Helsinki, FI - April 21st, 2022 – Sulake, part of the digital entertainment and media platform Azerion today announced its intention to expand Habbo with a brand new metaverse-based hotel to launch with full Web 3.0 integration later this year. With a focus on NFTs, play-to-earn and tokenomics, Habbo X is a distinct space where the Habbo community and NFT communities can integrate, mingle, own their rooms and create their own monetized, play-to-earn games. Habbo X will become the tenth Habbo hotel currently in operation and arrives nearly a decade after Habbo’s last hotel launch in 2012, Habbo Turkey, a fully localised version for Turkish-speakers.  

Habbo has always been at the forefront of creating virtual communities for social gamers and creators, and we want to spearhead this with the adoption of the new blockchain technologies,” said Valtteri Karu, CEO of Sulake. “Our goal is to keep Habbo as a social pioneer of the endless possibilities available in the Web 3.0 metaverse.”  

“The launch of Habbo X will come as a result of our efforts to introduce new and existing Habbo residents to the innovative features made possible due to Web 3.0 technology,” said Jurriaan van Teunenbroek, Vice President of Games & Content at Azerion. “With this new technology, we can reward our Habbo players and content creators in a way that was not possible before.”
