Casa Releases New Version of Its Bitcoin Full Node Casa Node 2
Original Casa Node did a great job, the firm says
According to an Oct. 8 blog post, Casa Node 2 offers a faster and smoother Bitcoin and Lightning experience by deploying a faster processor on Raspberry Pi 4, with 4GB RAM and a 1TB solid state drive.
In the announcement, Casa stated that their original Casa node did a great job as a full Bitcoin and Lightning node in a reliable device. However, the company “wanted to do more” and was planning to improve their hardware in order to do so.
Early upgrades to Casa Node 2 are available to pre-order, the firm added.
As part of the announcement, Casa also introduced a new version of its native node software NodeOS, which now has an updated design and dark mode. Following the launch of the update, the Casa Node 2 will also be running major open-source Bitcoin payments processor BTCPayServer.
Casa will distribute its Node 2 devices in limited numbers in October and November at a discount price of $300, according to the announcement.
While Casa claims that the original Casa Node was highly effective as a full Bitcoin node, some customers reported that earlier iterations of the model were slow, while agreeing that plug-and-play nodes such as Casa are here to stay.
