—Garry Tan, Initialized
"We couldn't ask for a better infrastructure partner in Bison Trails — the team is well versed in protocol development, and has tremendous respect within the space. Bison Trails is core in Accomplice's ability to scale participation across crypto networks."
—Ash Egan, Accomplice

—Monica Desai, Kleiner Perkins
"It seems quite clear that the future of blockchain investing also means active participation. With the rise of proof-of-stake and other alternative consensus mechanisms, participating in these networks is not just rewarded, but by not participating, you're effectively being penalized as a holder of the token. So the ecosystem needs good tools and infrastructure to make participation accessible for everyone, both technical and non-technical. Bison Trails is a world-class technology organization and product that is solving just this need."
—Nicholas Chirls, Notation Capital
Protocol Teams & Partners
"Staking is an increasingly important element of the crypto ecosystem. It provides Coinbase Custody clients, many of whom have obligations to their investors, with a crypto-native way to participate in network rewards while also contributing to the security and governance of the ecosystem. Working with partners like Bison Trails allows us to offer our clients an easy way to participate in Proof of Stake networks like Polkadot at launch. We look forward to offering more crypto-native features for our clients in the future."
—Sam McIngvale, CEO of Coinbase Custody
"Bison Trails has established itself as a leader in node and blockchain infrastructure so it is encouraging to see them ramp up support for Kusama and Polkadot. We've designed both Kusama and Polkadot to scale to 1,000 validators with similar levels of stake and 100 parachain shards, each with its own collator nodes. Bison Trails empowers dot and ksm holders to participate in the network more quickly and easily than would otherwise be possible."
—Jack Platts, Head of Collaborations, Web3 Foundation
"The Bison Trails team is phenomenal. They've been deeply committed to Keep, and have been a huge help moving our protocol design and development forward. The Keep network requires an abundance of reliable, distributed, and secure nodes, making Bison Trails a strong partner and a great choice for Keep token holders and anyone joining our Stake Drop."
—MATT LUONGO, CEO AT THESIS / KEEP NETWORK’S PROJECT LEAD
"As both a member of the Celo Alliance for Prosperity and an active participant in Celo's incentivized testnet, Bison Trails has demonstrated early and continuous commitment to the Celo community. I'm grateful to their team of protocol experts and engineers as they contribute to the protocol's development and securing the Celo network."
—RENE REINSBERG, CO-FOUNDER OF CELO
"The Bison Trails team really sets the standard for professional node operation. Their team is reliable and committed, and goes beyond technical excellence to build communication and understanding in the wider community."

—Jernej Kos, Director of the Oasis Foundation
"Bison Trails provides an invaluable service to protocol teams like Edgeware; from working with us in the early days of the testnet to actively participating in governance. By helping token holders run their own validators, they’ll continue to help our network grow securely and remain decentralized. We’re looking forward to continuing to work with the team as we launch the network!"
—Dillon Chen, CEO and Co-Founder of Commonwealth Labs, core developer of Edgeware
"We’re proud to have the support of the Bison Trails team, with both teams determined to do everything we can to expand the blockchain ecosystem as a whole. At Solana, we’re developing a scaling solution for blockchains that can uniquely capitalize on improvements in hardware and bandwidth. Because of this approach, the upfront and on-going resources required to participate as a validator in the Solana network can be more demanding than other protocols. Which is why the infrastructure being developed by the Bison Trails team is critical to our network's long term success as their goal is to enable anyone to easily spin up a secure and cost-effective validator. But it doesn’t stop at infrastructure alone, with external opportunities such as the Libra Association where Bison Trails are one of the founding members, and we at Solana being one of the first teams to integrate Libra’s Move VM."
—ERIC WILLIAMS, SOLANA CO-FOUNDER AND CHIEF SCIENTIST
