Bison Trails optimizes block production over 20 blockchain protocols

Bison Trails is working to optimize the block production and validation at numerous blockchain protocols. The firm’s infrastructure has a unique design that allows it to launch secure and geographically distributed nodes on a blockchain network. The platform enables users to access a number of blockchain tools that are designed to improve blockchain networks. These tools include staking, verifying, voting, and securing blockchain protocols.

The firm is actively securing Tezos, Decred, and Livepeer among various other protocols. The firm provides infrastructure for deploying participation nodes and hence reduces customer cost on developing internal blockchain protocols. This way, the cost of the entire process decreases significantly.

The company’s new investor Consensys recently launched a blockchain firm called Aligned Capital.
