Key and Token Security
Bison Trails never takes possession of a customer’s private keys at any time. As such, we will never ask you for your private keys to run a Livepeer node.
In addition, we are entirely non-custodial and never take custody of user funds. Due to the way the Livepeer protocol is structured, accrued inflation rewards (LPT) and earned fees (ETH) are temporarily pooled on Bison Trails-controlled accounts. These rewards are redistributed to customers on a maximally frequent basis, ensuring the amount of earned tokens at risk is minimized.
For reward calls and delegate reward disbursements, Bison Trails will fund your account with the amount of ETH required to pay on-chain transaction fees.
The Bison Trails platform has advanced internal and external metrics, monitoring, and alerting. In general, metrics fall into the following categories:
Uptime and status indicate how well the node has performed historically and its current status.
Active and bonded status, stake, and reward round metrics give a real-time view into the Livepeer protocol.
Memory and CPU usage give visibility into how much work the node is doing in executing its orchestration responsibilities, among other duties.
Bison Trails is a multi-cloud, multi-region node infrastructure provider with advanced orchestration, resourcing, monitoring and self-healing technologies. We maximize uptime and reward generation by running redundant nodes across multiple regions and cloud providers.
