Bison Trails Extends Collaboration with Coinbase…

Bison Trails announced today extending of collaboration with Coinbase Custody. This integration combines Coinbase Custody’s institutional-grade offline storage solution with the Bison Trails infrastructure platform, allowing Coinbase Custody clients to seamlessly stake their DOT to Bison Trails’ validators.

Bison Trails, the premier blockchain infrastructure-as-a-service company announced today an extension of its integration with Coinbase Custody. This integration will allow Coinbase Custody clients to seamlessly stake Solana (SOL) tokens to enterprise-grade validators on the Bison Trails platform.

According to the announcement sent to Coinspeaker, Coinbase Custody provides an institutional-grade offline storage solution and is one of the first cold storage custodians to offer SOL. Paired with Bison Trails’ secure infrastructure platform, users are presented with the optimal conditions to participate in the SOL network by staking with safe, offline storage of their assets. Delegating SOL now, during Solana’s “warmup period,” gives the stake more time to become active before inflation is enabled on the Solana network and participants can start earning rewards.

This collaboration represents a deepening of the integration of Coinbase Custody’s institutional-grade offline storage solution with the Bison Trails infrastructure platform and comes on the heels of an inaugural collaboration to enable Polkadot (DOT) staking to Bison Trails’ public validators. Coinbase Custody users can stake Solana (SOL) tokens to validators on the Bison Trails platform, easily and securely.

Joe Lallouz, CEO of Bison Trails commented:

“By extending this integration, Bison Trails is now enabling any Coinbase Custody customer to stake their SOL, and DOTs securely to Bison Trails’ highly available validators. It’s a seamless integration and a phenomenal user experience. We look forward to working with the Coinbase Custody team to continue to add support for more protocols in the near future.”

Customers of both Coinbase Custody and Bison Trails will be able to select their Bison Trails validator via the Coinbase interface. This will make it simple to participate in securing Solana, and Polkadot in just a few clicks.

Sam McIngvale, CEO of Coinbase Custody added:

“We are excited to offer our clients an effortless way to stake on the new networks they care about most. With our Bison Trails integration, it has never been easier to earn staking rewards on Coinbase Custody.”
