Coinbase’s Bison Trails Adds Developer Tooling for Solana Blockchain

Blockchain infrastructure-as-a-service firm Bison Trails announced Tuesday that it has launched its Query & Transact node infrastructure on the Solana blockchain.

The new tooling will allow Solana developers to access and verify blockchain data, write transactions and build applications and services that will further grow the rapidly-expanding Solana ecosystem.

In January 2021, Coinbase purchased Bison Trails, which now operates as a standalone product line. It’s Query & Transact node infrastructure is used by a variety of exchanges, wallets, Web 3 developers and machine-learning companies to process data.

Even for highly technical teams, running read/write infrastructure is challenging and time-consuming,” Joe Lallouz, CEO of Bison Trails, said in a statement. “With Solana Query & Transact, enterprises and developers interested in building products and services on Solana have a powerful new solution.”

According to Anatoly Yakovenko, president of the Solana Foundation, the partnership between Bison Trails and Solana goes all the way back to Solana’s testnet. Yakovenko said the integration will provide a scalable solution for the blockchain’s decentralized app (dapp) developers.
