Build on Solana as Bison Trails launches Query and Transact Infra

Karthik Subramanian

Bison Trails, a blockchain infrastructure platform-as-a-service company, has announced that it has launched Query and Transact read/write infrastructure for the Solana blockchain that can be used by the developers to verify information, write transactions into the blockchain, and build products and services in Solana.


The platform is currently used by many exchanges, wallets, and Web 3.0 apps to query transaction information and power smart contract interaction like transactions and other data. It works with 30 protocols and developers would have a seamless experience across the different protocols to process the data.

“Bison Trails has been supporting the Solana Blockchain since testnet. As the ecosystem grows, developers are looking for scalable infrastructure solutions that scale with dapps, which Query & Transact can provide,” said Anatoly Yakovenko, President of the Solana Foundation. “Bison Trails provides developers with highly available infrastructure to build the products and services that contribute to the growth of the Solana community, and we are excited to continue our work with them.”

Solana is an open-source permissionless blockchain that uses technology to maximize throughput which enables it to handle more than 50,000 transactions per second proving itself to be a worthy challenger to Ethereum at this time. Many investors believe so too as they continue to invest heavily into the company. Developers have also started building enthusiastically on it and the company says that it has over 500 dapps under construction on its blockchain.

“Even for highly technical teams, running read/write infrastructure is challenging and time-consuming,” said Joe Lallouz, CEO of Bison Trails. “With Solana Query & Transact, enterprises and developers interested in building products and services on Solana have a powerful new solution. We are excited to work with the Solana team, and contribute to the growth of this innovative ecosystem.”

Solana would be looking to the developer community to help them build the transaction volumes as the months roll by. Ethereum had grown so big only due to the full support that it received from the developer community who have built hundreds of dapps on it and the blockchain and its ecosystem continues to strive through the DeFi community.

Solana would be looking for something similar to happen on its blockchain as well and would hope to provide the developers with the right tools and the ecosystem to build their dapps on the Solana blockchain which would then attract the users and help the transaction volumes to grow.
