Custodial startup Casa has launched the Node Heartbeats solution, which checks the availability of Bitcoin network nodes and rewards their owners for regular maintenance.
The Node Heartbeats solution allows you to “quickly and safely check the status and health of the Casa node.” The Heartbeat SatsBack program was also launched to reward users for regularly using Node Heartbeats. If the owner checks the node at least five times a week, he will receive 0.0001 BTC, that is, about $1.
The developers noted that it is quite difficult for users to maintain the nodes in an updated and functional state, so they launched the Node Heartbeats solution. It is reported that Node Heartbeats establishes a short connection to the node using the Tor network. While the node is online, the fact of establishing a connection is recorded in the Casa Sats application, and users receive a reward.
Recall that in early July, Casa released a mobile application for managing the Lightning Network node. Now novice users can easily manage their Lightning node via a smartphone
