Malcolm Casselle Says Cryptocurrency Is Working Well For Gamers

Posted by eastcoop on

Worldwide Asset eXchange (WAX) president and OPSkins chief information officer Malcolm Casselle is ready to see how cryptocurrency merges into the regular world now that it’s become a phenomena in the gaming world. OPSkins has been selling Bitcoin from a centralized marketplace for several years now, but there’s a lot that they want to see happen with a decentralized peer-to-peer system that WAX is bringing in, and it will help cut costs in areas that gaming companies and cryptocurrency dealers have had to pay high. What WAX is doing is making it possible for the exchange of virtual assets to happen without the need for middlemen and with verification algorithms that ensure transactions are not fraudulent. The eSports niche has been one of the biggest WAX beneficiaries thanks to the way new blockchain-based smart contracts are used.

Malcolm Casselle has only been with OPSkins and WAX for only a year and is still making a relatively new endeavor to make cryptocurrency the new legal tender. But he has been in the IT industry since getting his computer science bachelor’s and master’s degrees from MIT and Stanford. The first executive IT position he held was as CTO of NetNoir which created various media productions featuring foreign cultures. Casselle then traveled to Hong Kong and worked with a team of executives for a telco provider known as Pacific Century CyberWorks for a few years, and then joined an investment firm, Capital Union Investments where his primary target investments were late-stage web-based companies.

Malcolm Casselle started looking into mass media streaming and entertainment when he became the CEO of two Chinese gaming ventures in Tencent and Xfire. He increased his interest in the gaming industry when he funded Timeline Labs which was later merged with Seachange International. Just prior to joining OPSkins and founding WAX, Casselle was a venture capital investor in Tribune Publishing which changed its name to Tronc.

Greg Aziz’s Staunch Leadership With National Steel Car

Posted by eastcoop on

Gregory James Aziz is the CEO, President and Chairman of National Steel Car. Unlike what the name hints at, National Steel Car is not a vehicle company. It’s actually a freight train engineering and manufacturing company. National Steel Car is located in Hamilton, Ontario.

 

Greg Aziz is a native of London, Ontario. He majored in economics at the University of Western Ontario. In 1971, he joined his family wholesale foods company, Affiliated Foods. While Greg was there, the company grew international over the next 16 years. Greg J. Aziz’s leadership was in part thanks to his many successful investment banking opportunities in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s. By 1994, he was able to organize the purchase of National Steel Car.

 

Almost immediately after Greg started to work with National Steel Car Company, he turned it from a top Canadian company into North America’s leading freight manufacturer. During that time, National Steel Car expanded its manufacturing production from just over 3,5000 freight cars annually to over 12,000 annually by the turn of the century. National Steel Car had only about 600 employees at the time that Gregory J Aziz started. Since then, it has grown to approximately 3,000.

 

To this day, National Steel Car remains the only ISO-certified railroad company. They have consistently won the TTX SECO award since 1996. They also sponsor different charity organizations such as The Salvation Army, United Way, and Aquarius Theatre. Greg and his wife personally sponsor the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair.

Aside from National Steel Car, Greg also serves as CEO at National Industries Inc. National Industries also manufactures freight cars in North America. It has been in business since 1912 and is located in Hamilton, Canada.

Greg Aziz never gives up. He is the type of person who only focuses on his vision and does not seem to focus much on setbacks. He is not the of person who is satisfied at only a little success. He never thinks anything but big and he never stops until the goals are reached. As long as he remains the leader of National Steel Cars, the future looks very bright for both Greg and the company.
