Perfect Place To Get Acquainted With Web3

Solana (SOL), the 9th largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, has decided to go the brick & mortar way to engage people. Any curious person will be able to come in and get their first-ever crypto wallet. ‘Spaces is everyone’s Crypto friend’, – reads Solana Spaces’ Twitter.

Moreover, the visitors will be able to earn some USD Coin (USDC) while they’re at it, as the Solana Spaces have a built-in Learn & Earn program. The program also includes tutorials from the top move-to-earn app STEPN, as well as Phantom & others. Bringing face-to-face lessons about crypto is a great way to educate those who ‘don’t have that crypto friend’.

Every month, we’ll be rotating the experiences offered in store, and introducing new limited edition drops and products.

And we’re not done yet. There’s more to this story. Stay tuned!

What’s more, The Solana Foundation hasn’t forgotten about those who are already advanced in blockchain technology. The $5 million Summer Camp Hackathon began on July 11th and it’s going to run over a month, until August 16th. Coders will be able to complete tasks & quests and get a piece of the $5M pie.

Solana (SOL) Price Up by Double Digits

Even though the altcoin has long ways to go to be able to compete with Ethereum (ETH), the recent developments in Solana’s ecosystem made a positive impact on its price. At press time, Solana (SOL) is trading at $40.40, enjoying a 10% profit in the last 24 hours, according to CoinGecko.

The bullish run enabled Solana (SOL) to be among the leaders in the last fortnight with 15.2% in the green. In yearly terms, SOL is up by 44%, indicating that the relatively young crypto project is making all the right moves.

Real-life retail stores are very unusual for cryptocurrencies. However, this year has seen the first Bored Ape Yacht Club-themed restaurant. Moreover, Shiba Inu (SHIB) opened Welly’s restaurant in Italy, with plans to expand. As more cryptos are setting up shop in physical places, this could accelerate crypto adoption around the globe.
