Earlier in the year, Malcom CasSelle made an interesting statement, of which we will have to wait and see if it turns out true. He says the video game industry and the world of cryptocurrency(bitcoins and other digital currency) have an interwoven future if either want to accelerate forward.

His reasoning for this is simple,cryptocurrency is not limited by geopolitical borders. CasSelle, along with his company OPSkins, have created a new platform for virtual trading called WAX. The platform’s intention is to provide a safe place to trade digital goods. Currently the market is filled with fraudulent merchants and thieves. CasSelle looks to move the industry forward by providing a legitimate market place for trading digital goods using cryptocurrencies similar to bitcoin.

The WAX Token, he hopes will be the future currency used for digital transactions, and is currently in the process of marketing his platform to eSports and gamers. The main selling point being, of course, a safe haven for gamers to conduct their transactions.
