Why can't I see my node on explore.casa?

Our Lightning explorer tool (found here) and other Lightning explorers will only detect nodes that have active, open channels.

If you don't have any open channels, you won't be able to find your node on explore.casa or other explorers.

If you have Bitcoin on your node's wallet and would like to open a lightning channel, the easiest way to do this is by enabling Autopilot. Autopilot on your node will automatically open and manage channels in the background.

You can enable Autopilot on your Node by navigating the the "Manage" section of your Lightning dashboard.

If you already have open channels that are confirmed on the blockchain, and you are still unable to see your node on explore.casa, you may need to enable port forwarding or, even better, enable Tor connections.


You can enable port forwarding by following the instructions here.

You can enable Tor connections on your node (recommended!) here
