Solana Opens Merch Store 

In a Tweet made on the 17th of May 2021, Solana announced the launch of its new merch store. The blockchain aims at creating a one-stop platform for the fast and secure creation of crypto applications that scale. This development, along with its censorship-resistant blockchain, promises to lead to even more global adoption. 

User demand provoked the decision to launch the storefront, as the chain continues to see increased adoption and interaction. Users can now select and order high-quality merch from arguably one of the best cryptocurrency projects, and will also enjoy browsing through the store with its smooth interface. 


Features of Solana Merch Store 

One unique feature about the merch store is its extremely smooth interface. The website was created with simplicity in mind, much like its parent blockchain. On the homepage, users can get to browse through the collections, which include shirts, bags, caps, mugs, and other forms of merchandise. 

The website features a catalog, which is a display of all products/collections. Here, you can sort merchandise based on your preference. This means that you can select how you want every collection to be displayed — alphabetically (A-Z or Z-A), by price (highest to lowest or vice-versa), by date (old to new or vice-versa). There is also a search page for users to find what they want in the store. This means that shoppers who are searching for a specific item or price range can easily locate the product they are looking for!

On the top right-hand corner of the homepage, users can easily register with just one click. Creating an account in the store is very easy. All that is required is your first name, last name, email, and a strong password. Once registered, you can browse products and add them to the cart provided in-store.

Shopify powers the store, and there are a lot of payment options available. At this time cryptocurrency is not a payment option, but is in the plans for future implementation.

Solana is a fast, secure, and censorship-resistant blockchain that provides the open infrastructure (decentralized apps and marketplaces) needed for global adoption. Its mission is to enable the crypto economy to scale to a worldwide audience. The blockchain system currently supports 65,000 Transactions Per Second (TPS) and 400ms Block Times. 


Final Thoughts 

Presently, the Solana blockchain is not very well-known outside the crypto community. However, many experts believe that the blockchain platform is compelling, thanks to benefits like high-speed transactions and low fees. The new merch store is just another strategy by Solana blockchain to increase adoption considering the variety of use-cases at its disposal. They are looking to expand outside the crypto community while also attracting users to its blockchain system, creating a full-scale business approach on multiple fronts. The timing of this announcement comes during a rocky period for cryptocurrency, which has led to it garnering a mixed reception. Despite initial reactions, the store is an exciting offering for members of the Solana community.
