OPSkins CIO Malcolm CasSelle has overseen substantial growth in the virtual asset market. As demand has increased for cross-border trading of in-game assets limitations in centralized technology have become clear. OPSkins creators are unveiling WAX (World Asset eXchange). WAX will utilize the decentralizing effect of a simple blockchain-enabled widget. WAX users will buy and sell virtual goods by conversion into WAX Tokens. This allows for seamless transactions that are safe due to the blockchain-enabled widget.
Malcolm CasSelle has never strayed from his roots in computer science. He studied computer science to earn a bachelor’s degree at MIT and a master’s degree at Stanford University. He has put this education to good use as an entrepreneur and leader in the digital industry.
In 1995 CasSelle co-founded NetNoir, a digital media production company offering magazine-style content. Here he successfully uplifted Afrocentric culture for consumption by everyone. In 1998 he worked on the startup team that founded Pacific Century CyberWorks.
