Highstreet Enriches VR Metaverse With Upcoming Launch Of FOMO Duck NFTs

The FOMO Duck NFTs will introduce new users to Highstreet's commerce-centred metaverse

Vancouver, BC, Sept 14, 2021 - (ACN Newswire) - Highstreet is launching NFTs of its mascot FOMO Duck, which will serve as a guide for new users who become community members of the world's first commerce-centred metaverse.

Highstreet's Metaverse provides accessibility to gaming, entertainment, real estate, crypto, and other scenarios for its users. Highstreet World consists of fully explorable islands powered by brands and partners alike, each with residential areas as well as various phygital products - digital assets pegged to real-world products - sold as NFTs.

Highstreet Market is a special marketplace located in Highstreet City inside the metaverse. It specializes in redeemable limited edition phygital products, meaning every token represents both the digital and physical components of the product. Highstreet Market's StreetSmart bonding curves utilize a smart contract vault to ensure liquidity for the buyer at all times. By tokenizing each individual product into ERC-20 tokens, Highstreet Market eliminates the logistical overhead for third-party asset traders, ensuring that only creators and true collectors possess and handle the items.

With the help of recognizable companies like HTC, Highstreet not only allows users to buy actual products through digital means but also allows friends to join parties to shop and earn together in a growing metaverse.

Highstreet's marketplace can be navigated through web browsers. For those with access to native VR, Highstreet's metaverse is a real place where users can tap into face-to-face interactions using high-quality, 3D avatars thanks to its recent partnership with Tafi.

The denizens of Highstreet's metaverse will encounter FOMO Duck, a mascot with an integral role in the shared digital environment. Highstreet plans to launch FOMO Duck as an NFT on September 17, 2021, with 250 released each day until the total supply of 10,000 FOMO Ducks has been minted.

FOMO Duck NFTs can be minted by anyone who completes a list of tasks on Gleam. The minting fee is 0.069ETH and limited to one Duck per address. Each FOMO Duck has 3 attempts to enter the Highstreet Moon Vault and obtain a $HIGH Voucher. Holders of FOMO Ducks will also qualify for exclusive bonuses leading up to our metaverse unveil and launch near Halloween.

Highstreet has two affiliated Subsidiaries: Sundance-backed LumiereVR Studio and Retinad Analytics. Acquired in 2018, Retinad is a gaze and eye-tracking technology company that automates consumer insights collection for brands.
