More attention is being thrown at the metaverse
There has been ongoing conversation regarding the metaverse since the beginning of the year, as seen by scrolling through the official Twitter feed of Binance Labs Fund.
Binance hosted the first metaverse demo in partnership with High Street, League Kingdoms, The Sandbox, Space, and Ultiverse from Jan. 16 to 20.
Highstreet completed its first seed round with investors such as Mechanism Capital, Cherubic Ventures, NGC Ventures, and Jump Trading. In October 2021, the company completed its second seed round with the assistance of Binance Labs and Animoca Brands.
What did the second round bring?
The purpose of the second seed investment was to give the company a boost in its commerce-oriented metaverse. As a direct consequence, Highstreet embarked on a mission to develop the first-ever metaverse marketplace, in which non-fungible tokens (NFTs), which represent tangible items, would be sold.
The marketplace, powered by the ethereum blockchain, was designed specifically for luxury labels to distribute limited-edition goods. Highstreet would construct Binance Beach inside its metaverse marketplace as part of this strategic investment.
