New software from Bison Trails can overcome sharp penalties

New development should reduce the issues related to consensus reaching.

Bison Trails, a Blockchain infrastructure-as-a-service provider, has made a double-signing protection software, or DSP. The task of this software is to solve the issues of sharp penalties related to double signature messages.

Based on the company researches many digital asset holders consider sharp penalties being one of the main risk related to Blockchain participation.

In his interview to Cointelegraph, Aaron Henshaw, CTO and co-founder of Bison Trails, mentioned that such penalties might cause risk dangerous for anyone participating with their stake in a network.

Henshaw says that the development is first being offered to users from the Kuzama and Tezos networks.  Next they plan launching it in Polkadot, Cosmos, and Celo.

According to the information from NY based company that if a cloud provider, region, or even a node has difficulties with double signing events, the development will be able to react for setting the infrastructure online and minimizing downtime, by thus securing such infrastructure won’t cause a double sign.

According to Bison Trails’ CTO:

“Bison Trails can safely respond to outages and even have highly-available nodes waiting without access to the keys they would need to sign.”

In case if a primary node has shortage, the DSP could confirm the release of a private key and allow a backup node to start validation.

In July, Bison Trails announced support for Ethereum 2.0. This update will shift the network from its proof-of-work consensus to proof-of-stake.
