1. What is Highstreet (HIGH)?

  • Highstreet is a play-to-earn open-world metaverse that incorporates shopping, gaming, NFTs, traditional and crypto brands in an MMORPG game.
    • Nowadays, frictionless checkout with e-commerce eliminates the social aspect of shopping. Highstreet reimagines E-commerce and retail in the Metaverse and Web3 era. This is done by integrating traditional brands into the on-chain world, through tokenizing products into โ€œphygitalโ€ items.
    • Highstreet's play-to-earn is driven by value creation and seeks to demonstrate sustainable yield with its brand partnerships.

1.1 Highstreet Key Highlights

  • โ€‹Dual Token Model: Besides HIGH tokens, STREET tokens are the in-game currency of Highstreet World. It helps ensure later players get an equal chance to enjoy the game without hyperinflation while still rewarding early participants fairly. STREET token use cases include:
    • In-game currency: Used as primary currency to facilitate all transactions in-game (i.e. buying from NPC characters representing brands, buying from other players, in-game item repairs).
    • Play-to-earn: STREET can be earned by hunting monsters and completing quests, STREET Token is the equivalent of SLP in Axie Infinity.

    • Initial Home Offerings (IHO): Users are able to buy their own โ€œhomesโ€ across the various locations in the Highstreet World through the IHO.

  • VR Technology: Highstreet is built with the assumption that players will be fully immersed in virtual worlds, and maturing VR hardware that is available on the market today. Besides actively working with leading hardware manufacturers like HTC, there are other factors that contribute to the development of Highstreet, which include:
    • Personal Embodiment: To capture users' representation of their body movements in the virtual world, the team leverages an avatar SDK called Tafi avatar, the same engine that powers the RTFKT's CloneX NFT collection.
    • Social: To enable social features on VR, Highstreet is developed using Unity Multiplay game engine, a multiplayer hosting service. It synchronizes player bodily movement and supports a large throughput of data to maintain organic player movement (on par with an actual human).
    • VR Analytics: Providing measurable data metrics to VR experiences through the usage of gaze analytics, a new data analytics IP by Retinad, which is acquired by Highstreet.
