Libra Association Member Bison Trails adds Ontology (ONT) nodes to platform
Allows seamless deployment of Ontology nodes for enterprise companies
Today, we announced the integration of our Triones Node infrastructure onto the Bison Trails platform, a premier infrastructure as a service platform focused on blockchain participation. This strategic integration will allow enterprises that are testing and deploying on Ontology to launch nodes effortlessly without compromising technical standards or service levels.
According to Deloitte’s 2018 global blockchain survey, 95% of companies across industries made an investment into blockchain projects, with 2019 marking the year those came to fruition. As enterprises begin to take blockchain seriously, a need for enterprise-grade blockchain solutions has come to the forefront. Through the integration with the Bison Trails infrastructure platform, Ontology will now be able to support the needs with strong identification and interchain communication and flexible and trustless exchanges across business enterprises.
“The future of enterprise blockchain involves enabling businesses that help drive transactions to easily participate in both the security and profitability of the chain they’ve chosen. The Bison Trails and Ontology partnership puts in place the foundation to catalyze adoption of the technology,” said Joe Lallouz, CEO of Bison Trails.
The Ontology network currently has 49 Triones node operators and 11 consensus node members across the globe. The strategic integration of Bison Trails will further decentralize high-performance node management and streamline node initiation allowing new enterprises that are testing and deploying on Ontology to launch nodes effortlessly without compromising technical standards, service levels or cost.
“Unlike many other ‘post Bitcoin’ blockchains, Ontology has been focused on enterprise and real-world deployment from day one, successfully launching MainNet back in 2018,” said Li Jun, Founder of Ontology.
“Ontology is focused on providing value by enabling global businesses to collaborate in a secure trusted fashion faster and with fewer costs than ever before. Meanwhile, As a founding member of the Libra Association, Bison Trails created an infrastructure to help launch nodes on a range of blockchain networks. In my opinion, Ontology and Bison Trails have similar missions. We feel confident and also delighted that we can jointly bring technology solutions for more enterprises that need blockchain to transform and upgrade.”
“We are excited to be the first customer of the Bison Trails and Ontology node infrastructure solution and look forward to continued growth with the Bison Trails platform globally,” said Ash Egan, Partner at Accomplice.
