Reports said that Solana made a series of launch announcements as it prepares to go mainstream. Solana’s roadmap includes the launching of smartphones, decentralized application (DApp) stores, and a partnership with Google Cloud, among others.
It has been reported that Solana Breakpoint, a four-day conference scheduled from November 4 to November 7, attracted 13,000 people in just one of the four venues it’s being held simultaneously.
Vibhu Norby, the CEO and founder of Solana Spaces, took the stage to deliver an interactive presentation while asking attendees to scan QR codes to participate in a giveaway. Norby further unveiled the Solana Store in Miami, showcasing a walkaround video of people checking out the store.
“Now anyone, anywhere can build their own Solana Store.”
However, while explaining the process of building a Solana store, Norby announced the launch of GeoNFTs, a nonfungible token (NFT) implementation, that allows users to geo-tag an area in their city.
He further explained:
“If you have a GeoNFT, you can redeem it 1-for-1 with the exclusive rights to open a Solana store in that region.”
Thus, Solana’s DApp store promises to do away with charges, revenues, and fees. The company confirmed with the interested participants that submissions would open in January 2023.
