After the U.S. and Japan, South Korea is the third largest cryptocurrency market in the world. It earlier set an international precedent by being the first country to recognize Bitcoin as a legally recognizable asset. To date, it has become so mainstream that a whole host of South Korean laws have been passed to regulate its use. One big trend in this country is the adoption of cryptocurrency trading by the online gaming industry. One of the leading pioneers in merging the cryptocurrency and gaming worlds is Malcolm CasSelle.
CasSelle began his career by obtaining degrees in Computer Science from MIT and Stanford University. He has led many digital startups throughout his career including MediaPass, Xfire, and Groupon. He founded and led Timeline until it was bought and absorbed by SeaChange International, after which he went to work for them. Just prior to his current position he served as CTO and President of New Ventures. It was here that he oversaw rapid growth properties leveraging digital assets. Throughout his career, he has also been an early investor in such things as Facebook, Zynga, and various blockchain companies.
During his years in Asia, he became fluent in both Japanese and Mandarin. He is currently the CIO of OPSkins, an online gaming asset trading platform. He is also president the decentralized online virtual assets trading platform, Worldwide Asset eXchange. WAX solves the huge problem that keeps traders of different countries from trading with each other because of different languages, trading regulations, currencies, etc. It does this by tokenizing all of a traders’ assets. This tokenization allows traders to start their own online stores and to get instant payments.
This is benefiting more than just WAX. The innovation is revolutionizing the entire world of online trading. And as a result, more and more industries are joining the cryptocurrency club.
