Particle B Announces Partnership with Bison Trails for the Cronos Testnet and Mainnet Beta
  • Particle B wants to help and strengthen the security of Cronos mainnet beta.
  • Cronos is the first DeFi, NFT, and Metaverse EVM chain.

Particle B, a startup built on a blockchain, has announced a collaboration with Bison Trails, a leading blockchain infrastructure platform-as-a-service provider, in the testnet and mainnet beta of Cronos, the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) chain operating parallel to the Crypto.org Chain.

By hosting a validator node with Bison Trails, Particle B wants to help and strengthen the security of Cronos mainnet beta. The company’s involvement in the Cronos rollout supports the expansion of the broader blockchain ecosystem. The Bison Trails platform helps developers join decentralized networks and create apps that use blockchain data.

Cronos is the first DeFi, NFT, and Metaverse EVM chain. DeFi and decentralized application ecosystems will be greatly scaled by allowing developers to migrate applications from Ethereum and EVM-compatible networks immediately.

Aaron Henshaw, Head of Engineering at Coinbase Cloud and co-founder of Bison Trails, said:

“We’re excited to support the launch of Cronos and believe that it will continue to advance the mainstream adoption of crypto with EVM compatibility and capability to support DeFi solutions and more. Similar to the launch of Crypto.org Chain, this is a milestone that will help expand access to innovative offerings and services.”

Validator Node on Both Test Testnet and Mainnet

Crypto.com enlisted bison Trails for providing validator node infrastructure assistance on the Crypto.org Chain around December 2020. With Bison Trails’ powerful node architecture, validators could sign transaction blocks quickly and efficiently on the Crypto.org chain. The new partnership with Bison Trails extends to the Cronos mainnet beta launch. Bison Trails will operate a validator node on both the testnet and mainnet.

Crypto.com will also use Bison Trails’ infrastructure to offer Cronos node service. Among other things, Bison Trails will help structure, coordinate, and roll out Cronos’ testnet and mainnet launches.
