Though there is an on-going crypto winter, the number of interested players to invest in the crypto industry is on the rise. On a similar note, Bison Trails, a blockchain start-up has managed to raise funding of $5.25 Million from Mike Novogratz’s Galaxy Digital. The funding was provided in a series of seeding funding over time.
At the announcement of the funding, Bison Trails said that the negotiations regarding the investment had been done with the help of Accomplice and Initialized Capital. Angel investors like Notation Capital, Homebrew, Distributed Global and Charge Ventures have also taken part of the negotiations.
However, Bison Trails, headquartered at New York, refused to share any details or plans of the potential usage and utilization of the funding stating the chance of underscoring the mission.
It should be noted that Bison Trails was founded last year with an aim to make future of blockchain and cryptocurrency participation not only transparent but also easier with no centralization. Bison Trails let its clients launch “highly-available, and geographically distributed” nodes, and it also offers infrastructure solutions like staking, validating, voting, transacting and securing blockchain protocols.
“The infrastructure that we’re building today will pave the way for an entire generation of new decentralized companies, services, and participants to access blockchain economies and networks,” Bison claims. The platform would be available to partners in the coming weeks.
It should be noted that staking is generally used for backing a network through holding its tokens and running a node for rewards. This has been receiving attention from numerous investors in recent months.
In January, this year, a start-up based on blockchain staking-as-a-service, staked managed to raise $4.5 million through seed funding from a major blockchain firm Pantera Capital. The start-up facilitates the investor’s infrastructure for non-custodial staking services. Staked’s seed round had other players as well; they include Coinbase Ventures, Global Brain, Digital Currency Group, Winklevoss Capital, Fabric Ventures and Blocktree Capital.
