Malcolm CasSelle is currently serving as CIO of OPSkin and President of WAX (Worldwide Asset eXchange) which are leaders in the sale of virtual assets in gaming and eSports. WAX was developed to use blockchain technology to make a more secure and centralized arena for trading virtual assets. WAX allows users to tokenize their assets to buy, sell and trade on their platform. This centralizes and streamlines the process of trading virtual goods and eliminates issues with language barriers and payment processing that other platforms run into. This common currency also allows WAX to cut out the need for a middleman to convert currency. WAX also tackles the issue of fraud by using the blockchain smart contracts. This is a secure way to buy and sell virtual goods without the use of a third party which drives up the cost. Malcolm CasSelle believes his platform WAX and the use of cryptocurrency in the gaming world will help drive cryptocurrency to the mainstream.
Malcolm CasSelle holds Computer Science degrees from both MIT and Stanford University. He began his career as co-founder of PCCW a Hong Kong based publicly traded telecom that is now valued at over $35 billion.
