The History of the Madstar: Hback Whales Club NFT Collection
“We have so much planned and it kills us to not reveal everything at once.”
The welcome announcement for this project was made on February 10th, 2022 over the Sigle.io. The first digital representation shared was this Poseidon whale
They even threw some shade at the Space Whales NFT project: “Dear whales, sit tight as we finish the last details. We are so excited with what we’re gonna come out with because we believe it will stand out in STX NFTs. Truth is, after the last whales project in STX – Space Whales – be assured we are here to clear the name for whale NFTs in STX.“
Collaboration announcements with other Stacks NFT Projects were announced later that week, including one with Phases of Satoshi:

That would be Hback Whales Club #1020, the Posiedon Whale. It is not for sale at this time.
Which Hback Whales Club Bitcoin NFT is the Dopest IHMO?
Give me #306, with Green Skeleton attributes, which is just a touch doper than the Blue Skeleton version. Easily distinguished from any other in the collection. Love how the green pops and the intestines you can see at the very bottom under the ribcage is a nice touch.
How Far Along Are They on Their Roadmap?
Hback Whales Club has a pretty detailed roadmap. Their next objective seems to be their second, which is their “Save the Whales Plan” reveal. They move from there into Web3 Games, expansion of their Madstar universe, a clothing/merch line and a DAO, which they are working in concert with the KCV team from the Marbling NFT.
What Utility Do These NFT’s Have?
Like most of the Stacks NFT’s I have covered so far, the utility, which will come as they reach objectives on their roadmap, simply isn’t online yet.

Are Hback Whales Club NFT’s a Good Investment?
While none of this is to be construed as financial advice (please see the website disclaimer), anyone who reads this blog or follows my Twitter already knows that I am very bullish on the outlook for Stacks cryptocurrency, the underlying blockchain for Tiger Force Bitcoin NFT’s.
NFT’s on Stacks are absolutely exploding since their debut in 2021. In addition to their recent listing on Coinbase, the Stacks ecosystem is best represented on OKCoin, where you can get exposure to Stacks, Arkadiko Finance, and CityCoins like MiamiCoin and NYCCoin. Stacks is the protocol that brings d’Apps, NFT’s and Ethereum-like utility to Bitcoin. I am a believer that any exposure to Stacks comes with tremendous future upside potential. So, while everyone should do their own research before investing in any NFT or cryptocurrency, I think the future of most NFT projects on Stacks hold considerable promise.
