Solana opens IRL retail store and Web3 “embassy” in New York

A Solana-themed store will open in New York City. Called Solana Spaces, the new store is located in Hudson Yards and is being launched by the Solana Foundation, which is shaping up to be a “cultural hub” and “embassy” for Solana.

Cryptocurrency and Web3 are slowly infiltrating mainstream culture along with many celebrities like: Tom Brady, Steve Aoki, Snoop Dogg, Elon Musk… Brands like NFT Collection Bored Ape Yatch Clubs have even established product and business arm “IRL,” including a theme restaurant in Los Angeles.

Come to the store, you will learn about how Solana works, what Web3 is. We will set you up with a wallet and your first NFTs and walk you through your first transactions.”

In addition to basic tutorials, the space will also display and sell artwork and a wide variety of Solana-branded items, including a limited number of Blanksoles sneakers.

Ahead of its grand opening, Solana Spaces opened its doors last weekend to a group of 30 early visitors. Although not yet officially open to customers, the store has already made a significant splash on social media. It even caught the attention of Genie founder and Uniswap Chief Product Officer, Scott Lewis.

Earlier at the end of June, Solana also revealed the appearance of its Web3 smartphone and the high possibility that users will see this phone in person on the opening day of Solana Spaces.

SOL is currently the 9th largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, having gained more than 9% in the last 24 hours and is trading around $39.09.
