    Bison Trails to support privacy-focused Oasis Network

    The move is part of the ongoing collaboration between the infrastructure-as-a-service firm and privacy-focused blockchain foundation

    Bison Trails will support the Oasis Network following collaboration on the protocol’s development over the last year. That will make setting up a node on the proof-of-stake network possible with just a few clicks.

    Bison Trails tries to ‘de-risk’ staking with double-signing protection software

    In what is described as an industry first, the company wants to minimize penalties for customers running a node on a proof-of-stake network

    The technology “addresses one of the most unaddressed problems” in the industry: slashing penalties costing a validator part of their stake if a message is double-signed for the same block.

    Bison Trails rolls out support for Ethereum 2.0

    Platform co-founder Aaron Henshaw said he believes the first iteration of ETH 2.0 will launch this year, as Vitalik Buterin’s blockchain moves from proof-of-work to proof-of-stake

    ETH 2.0 will see the network transition from an energy-draining, expensive proof-of-work (PoW) consensus mechanism to proof-of-stake (PoS). This will effectively make miners obsolete, as blocks will instead be verified by validators who stake 32 ETH in order to run a node.
