The worldwide leader in selling of in-game virtual assets is OPSkins and Malcolm CasSelle is CIO, who can brag about being the number one bitcoin merchant in the world. Things are not always what they seem in the virtual world, and CasSelle has solved the problem of fraud and fragmentation in online asset trading by creating Wax, (Worldwide Asset eXchange). Wax is a P2 marketplace that allows people to trade virtual assets with the starting point of decentralized smart contracts and blockchain. This widget allows sellers and buyers to safely trade virtual assets with one another.
Malcolm CasSelle started off his career getting his bachelor’s from MIT and his master’s from Stanford University, both in Computer Science. He is trilingual, as in addition to English, he speaks Mandarin and Japanese. His career experience is just as impressive.
CasSelle was CTO and co-founded NewNoir in 1995, and it was one of the first media production websites that focused on Afrocentric culture, and also the first outside company to be accepted into the AOL Greenhouse Program. He then served as senior vice president and adviser to the CEO of PCCW (Pacific Century CyberWorks) a publicly traded company located in Hong Kong.
From the years 2006-2013, Malcolm was the director of Capital Union Investements, located out of Hong Kong, managing privately directed investments into late-stage web companies. During those same years, Malcolm was also top executive with Groupon’s joint partnership with TenCent, a large Chinese instant messaging and gaming company.
In April 2012, CasSelle was CEO for Xfire, which is a world wide social network for video game players. He then went on to serve as CEO of MediaPass in January 2013. In the same year, Malcolm served as CEO and co-founder of Timeline Labs, a company that tracked social media using software. Timeline Labs was bought out by SeaChange International and CasSelle served as Senior Vice President and General Manager of Digital Media.
When February 2016 rolled around, Malcolm moved on and became CTO president at tronc, formerly known as Tribune Publishing, then as of 2017, became president of Wax and CIO of OPSkins. Knowing his varied career moves, his education and experience, it will be exciting to see what the future holds for Malcolm CasSelle.
