Malcolm CasSelle is the man behind the newest entrant into the world of video game asset trading. He is the founder and President of WAX, but he is also the CIO of OPSkins, a company with a similar business plan.
WAX and OPSkins are both in the business of providing video game assets to customers. OPSkins is the leading supplier of rare skins and other items. Customers can find items for games such as CS:GO, PUBG, and DOTA 2 on OPSkins.
WAX aims to take the creativity of OPSkins and expand on it. Instead of simply being a provider of select goods for select games, WAX will be a decentralized marketplace where consumers can sell anything they want. WAX doesn’t only want to accommodate the gaming industry. Malcolm CasSelle also wants traders of non video game digital assets to use his platform. CasSelle even welcomes his competitors to try out WAX.
While most cryptocurrencies are being used for questionable reasons like illegally activities and investments, Malcolm CasSelle believes the future of crypto is the video games. “The gaming industry will ignite the world of cryptocurrency to the mainstream,” Malcolm CasSelle said.
Malcolm CasSelle earned his expertise on programming and tech at MIT and Stanford, earning a Computer Science degree at each school.
CasSelle was an early pioneer of the internet, creating NetNoir, an Afrocentric culture and discussion website. Netnoir was eventually accepted as a part of the AOL Greenhouse Program.
CasSelle has been a part of two Hong-Kong based companies: Capital Union Investments and Pacific Century Cyber Works.
His prior experience in the video game industry is with Tencent, an investment company that has invested heavily in the video game industry, and Xfire, a client that allowed users to chat about and stream video games. Now, with WAX, CasSelle has stepped even further into the video game world.
