More than 5 million in-game digital items are listed for sale in exchange for WAX Tokens on OPSkins.com.
Items ranging in price from pennies to tens of thousands of dollars can be purchased using WAX Tokens, and sellers can accept the earnings from their item sales in WAX. Earned WAX Tokens can then be used to purchase other items on OPSkins or cashed out to an ERC-20 compatible wallet.
Even at 5 million items, WAX is just getting started.
WAX is the cryptocurrency designed to revolutionize the $50 billion digital items trading market within video games by enabling gamers to trade faster, cheaper, and easier.
In recent weeks, OPSkins has increased the number of items available for purchase and sale with WAX Tokens, including Steam based games Armello, Depth, Day of Infamy, Golf with your Friends, Battalion 1944, and Ballistic Overkill. OPSkins has also announced the upcoming addition of several ERC-721 token items for ETH blockchain-based games including Etherbots, Fishbank, and CryptoBots. These items, called Crypto Collectibles, have been available on OPSkins since 2017 beginning with CryptoKitties.
As a result of WAX being integrated with the world’s largest in-game items trading marketplace, the increased awareness of WAX, and the addition of new games, a total of more than 5,000,000 items can now be purchased using WAX.
After launching the token in December 2017, WAX Tokens were immediately accepted as a form of payment and cashout method on OPSkins.com, the world’s largest marketplace for trading in-game digital items. The team behind OPSkins are the same as the team behind WAX, and have used their knowledge and expertise of the cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology, the video games industry, and digital item trading to create the token and platform that will bring cryptocurrencies into the mainstream video gaming industry.
WAX is still in its infancy, as it’s currently an ERC-20 token, but that’s the not 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.
According to a recent study of 1,000 US-based video game players, 75% of respondents said they wish they could exchange their virtual goods for currency that they could use to buy/sell on other platforms — which is what the future of WAX will bring them.
