Today, Highrise World shares information on its first LAND sale, available exclusively for purchase by Highrise Creature Club NFT holders. This sale will offer 11,111 ERC-721 LAND parcels on the Ethereum blockchain that compose an island called Creature Island. The Creature Island LAND sale begins April 27 at 9 a.m. PST at https://highrise.game
. Landowners will be able to build and brand their own nations, cultivate a rich and unique identity by creating experiences, build, rent and give away rooms, earn an income and profit, and govern and rule.
“Highrise World is a true metaverse built by its users,” said Anton Bernstein, co-founder and CEO of Pocket Worlds. “We’re giving our community members, brands and other community leaders the ability to become landowners in a decentralized space with actual user engagement. Owners will be able to choose how to customize, govern and monetize their Highrise, providing a never-before-seen capacity for income.”
As Highrise World expands, three different parcel types will exist on the map: LAND, individual parcels on which landowners can create their own tower and determine how to distribute rooms to their community; ESTATE, larger domains composed of multiple LAND parcels owned by a single user that will offer more customizability, richer experiences, and higher revenue shares with the platform; and DISTRICT, larger domains composed of multiple LAND parcels owned by multiple users. Districts can be governed as decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs), complete with governance tools that allow owners to make key district decisions. By owning more connected LAND in the form of ESTATES and DISTRICTS, users will have more opportunities to design complex systems for gaming, social, and creative experiences. As Highrise World evolves, Pocket Worlds has future plans to introduce its native currency, the Highrise World Token, a Highrise Gamemaker for the community to develop its own experiences in Highrise World, the Highrise Marketplace and Highrise Assets, enabling users to make their own NFTs that can be traded in the marketplace.
