How it works
As of March 2, 2010, players must pay 1 extra coin to buy Habbo Exchange. The new pricing is as follows:
- 1 credit Bronze Coin now costs 2 coins.
- 5 credit Silver Coin now costs 6 coins.
- 10 credit Gold Coin now costs 11 coins.
- 20 credit Sack of Coins now costs 21 coins.
- 50 credit Gold Bar now costs 51 coins.
Because of the new tax, players wanting to buy Habbo Exchange must have at least 1 extra coin in order to afford it.
The tax has received very high criticism by the majority of the community, saying it is pointless buying Habbo Exchange if you needed to pay 1 extra coin. Many groups have been created to "boycott" this tax; some of those groups has reached over 1000 members.
