New Casa Sats App Launches To Make Crypto Payments And Lightning Node Management Easier

    Casa’s newly launched mobile app just made it easier for cypherpunks to run their respective lightning nodes. Revolutionizing how ‘paying with crypto’ on the go really means, the new Sats app is a step from all the other similar apps, thanks to the built-in noncustodial wallet.

    The app, launched today, comes complete with a host of exciting additions, all tailored to guarantee a seamless user experience amongst crypto newbies. It is lightweight but allows users to do practically everything, including earning sats right from their phones. Further, using the app, users will conveniently pay using Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, and several other digital coins.

    According to the startup’s CEO, Jeremy Welch, the app’s release precedes a host of rewards programs for their customers. He said that they would stand to earn “Satoshis,” small amounts of BTC, upon completing simple tasks using the app.

    The App Is “Private and Connects Over Tor.”

    The app mainly is expected to allow first-time Bitcoin holders to advance from earning their first coins to managing their lightning nodes. Welch, while speaking exclusively to CoinDesk, he said that the new app’s Casa node is designed to make it a lot faster to earn Bitcoins.

    Since last September, Casa has been launching products while attracting a host of investors in the process. It rolled out protective Faraday bags, a largely successful product, before releasing the Casa lightning node device. It has since raised over $3.5 million in investor funding, according to its CEO, who said that much of it was contributed by Alyse Killeen, Boost VC, Castle Island Ventures, and Compound.

    Casa has also been growing steadily, and it now has about 25 employees and clients spread across 60 countries. The platform’s hordes of customers now run “thousands of active nodes” too.

    The Platform’s Major Customers will be the First to Use it

    However, while the app has been launched, the platform’s primary customers will enjoy its first look, feel and use. The rest of the public will have to wait until later in the month before using it.

    Aside from the app, Casa seems determined to protect its tech-savvy clients. It has Keymaster, a MultiSig custody app, specifically dedicated for all those who would fancy protecting their vast amounts of BTC.

    Meanwhile, the first project promising free Satoshis will have 20,000 of them up for grabs. The CEO announced that the SatsBack reward would rally all Casa nodes connected up on Tor, even though he expects users to actually hold their coins instead of depositing them in exchanges.
