Blockchain startup Bison Trails has raised $25.5 million in a Series A financing round led by Blockchain Capital. The round also saw participation from Kleiner Perkins, Coinbase, Collaborative Fund, A Capital, Consensys, Sound Ventures, Initialized, Accomplice, Galaxy Digital and Notation.

Bison Trails claims to be the world’s first infrastructure as a service company designed for next-generation blockchain networks. It claims to provide a full stack offering for next-generation infrastructure and its constituents, including staking, validating, voting, transacting, and securing blockchain protocols. Their goal is to make it easy for anyone to launch secure, highly-available, and geographically distributed nodes on a participatory blockchain network with only a few clicks. Bison Trails is the preferred blockchain infrastructure provider for more than 20 protocol projects. It is also a Founding Member of the Libra Association, where it will be playing a key role in strengthening the network to support billions of transactions.

The latest funding round will reportedly further Bison Trails’ leadership as the preferred Infrastructure-as-a-Service provider for the fastest growing blockchain protocols while continuing to tackle the most compelling opportunities in the infrastructure space.

“When we started building Bison Trails, we wanted to bring transparency and ease to entrepreneurs bold enough to build in a decentralized ecosystem, investors wise enough to back a nascent market, and enterprises courageous enough to commit to a technological inevitability like blockchain technology and cryptocurrency,” said Joe Lallouz, CEO of Bison Trails. “We have become the easiest way to run infrastructure on multiple blockchains. And have helped the world’s leading protocols, companies and builders launch and manage secure, highly-available, and geographically distributed nodes on blockchain networks.”

“We are building a block production and validation infrastructure platform that is secure, reliable, globally-distributed,” said Aaron Henshaw, CTO of Bison Trails. “Our team and culture plays a major role in that and is a huge focus for us as we continue expanding — we aim to bring together world-class engineering, product, and design teams to work together on some of the most interesting and challenging opportunities in the infrastructure space.”
