


How do I run Algorand infrastructure with Bison Trails?
