NFTC gates are a special type of item that allow owners to control access to specific areas of their room. They offer fantastic utility for room owners, enabling them to set an NFTC requirement for entry, thereby helping them to monetize their building and hosting skills within Habbo X. Note that these gates will be placeable in Habbo, but will not work there.
In this article, we’ll refer to the activity or game the NFTC gate owner is hosting as a “game”. We’ll refer to the fee charged to use the gates as the “NFTC gate fee”.
NFTC gate modes
NFTC gates have two modes owners can select: regular mode and prize pool mode.
1. Regular mode
In this mode, players pay a specified amount of NFTC to pass through the gate and participate in the game. The gate owner receives all the NFTC collected, except for the NFTC gate fee which is deducted before the owner gets their cut. More information on the NFTC gate fee is provided below.
2. Prize pool mode
In this mode, all NFTC paid by players is funnelled into a prize pool. The owner is able to determine what percentage of the prize pool they get as the owner after the NFTC gate fee is deducted (this is called the “owner’s cut”). The rest of the NFTC are awarded to the winner of the game.
- The gate owner manually picks one winner to receive the prize pool NFTC after the game they’re hosting finishes.
- The owner's cut cannot be altered after one person has paid to get through the gate.
- The actual NFTC payout to the winner’s wallet should only take seconds. The winner will receive NFTC, not NFTC tokens.
- Players can only enter the gate once per game.
- The NFTC gate fee is deducted from the total prize pool amount before the winner and owner cut is determined. See below for an example of the prize pool mode in action.
An example of the prize pool mode in action
The room owner sets their cut to 20%, which means the winner of the activity will get 80%. From the total price pool of 100 NFTC, 5 NFTC is deducted for the fee, making the prize pool 95 NFTC in total. So, the winner would get 80% of the prize pool (76 NFTC) and the room owner would get 20% (19 NFTC).
The NFTC gate fee
Currently, the NFTC gate fee is fixed at 5%, although this may change in the future.
It's essential to note that the 5% fee is rounded up. For example, if your gate is set to regular mode with an entry fee of 1 NFTC, you won't receive any NFTC because the minimum amount deducted is 1 NFTC. However, if you charge 2 NFTC, you will receive 1 NFTC. Similarly, a 3 NFTC entry fee would yield 2 NFTC per participant, and so on.
When prize pool mode is enabled, the Habbo X fee is also rounded up, but it is deducted from the total prize pool amount. After deducting the 5% fee and after the game finishes, the owner receives their share, and the remaining NFTC from the prize pool is awarded to the winner of the game.
Acquiring NFTC gates
Gambling in Habbo X is not permitted
To ensure players don’t use the gates to gamble in Habbo X, we’ll be monitoring the use of them. As made clear in the community rules, you risk being banned from the game permanently if you gamble.
We reserve the right to change the gates' functionality and prevent their use with items that can create random results.
