The legendary investor and head of Berkshire Hathaway Warren Buffett has not changed his attitude to Bitcoin. In an interview with CNBC, he called the first cryptocurrency a delusion. At the same time, he stressed that he explained the nature of the blockchain technology and digital assets.

Bitcoin has no unique value at all. It is a delusion, basically. It attracts charlatans. If you do something phony by going out and selling yo-yos or something, there's no money in it — but when you get into Wall Street, there's huge money.

In early December last year, Morgan Creek decided to make a bet for the same amount, putting on the fact that cryptocurrencies would surpass the S & P 500 for the same period.

Casa startup, specializing in the creation of secure storage systems for private keys, introduced a mobile bitcoin application Sats App, which makes it easy to manage Lightning-node.

Sats App is positioned as a non-custodial bitcoin wallet "with unique functions." According to Casa CEO Jeremy Welch, the SatsBack reward program will soon be launched, under which users will receive small amounts in BTC. For example, for connecting an application and a Casa Node device to each other, the user will receive 20,000 Satoshi.

Features are focused on increasing adoption of bitcoin and lightning nodes. You will be able to earn bitcoin if you don’t have a Casa node, but you will be able to earn bitcoin faster if you have a node.
