What can I do now

My node is up and running. I don’t have anything I need to send my sats for at the moment but what can I do to optimize my node and get the most of it

Start here Getting Started with Umbrel node


Download the mempool space app. It is fun to just watch or have going in the background when you are doing other things.


Open some lightning channels while fees are low. Thank yourself later. Work on getting all your wallets to reference your node instead of someones else’s node. Great for privacy and your no longer trusting a 3rd party to validate your coin.

Update your node alias and color and register it on a website like https://amboss.space or https://1ml.com/ Note that you will have to open a channel with 1ML and lock up some funds.
