As the largest global bitcoin merchant, OPSkins has had a lot of expectations set for it and is forced to handle a tremendous number of transactions on a daily basis, while still maintaining fast transaction times with low overhead. The world leader in virtual asset sales, primarily dealing with video game items, OPSkins has quickly risen to the top by offering borderless international transactions and little to no third party involvement. However, they’ve also begun to distance themselves even further from centralization via their own crypto token.
WAX, which is the acronym for the worldwide asset exchange platform; a blockchain platform based on smart contract technologies, and created for the sole purpose of handling virtual asset transactions efficiently. Acting as a peer-to-peer asset marketplace, WAX provides its users with specialized tokens and a decentralized core that allows users from around the globe to use it without any interference from outside sources or centralized banks. However, one of the most impressive features of WAX is that it allows anyone to develop and manage their own virtual asset marketplace without the need for investments in transfer security, infrastructure, or even payment processing, as all of these factors are handled by WAX.
As the President of WAX, and the CIO of OPSkins, Malcolm CasSelle brings a number of skills to the table. With experience in blockchains and crypto, degrees from MIT and Stanford, and an impressive career in the tech industry, he’s more than qualified to create his own crypto network, which is exactly what he’s done with WAX.
Before he worked with OPSkins and WAX, he had taken on leadership roles within numerous startups, beginning as the co-founder of PCCW, a telecom company in Hong Kong, then going on to lead successful startups such as Xfire and MediaPass. Later on, he served as CEO of Timeline Labs until it was acquired by SeaChange Int’l, after which he served as the SCP and GM of Digital Media there. Eventually going on to serve as President and CTO of Tribune Publishing, and, finally CIO of OPSkins, after which he created the WAX platform.
