Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey, took another step towards financial sovereignty yesterday when he tweeted about his new toy, a Casa Bitcoin full node.
Mi Casa Es Su Casa
The Casa Node is a plug-and-play solution for running your own full Bitcoin and Lightning Network node at home. Running a Bitcoin full node allows you to validate the blockchain and verify your own transactions. Aside from this, it also increases decentralization and hence the security of the network.
Lightning Network relies on interconnected nodes to route payments, so running one increases the network capacity and usability. Owners of nodes can also earn fees for routing payments, but bear in mind these are lightning payments, so the fees are very low.
Hit The Node, Jack!
Dorsey was clearly excited to receive his new piece of kit, tweeting firstly a picture of the unboxing, and then images of the set-up. Eagle-eyed readers may also have noticed the Bitcoin FUD dice in the unboxing shot.
Got one of these to play with. Thanks @CasaHODL @jeremyrwelch!
