Casa launches incentive feature for maintaining Bitcoin node health

posted 4 months ago
Bitcoin custody startup Casa launched Node Heartbeats, a new feature to "privately, quickly and securely check that your Casa Node is working properly." Casa also launched the Heartbeat SatsBack Reward program, which will reward its users for regularly using Node Heartbeats 0.0001BTC, (approximately $1), for sending at least five "heartbeats" a week.

With Node Heartbeats, Casa will send a brief connection from its server, over Tor, to a user's Casa bitcoin node. As long as the node is online, a connection will be made, and a "heartbeat" will be logged on the Casa Sats App. Casa CEO, Jeremy Welch said "More healthy Casa Nodes mean a much healthier Bitcoin and Lightning network.”
