Why you should run a Casa Node
Update: Casa Node software is no longer maintained; we recommend looking at other build-your-own node projects.
There are many reasons why you should run a Bitcoin node—it makes the Bitcoin network more robust, protects your investment in Bitcoin and enhances privacy, to name a few.
Why should you run a Casa Node?
Because Casa Node offers several benefits you can't get anywhere else:
- Plug-and-play; no coding required.
- Use Bitcoin + Lightning from Anywhere.
- Earn Bitcoin with Sats App.
- Unmatched usability.
- Fast and stable hardware.
- Best-in-class support.
- Casa Node comes with a Casa Gold membership.
Lets explore these benefits in more detail.
Building your own node requires time and technical knowledge, even if you’re using a publicly available guide. Casa Nodes come pre-built and pre-synced, so all you need to do is plug it in, follow a few simple steps, and you’re off—no coding required. You can even re-sync the blockchain from scratch with a single button click on the Casa Node dashboard, if you want to verify the chain yourself.
Bitcoin + Lightning from Anywhere with Sats App
Casa Nodes are Lightning Bitcoin nodes, meaning you get the benefits of running a Bitcoin node in addition to direct access to the Lightning Network for faster transacting. Casa Node also pairs with Sats App to make sending Lightning payments across the web possible in only a few clicks from anywhere.
Earn Bitcoin for Running Casa Node
Tap a button to check your node’s health five times per week and get 10,000 Sats for it. It’s our way of incentivizing node operators to maintain a healthy node while strengthening the Bitcoin network. Now that’s a win-win scenario.
Casa Node 2’s sleek design, UX and third-party integrations make its usability simply unrivaled.
Strong design and usability are at the heart of all that is Casa Node.
Casa Node’s dashboard makes running a node intuitive for anyone.
Casa Node 2 also supports third-party integrations, starting with BTCPay Server. This makes Casa Node 2 ideal for both individuals and small businesses in need of an eCommerce gateway. We’ll be rolling out more integrations that enhance Casa Node 2’s usability in the future.
Easy In-Browser Lightning Payments with Sats Extension
Sats Extension for Casa Node makes in-browser lightning payments possible in just a few clicks. Enter your password to automatically connect your Casa Node, then start making and receiving Bitcoin and Lightning Network payments across the web.
Fast and Stable Hardware
Casa Node 1 was built for reliability and ease of use. Casa Node 2 takes those same qualities and adds faster processor and 4 GB of RAM. Couple that with its 1 TB SSD drive, and what do you get?
Good old-fashioned speed. Casa Node 2 packs a better CPU, more memory, and faster storage. It’s perfect for everyone from casual users to hardcore Bitcoiners, because at the end of the day, you just don’t need a supercomputer to run a node.
With a Casa paid membership you have direct access to our support team. Email us any time you have questions, and we’ll do everything we can to help. Our products are built so that you can do it all yourself, but we’re still here when you need us. Check out the Casa Knowledge Base for FAQs and the Casa YouTube channel for video tutorials.
While we encourage anyone interested in building their own node to do so, you’ll have to reach out to the broader community for support if you get stuck.
