Keys and Token Security
Bison Trails is entirely non-custodial and we never take possession of a customer’s private keys at any time. As such, we will never ask you for your private keys to run a Kusama validator, nor take custody of your KSM or other tokens.
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.
Block height and connected peers give a real-time view into the Kusama blockchain.
Memory and CPU usage give visibility into how much work the node is doing in processing the mempool and propagating blocks, 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.
