Malcom CasSelle is the chief information officer for OPSkins, which is the global leader in dealing with the buying and selling of in-game virtual assets. OPSkins is a centralized marketplace, but CasSelle and the team at the Worldwide Asset eXchange (WAX) are working to build a decentralized marketplace for virtual assets. This new blockchain platform will be a P2P market where users can trade virtual assets. WAX will help to solve the problems of a centralized marketplace, which are related to security and fragmentation.
Fragmentation takes place due to the fact that there are many different regional and local markets that are isolated because of language and other barriers. Malcom CasSelle and WAX seek to tokenize virtual assets so they can be bought and sold all over the world. Blockchain technology will also enhance security through the confirmation of nodes, and CasSelle believes that this will all bring cryptocurrency into the mainstream.
