Malcolm Casselle: The Gaming Industry’s Ignition Key

OPSkins is a world-wide leader of sales for in-game simulated assets. The originators of OPSkins are developing a new blockchain platform. This platform is entitled WAX which stands for Worldwide Asset Exchange. WAX will serve as a peer-to-peer marketplace for trading of virtual assets. This new platform is quite innovative because it solves two of the most widespread problems in the virtual asset market which are fragmentation and fraud. WAX allows users to trade virtual goods without having to separate from their game. In addition, the new platform eliminates fraud by “removing the middle man”. This process ensures that goods are delivered to buyers and that the cost of the transactions are kept low.
