Solana opens physical store in New York City
To promote Solana and Web3
Solana is opening a physical store called ‘Solana Spaces’ in New York City. The new store is located in Hudson Yards and is being launched in collaboration with the Solana Foundation, the organization behind the Solana blockchain.
The store will act as everyone’s first crypto friend” and educate anyone new to the crypto space. To do this, Spaces has various stations, such as a private booth for people to set up their first Phantom wallet.
Other stations offer tutorials on platforms like Magic Eden, the leading Solana NFT marketplace, and STEPN, a play-to-earn app. People can also check out Solana Saga, Solana’s Web3 smartphone announced at NFT NYC earlier this summer.
For visitors more familiar with Solana, Spaces features an interactive art installation visualizing the Solana blockchain, an NFT gallery highlighting the Degenerate Ape Academy collection, and plenty of branded merch for sale, including sneakers designed in collaboration with Blanksoles.
