Avid online gamers are familiar with Malcolm CasSelle and OPSkins. OPSkins is a global leader for in-game asset sales, and CasSelle is the president of Worldwide Asset eXchange. CasSelle is also the CIO for OPSkins where he has served since 2017. As an investor, entrepreneur, and executive CasSelle has been instrumental to both OPSkins success and the creation of WAX.
WAX is an innovative player-to-player trading platform that opeates within a decentralized market. It is powered by blockchain technology and is at the forefront of the most recent revolution hitting cryptocurrency. Blockchains are prescribed by many experts as a game-changer for cryptocurrency, and CasSelle is championing its cause in the gaming world. WAX operates within OPSkins current network of games and offers players the unique ability to garner a return of investment.
What makes WAX special is its utilization of blockchain tech which it uses to provide security. It not only protects players from fraud but cuts out meddling middle-man companies that slow virtual transactions to a crawl. CasSelle was an early investor in Bitcoin and has been an ardent supporter of cryptocurrency since its inception. Under his guidance OPSkins became the largest Bitcoin merchant on the planet, and now he is attempting to create the same success with blockchains.
Malcolm CasSelle has been a part of the online world since the dial-up days. A graduate of both MIT and Stanford with both bachelor’s and master’s degrees in computer science, CasSelle started his first company in 1995. The company was called NetNoir and was one of the first media production sites to grace the web. CasSelle went on to serve in high-level position for a variety of companies before coming to OPSkins. One of his most notable accomplishments was his participation in Tencent’s JV with Groupon.
CasSelle’s work as an investor are almost as notable as his executive resume. He was not only an early investor in Bitcoin, but also an early investor for Facebook and Zynga. WAX is his next gut move and in the wake of blockchain’s hype it may prove to be a successful venture to chance.
