Getting to know “Whale” — the MassBit Mascot!
As you may know, the term whale is used to describe an individual or organization that holds a large amount of a particular cryptocurrency, defined as a person that has enough coins or tokens to cause a significant impact on the market prices.
So “Whale” just means you hold a lot of cryptos, right?
Whales aren’t the only sea creature used within the Crypto world. For example, within the Bitcoin ecosystem there is an entire system of sea animals used to represent investors, from the smallest investors who own less than 1 coin (Shrimp), mid-level holders with 100–500 coins (dolphins) to the top holders with over 5k coins (Humpbacks).
So why “Whale”? We believe web3 empowers the user and allows anyone to reach their goals, whatever that may be. Whether a small or big investor, we can all be our own WHALE and take power over our own journey, while influencing others in positive ways. The MassBit community is a positive one, they are supporters and spreaders. They are the ones who help and guide those who are new to blockchain technology, and are inspiring to others!
🐳The representative of MassBit — Wahlee
From the beginning of the MassBit project, we have always clearly and concisely conveyed the team’s core values to grow sustainably with the community. However, it seems there is still something missing, while the image of the infrastructure project is considered academic and boring. “So, why don’t we have a mascot, the iconic character that represents what MassBit is all about — a friend of not only developers, web3 apps, but the normal community member as well! We’ll make it professional and approachable at the same time,” said Kate, Marketing Lead of MassBit.
Through the process of brainstorming with the team, and special thanks to some early community supporters, we decided to choose the Orcinus orca — a kind of whale that gets, the popular figure of the crypto world and has its own characteristics. We think this character is the best representation of Massbit and our supporters.
Hearing about blockchain infrastructure projects might feel complex, academic, or boring for some. We want to change that to bring web3 solutions to mass users! For MassBit, the project will make the operation of the blockchain simplers but also more accessible for everyone. Tech-addicted, simple, friendly, and dynamic are the core values that MassBit has always pursued since day one.
How we created Wahlee
The team took great care to make the Whale show his unique emotions, with a look that truly represented MassBit as their signature character. We started by ketching at least 20 versions from a real whale. Eventually, we decided to use a cartoon style as it better represented the fun aspect of our team and community. Then we went through numerous rounds of feedback until the final draft. “Wahlee the Whale” was born!

MassBit provides fully decentralized solutions for Defi and Web3 App project development. Currently, with three products in the stage of development, MassBit enables DeFi and Web3 App development to be faster, stable, scalable, and more cost-effective.
The powerful ‘glue’ holding together and supporting all the products is the MassBit Verification Protocol, which is based on Proof of Stake. The protocol incentivizes those working within the system to verify each other’s work. The verification of other nodes, gateways, or indexers gives rewards or penalties for the mistakes to each individual or entity. From that, the protocol ensures the whole network’s health.
