Malcolm Casselle is the CIO of Opskins, a company that boasts of both leading the world in sales of in-game assets and being the top merchant of bitcoins across the globe.
Users of Opskins make frequent transactions from one country to another through micro-payments. This fact, along with the market size and demand by consumers for Opskings products has the company perfectly positioned to facilitate a decentralized protocol.
At the moment Opskins is the leading centralized marketplace selling virtual assets but this method of operations can at times be limited. Decentralized virtual asset marketplaces are no doubt the next step in the evolutionary process of the industry.
To meet the growing need for decentralized trading of virtual assets, Malcolm Casselle and the developers at Opskins have created a platform known as the World Asset Exchange. Wax is a peer to peer marketplace that uses a blockchain foundation and smart contracts that are decentralized to buyers and sellers of gaming assets in a convenient and efficient manner.
WAX has effectively addressed the two major problems with the selling of virtual assets which are fraud and fragmentation. WAX is able to accomplish this by using a single widget that is enabled with blockchain technology that makes it possible for users of the platform to make purchases while continuing to enjoy the game.
