Solana Spaces is closing its physical storefronts in New York City and Miami in order to focus on NFT airdrop platform DRiP, CEO Vibhu announced.
IRL Stores Opened July 2022
The brick-and-mortar Solana Spaces stores in New York City and Miami are closing, eight months after the experimental crypto storefronts opened to great fanfare.
According to a Twitter post from CEO Vibhu, Solana Spaces is closing the stores in order to focus on the DRiP Non-Fungible Token (NFT) airdrop platform.
“As I told people often, as awesome as the stores were, if we found a more efficient way to bring people into Solana, we would throw our efforts at that,” Vibhu said. “ And as it were, I found that in DRiP. While our stores onboard between 500 and 1000 people per week, DRiP onboards that same quantity EVERY DAY.”
Solana Spaces will be decentralized by making its software open source. The entity is identifying other places in New York and Miami for people to obtain Solana merchandise and attend activities.
The stores officially close Feb. 28.
