Fans of Habbo and digital collectors will be able to own a piece of Habbo Hotel
Helsinki, 27th September 2021 – Sulake, an Azerion company, announced today that it will be releasing its first line of NFTs, backed by Ethereum. The NFTs will feature unique randomly generated Habbo avatars that fans of Habbo and digital collectors can purchase and wholly own as part of their portfolios. Sulake is also working on integrating the NFTs into the Habbo experience.
As well as reinvesting the revenues from the sale of the NFTs back into the game, the team behind Habbo has also decided to reserve 1000 NFTs for the community and details of how the NFTs will be distributed will be announced in the near future. The technology behind the NFTs provides tremendous security, giving greater control and a more defined ownership over digital Habbo merchandise, said Valtteri Karu, CEO of Sulake. Fans of Habbo can now own and collect items that embed themselves within Habbo’s history and infrastructure. This is a natural evolution of the collection of digital items that has been an integral part of Habbo since the game first arrived on the internet over 21 years ago.
In addition to the upcoming NFT collection, Sulake has entered into partnership with Offsetra to offset the increased carbon footprint associated with NFT minting, confirming Sulake’s and its parent company Azerion’s strong commitment to ecological stewardship and actions to combat climate change and its impacts. Offsetra will measure the carbon emissions from the NFT minting transactions and then offset these emissions through a variety of ecological initiatives and programs, such as tree planting projects and renewable energy development.
