Here’s all you need to know about the Highstreet x Animoca Brands IHO:
What is an Initial Home offering (IHO) ?

The Highstreet World Metaverse IHO
The homes for sale of the upcoming IHO will be part of the Highstreet World metaverse. The virtual world is made up of a host of regions with unique characteristics. One of these is the Animoca Archipelago, an island chain off the coast of Solera, Highstreet World’s main continent.
To be sure, the Highstreet World Metaverse is off to a promising start to develop user elements for meta-living. Here, anyone from across the globe can become part of a diverse, creative metaverse community.

“We are committed to a metaverse that is open and interoperable,” said Yat Siu, the co-founder and chairman of Animoca Brands. “Highstreet is an exciting investment for us because it brings together brands from both the Web3 and traditional online worlds, allowing assets to flow between them. We look forward to making the Animoca Archipelago in Highstreet World a virtual destination where our many different communities and many others can come together in one place.”
What is the Animoca Archipelago?
Along with the Highstreet IHO, Animoca Brands is also unveiling the ‘Animoca Archipelago’. A region in the Highstreet World, Animoca Archipelago features a network of islands, each representing a brand or game that is part of Animoca Brands or that Animoca brands have a stake in. These include REVV Motorsport, LayerZero, ApeCoin, PSG Talon, and more.
In short, the Archipelago has deep integrations with games from Animoca Brands’ ecosystem and an esports league. This gives players a great new way to be part of a vast, connected gamer community.
“Animoca Archipelago is a place where many universes shaped by games, brands, and IP coexist in harmony,” said Travis Wu, CEO of Highstreet World Metaverse. “Models and assets from other projects will function within this enormous space, where users can interact with each other in novel ways.
