German coder Anton Röhm began developing Spacehey in 2020. He is too young to have used MySpace when it was popular, but upon learning about it, decided to pursue creating Spacehey. “I came to the conclusion that you can’t find something like this nowadays, where everyone can be this creative,” he told Vice. Spacehey launched on November 29th, 2020. Within a year, the site had over 200,000 registered users.
