With Casa Node 2, you can open Lightning channels in a flash.
Prior to opening Lightning channels, you'll need to first deposit BTC funds on your node.
To open a channel manually, click "Lightning" on the left-hand side of your Node's dashboard.
Next, tap "Open Channel" and enter in the details of the channel you're connecting to.
Lastly, hit "Open Channel."
That's it! Once the transaction you've made to open the channel confirms on the blockchain, you'll be ready to use the channel to send and receive payments on the Lightning Network.
