Malcom CasSelle is CIO of OPSKins, which is an international leader in facilitating sales of virtual items from video games. While the company’s platform is extremely popular, there is only so much that a centralized marketplace can offer, and OPSKins has decided to launch a blockchain project in the form of the Worldwide Asset eXchange (WAX). This new project will allow virtual asset trading through its own blockchain technology ran platform which is decentralized.

Malcom CasSelle is happy to be a part of a company that is solving the largest issues facing the virtual asset market, and the first of these is uniting a fragmented system. Most platforms have serious restrictions that only allow players to exchange virtual goods with people who live in their own region or that speak the same language. On top of this, security issues are rampant, but a blockchain driven platform solves this. Instead of trading with Fiat currency, players can tokenize their virtual assets and instantly sell or buy gaming items from other players. WAX is also making the virtual trading world a more secure place.
