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.
