Solana, a popular alternative to Ethereum for buying NFTs, announced that it will be opening a physical store in New York. The store, named Solana Spaces, is envisioned as a “cultural center” for Solana.
Customers will be able to acquire a digital wallet and NFTs, as well as Solana-themed merchandise. The store will also include an interactive art installation. In addition, buyers new to crypto will be instructed on how to make their first on-chain transactions. A preview was already arranged for 30 visitors to visit the store the past weekend.
Solana is currently the ninth largest crypto by market capitalization. The store is part of Solana’s general aim to expand its business. In June, the company announced the launch of its own smartphone.
