Malcolm CasSelle, OPSkins, and WAX
In January of 2018, Malcolm CasSelle, CIO, and his online digital marketplace, OPSkins, has been recognized as not only a global leader in virtual game assets, but the number one bitcoin merchant on the world. With the increased use of micropayments, this company was a prime candidate for the decentralized protocol. Due to OPSkins size, there were limitations to its technical capabilities, and because of the restrictions, the next step in its growth is to make a decentralized marketplace for its virtual assets.
To facilitate this growth, creators of OPSkins launched the Worldwide Asset EXchange. Known as WAX, Worldwide Asset EXchange is a person to person marketplace that solves fraud and fragmentation, two of the most significant problems in the virtual asset markets. It operates through a blockchain enabled widget that enables the purchase and selling of virtual goods without shutting off a game resulting in more efficient exchanges. The Worldwide Asset EXchange platform can bring millions of new participants by allowing traders to set up their virtual marketplace on one decentralized platform. This beneficial platform includes the use of instant payments, trust and security services to their clients.
