As the largest bitcoin merchant in the world, people have high expectations of Malcolm CasSelle’sOPSkins virtual asset marketplace. With a massive following and a huge amount of transactions processed daily, OPSkins certainly doesn’t disappoint. The platform offers services for buying, selling, and even trading via their global marketplace. With their focus on cutting out third-party interference and the establishment of decentralized transactions, the website has seen significant success across international borders.
But, like any aspiring startup, OPSkins saw its fair share of troubles. One of the biggest hurdles they had to overcome was their prior reliance on centralized platforms for handling transactions, and finally being able to cut out the middleman. A solution was presented by their CIO, Malcolm CasSelle.
The solution was called the worldwide asset exchange, or WAX for short. WAX was a decentralized crypto platform for virtual transactions and was built on cutting-edge smart contract and blockchain technologies to achieve peer-to-peer transactions without significant overhead or outside interference. A decentralized platform meant specifically for virtual transactions was a huge leap forward for OPSkins and helped to push them toward even further success. But perhaps its greatest feature was that it would allow anyone to operate their own personalized marketplace without ever having to worry about securing their transactions, processing payment, or implementing financial infrastructure, as WAX already took care of all of those factors.
The mind behind WAX is none other than Malcolm CasSelle, CIO of OPSkins. An investor and entrepreneur, he has a long history of leading tech companies to success. Additionally acting as an investor in many successful companies, such as Facebook. He possesses degrees in computer science from both MIT and Stanford and speaks multiple languages.
Before his current ventures with OPSkins and the WAX Blockchain, he worked with a litany of tech companies in leadership positions, often driving them towards further success. With experience working at illustrious companies such as tronc, Timeline Labs, SeaChange, and PCCW, he’s uniquely qualified to work in the tech industry, and it shows clearly with the startups he’s helped run himself, such as MediaPass, Xfire, and even a group venture with Tencent and Groupon.
