Highstreet: HIGH (Metaverse)
Highstreet is a ‘Commerce Centered Metaverse’ focused on building the future of shopping inside a video game.
Brands from luxury fashion, streetwear, or NFTs all contribute to the lore of Highstreet World, while department stores like Saks and Harvey Nichols become portals in the real world into the virtual world.
Highstreet’s in-game retail strategy builds a gaming layer on top of already existing e-commerce infrastructure like Shopify to elevate millions of merchants from ‘physical to phygital’. Their retail pilots are already popping up around the world all leading up to the launch of Highstreet Campus and the unveiling of Highstreet City.
Traditional Department Stores: Users who bought items from department stores will find a QR code to be scanned for them to enter into the Highstreet Metaverse with the item they bought seamlessly
Shopify: Highstreet has an integration with Shopify to allow users who have bought items in the digital world to redeem them in real life.
Commercial: In the Highstreet virtual world, there are commercial areas. These areas can be found in most regions like Binance Beach and AVAX Alps.
In the game, you are rewarded as you play, hence the ‘Play-to-Earn’ moniker. Players can expand their base of operations in the game by buying virtual homes via their IHO (Initial Home Offerings) or on the native marketplace. With a home in the Highstreet world, players can unlock many benefits and rewards. With Highstreet tokens players can buy physical items, go to events, progress in the game, as well as benefit financially.
