As we’ve mentioned in the past, OPSkins, the world’s #1 marketplace for trading in-game digital items is the first customer of WAX. Why is that important? Because OPSkins processes more than 2 million transactions per week, which exposes WAX to millions of customers trading digital items around the globe.
WAX is now the cheapest, fastest, and easiest way to trade on OPSkins.com. You can read more about how WAX is used on OPSkins over at the OPSkins Blog.
As previously mentioned, we’re issuing two versions of WAX Tokens over the next year, both of which will be tradeable, have value, and a unique purpose. The first version is an ERC-20 WAX Token distributed in December 2017,which will be used to buy and sell items on OPSkins.com or thousands of other game sites like Twitch, Ubisoft or PUBG, and enables high-speed, low-cost, cross-border transactions of any amount. But this isn’t the final product. The final version of WAX will be a custom blockchain token, already being built and available in 2018. That WAX Platform is what facilitates all the of the unique features including buying and selling items through the use of smart contracts, sharing fee income among multiple parties, pegged asset contracts managing volatility, pledging to guilds, enabling exchange widgets, and more.
More announcements will be coming out over the next few days, so stay tuned!
