The Kalao Citadel

The Citadel is Kalao’s social sandbox — a place for you to meet other players, chat via text and voice, explore NFT galleries and interact with your favorite protocols. It’s the perfect location to have community (or private) events, showcase NFTs or to socialize with others.

The Kalao Citadel will grow gradually — more locations, social activities and economic features are being actively worked on. For example, you will be able to play minigames with and against other players.

Our vision for the Citadel is to provide the NFT community with a crypto-native platform to connect and experience NFTs together. This means: User ownership enabled by NFTs, global & permissionless payment rails via cryptocurrencies, and community-driven creation.

Join the community in public spaces of the Citadel anytime and participate in or host special events, such as DJ sets, AMAs, and NFT galleries. Events can be public or private (gated by password).

Self-hosted events can have up to 5 concurrent users. To allow for more guests, we are happy to set up a server for you. Just contact us!


Shops are your own, customizable, personal space in the metaverse. They allow you to display your NFTs, build a showroom and access Avalanche dApps.

We are proud to have 15 partners who will open shops in the Citadel.

  • Chikn
  • Ava Labs
  • Madskullz
  • RaptorZ
  • Ogerz
  • Ryu
  • Avalaunch
  • BenQi

We also invite you to the special Chikn gallery we created.

Keep your ears and eyes open for a chance to own a shop within the Citadel in the future.


To express yourself in the metaverse, you can customize the body, head, clothes and accessories of your avatar. At the start you will be able to customize assets from a pre-defined catalog, but later on anyone will be able to create and sell their own 3D assets.


The Citadel launches with PC and VR support. We developed a new skeleton system which makes movements in VR as well as on PC seamless.
