Malcolm Casselle, A Modern Day Entrepreneur
February 27, 2018
OPSkins leads the world when it comes to sales of in-game virtual assets. The creators of OPSkins recently launched WAX, which is a new blockchain platform they’re using to evolve the way virtual asset trading works. Malcolm Casselle is the president of WAX, and he believes it will be a big step towards giving the world of cryptocurrency a more mainstream appeal.
Being the president of WAX and the CIO of OPSkins, Malcolm Casselle is a first rate entrepreneur with a history rich in business. Having both a bachelor’s degree from MIT and a master’s degree from Stanford University, his knowledge of Computer Science is clearly shown on this business-growing veteran’s resume.
From his start in 1995 as a co-founder of NetNoir, it’s no understatement to say he’s been on a path of success from the very start. His founded website, which was based on Afrocentric culture, was the first outside company to be accepted into the AOL Greenhouse Program. In the following years from 1998-2002 Malcolm was a co-founder and Senior Vice president of Pacific Century CyberWorks, which went from startup to $38 billion market cap in a mere 18 months.
His list of mounting successes in the business world begin to lean more towards the gaming world as time goes on. In April 2012 he became CEO of Xfire, a global social network core for video game players. Not even a year later he also began serving as CEO of MediaPass, which is an online paywall solution that is used to create subscription-based revenues for digital content. That very same year, he co-founded yet another company called Timeline Labs where he once again served as CEO. When the company was acquired by SeaChange International in December 2014, he then went on to serve as Senior Vice President and General Manager of Digital Media for SeaChange International. His most recent business venture, which may very well change the trading of virtual assets as we know it, began in 2017, when he became the President of Worldwide Asset eXchange.
