Running a full node made easy
Manage your Casa node with a beautiful browser interface, no technical skills needed. Finally, anyone can run a full node.
Verify your own transactions from light client apps
Use Bitcoin as it was meant to be used - by validating the blockchain yourself and broadcasting all of your own transactions. You can connect your Casa Node to mobile apps that work as light clients, so you don’t have to rely on outside servers for sending transactions.
Support the network and help Bitcoin grow
Bitcoin’s distributed nature relies on full nodes for validating and sharing chain data. Running a full node helps Bitcoin stay secure as the currency grows in use around the world.
The easiest way to access the Lightning Network
The Casa Node is the first intuitive, easy to use way to utilize the Lightning Network. We’ve created a smooth setup process with short explanations of difficult concepts, so you can be up and running with Lightning in a flash. No coding experience required.
Online 24/7 to keep your funds safe
The Lightning Network requires nodes to be online 24/7 in order to ensure security of their funds. The Casa Node’s small form factor allows it to stay online unobtrusively in your home, without using much electricity. Have a temporary power outage? Your Node will automatically boot back up and come online to keep your Lightning channels open and funds safe.
You own the keys
Your keys, your crypto. You fully own and manage your keys and funds - we just give you an intuitive way to manage it with the Casa Keymaster app.
Route payments for others to strengthen the network and make money
Lightning relies on interconnected nodes to route each other’s payments through the network to the intended receiver. Every new Lightning node increases the overall capacity and usability of the network - this is your chance to easily strengthen Lightning in its earliest days. You can even earn a (very small!) amount of money by collecting fees on payments you route for other nodes.
