OPSkins made a name for itself by offering a place to purchase and sell video game in-game assets. This marketplace is also the number one bitcoin merchant in existence. Malcolm CasSelle, the founder of WAX, serves as OPSkins’ CIO. People all over the world use OPSkins to purchase skins. OPSkins offers items for games like PUBG and H1Z1. Items are purchased directly through OPSkins, meaning they are a centralized marketplace. Many believe that decentralization is going to change the world so that was the next logical step for the founders of OPSkins.
WAX was created with this in mind. WAX stands for Worldwide Asset eXchange, and they are taking digital asset trading to the next level. OPSkins purchases items directly then selling them for profit. WAX aims to connect users together, enabling them to trade freely and openly. This is assuming they are willing to purchase WAX Tokens. WAX Tokens can be exchanged for a number of different currencies – both digital and physical. They are the primary currency of WAX, and users will require them in order to participate in the trading on WAX.
You could just openly sell your items. There are forums for things like these, but using them would be going against your better judgement. Fraudsters and scam-artists populate these places, making them very hard to do business on. WAX brings a secure network for gamers to use to make purchases of all kinds. Malcolm CasSelle and the rest of WAX even hope to one day see non-gamers use WAX to trade digital assets.
WAX is able to work all over the world due to blockchain. Blockchain brings security to the network while being able to work with any currency.
One of the best features with WAX is its versatility. Anyone who uses WAX can make use of a widget. This widget can overlay any game you play, integrating itself with your gaming experience. You can trade items in game, using WAX Tokens, without ever leaving your game screen or minimizing.
