This integration comes after Crypto.com Chain recently announced Crossfire, its mainnet dry-run. Besides, Bison Trails is known for having a strong infrastructure platform that is known for decentralizing nodes across cloud regions and providers. With Bison Trails, validator nodes will be able to sign transaction blocks with high throughput and low latency on the Crypto.com Chain.
Crypto.com To Work Closely With Bison Trails
Bison Trails and Crypto.com will work closely to support other popular protocols like Diem, Tezos, and Cosmos. Bison Trails will aid in the removal of the technical requirements that are needed by validators to run nodes on proof-of-stake networks, which feature the risk of slashing occurring.
Crypto.com CEO Kris Marszalek says, “Attracting Validators to help stress test our mainnet is vital to a successful rollout, and removing technical barriers in the way of running their nodes is critical.”
He added, “We chose to work with Bison Trails because of their skill with distributed systems and robust infrastructures. Their node clusters are built on a multi-cloud, multi-region foundation spread across four continents, and are able to withstand cascading failover events.”
Due to its easy-to-use platform, Bison Trails will allow users to participate even without having deep knowledge of protocol or dev-ops. Integrating Bison Trails will aid validators to easily run nodes on the Crypto.com Chain, which is important as Crypto.com Chain is entering its final phase before the public mainnet is launched.
“We’re excited to support the Crypto.com Chain as it uses battle-tested innovations like Tendermint consensus to build the new financial infrastructure to support Crypto.com’s fleet of offerings and services and advance crypto adoption worldwide,” said Joe Lallouz, CEO of Bison Trails.
The Crypto.com Chain mainnet dry-run, Crossfire, will run through the 15th of February, 2021. Other validators who are participating will compete with each other during tasks. There is a prize pool of $300,000 in CRO for top validators. Click here for more information on setting up a validator.
