Casa’s new mobile app makes it easier to manage your lightning node on the go.
Launched today, the new Sats App works like a noncustodial wallet with some unique features. In addition to being able to manage a user’s lightning node from the mobile app, Casa CEO Jeremy Welch said the startup will soon roll out a rewards program for earning small amounts of bitcoin through the app.
The goal is to help crypto newbies graduate from earning their first bitcoin all the way to managing a lightning node with just one mobile app.
