Habbo Avatar NFTs

Billions of pixels travelling through the metaverse.

A project lovingly put together by pixel artists, NFT enthusiasts and community-minded gamers from all over the planet.

Your chance to own an early, nostalgic, and iconic bit of the internet.

The Habbo Avatar project is all of these things, but for those of you that want a logical, straightforward answer: it’s a collection of 11,600 entirely unique, pixellated avatars.

These collectible avatars are non-fungible tokens, or NFTs, and they exist on the Ethereum blockchain as ERC-721 tokens.

All 11,600 avatars in the collection will be revealed at the same time, latest 5th of October.

Note: we’ve reserved an extra 1,000 avatars for the existing Habbo community. We will announce how we distribute these at a later date. Some will also be distributed internally within the company and some will be distributed in giveaways. See the Discord for more information.

Habbo Avatar traits

Habbo Avatar traits

Each of the 11,600 avatars in the Habbo Avatar collection are programmatically generated from 284 different traits and therefore are 100% unique. Some traits are less likely than others to appear on an avatar, which makes some of them ‘rarer’ than others. (That makes collecting them a bit more fun, we think.) A trait is basically the shoes an avatar is wearing, their skin colour, the hat they’re wearing, their facial features, etc.

Every single avatar we mint is guaranteed to have at least one trait that is completely new to Habbo (there are 74 of these new traits). Below you can see some examples and their rarities. We’ll publish more detailed information about traits in our Discord server.

Roadmap

One of the coolest things about Habbo Avatars is that eventually, we plan to make each one of them usable in-game. When this happens, not only do we plan for them to have an exclusive effect – and a lot of the time, weird and wonderful exclusive items – we also plan to enable active Habbo Club and Builders Club memberships for their owners as a kind of perk.

We put together a very rough roadmap to show what we want to do and when. This is very likely to change, so to get the freshest information make sure to join our Discord server.

The Future

The future

We’re lucky enough to have a ready-made game and an awesome community to boot (actually, we’ve got two games and two awesome communities – Sulake also owns the wonderful Hotel Hideaway). NFTs are a cool bit of tech and making them a part of our games is a seriously exciting prospect.

While we don’t want to talk about our plans in any concrete or confirmatory terms, we do see ourselves moving towards a broader adoption of blockchain technology and NFTs, and the gradual adoption of a play to earn experience in Habbo.

We see play to earn as the future of gaming and we have tons of ideas how we can incorporate this in both Habbo and Hotel Hideaway. Building something like this over the games’ existing technology will be both difficult and time consuming, so it doesn’t make sense for us to commit to anything specific at this stage. We’ll keep both games’ communities and the NFT community updated about any developments.

Our team

Our Team

The Habbo Avatar project is something we planned and executed ourselves, in-house. Members of the Habbo art and developer teams have been involved, as well as staff from Sulake’s community team. We didn’t outsource much of it, and it’s something we see as a long term thing that will grow and eventually contribute to other areas of Habbo, and indeed Hotel Hideaway.

A special mention should go to the project’s mastermind: Muumiopappa. Muumiopappa is a gaming and NFT fanatic based out of Helsinki, Finland. He’s the lead game designer for Habbo’s sister game, Hotel Hideaway, and his background is in data and computer science. He’s also an avid NFT collector, having got his two Bored Apes as they were minted. He also owns a fair amount of other NFTs in various blockchains; including Tezos and Flow. Finally, he is also a huge believer in play to earn mechanics and NFTs in general.

Habbo Avatars has been a really, really fun thing to work on. We’re super excited to see what happens next and where we go next.

Carbon Offset

Offsetting carbon

The Habbo Avatars project is a collection of NFTs that live on the Ethereum network, which is a Proof-of-Work (PoW) blockchain. PoW blockchains require a significant amount of computing power to validate and secure all transactions on the network, and this is an energy-intensive process. Ethereum is currently working to migrate towards a dramatically less energy intensive Proof-of-Stake (PoS) network, which relies on financial collateral in place of computational mining activity. Once Ethereum has transitioned to PoS, it’s estimated that it’ll be 99.8% more energy efficient.

In the meantime, Sulake is taking full accountability for the emissions on behalf of themselves and its users. Together with Offsetra, we’ve developed a carbon neutrality framework for our upcoming NFT launch. With this partnership, Offsetra will help us quantify and offset any carbon emissions associated with the release of the Habbo Avatars NFT collection. We’ll do this by supporting carbon reduction and mitigation projects across the world through the purchase of quantified carbon offset credits. These certified offset projects range from afforestation initiatives, to renewable energy projects (hydro, solar, wind) and conservation projects.

Exactly how much carbon we’ve offset, which projects we’ve invested in, and other more in depth information can be found on our  Offsetra profile page.
