Visitors to the store will have access to different tutorials, programming, and experiences for new entrants into crypto, often offering unique rewards for participation.
Using a seed phrase booth, customers will be able to create their own Solana Phantom wallets. Visitors who complete the educational courses on Solana projects can gain access to a wide range of NFTs and cryptocurrencies, including USD Coin (USDC).
Additionally, the store will feature interactive art installations, a demonstration of Solana’s upcoming Saga phone, crypto “lifestyle” products like hoodies and T-shirts, and a selection of the ecosystem’s NFT collections. The store also offers a 50 percent discount on purchases up to $200 when using the Solana Pay app, and it plans to rotate the customer experiences.
Solana Spaces will be the first of its kind in the crypto industry, which has traditionally favored digital over physical products. As part of its other forays into the physical world, the company unveiled a Solana-branded smartphone last month.
The company via its official Twitter account also noted that every month, they’ll be introducing new limited edition drops and products and also dropping new updates.
