Apart from being successful in the centralized market for virtual assets, OPSkins has also launched a new platform known as WAX (Worldwide Asset eXchange) for improved virtual asset trading. WAX was developed on the foundation of blockchain and decentralized settings making it a P2P marketplace whereby sellers and buyers can efficiently and safely trade the virtual assets. With WAX, the company is now free from fraud and fragmentation in the marketplace because the blockchain platform allows all users to transact without the need to click off the game.

WAX tokens allow users to acquire in-game items and provide a smart contract to buy, sell, rent and trade within the virtual asset markets. Malcolm CasSelle who is also the president of WAX believes in the success of the platform saying that the gaming industry will help in the ignition of cryptocurrencies in the mainstream.
