WAX Company, founded by Malcolm CasSelle

Video Games are a large part of modern culture, and the business opportunities in the industry are immense. Even subdivisions of the larger industry have shown that they can be worth billions of dollars. One of the most lucrative of these subdivisions of the video game industry is virtual gaming gear. With a worth of around 50 billion dollars, the market is a very promising industry. This net worth is made up of sites and platforms used by gamers for the purpose of exchanging skins, a digital asset for online gamers. Skins refer to an audio or graphical accent that changes the appearance or sound of a player’s avatar in-game or some accessory for in game usage. Trading these online assets has become a large part of online gaming, with many gamers chomping at the bit to get the rarest of skins available. However, as this industry grows in size, so too does it’s vulnerability. Malcolm CasSelle caught wind of this fact ealr on and has started WAX in order to meet the inevitable demand.

WAX is an exchange platform the is decentralized, and in doing so is attempting to correct many of the security flaws in modern trading platforms. It has already done a good job, raising consumer confidence in the platforms. The end goal for WAX is to make the online trading world safe for players, allowing their transactions to be unmolested by hackers. The company has also designed their security systems to be very impressive preventing hackers from accessing the online trades. This system is called WAX blockchain security, and has raised the confidence of gamers when it comes to trading. It also eliminates transactions fees normally present in other trades, further increasing gamer sentiment towards WAX.

CasSelle himself has led the development team as the president of WAX and has history in cryptocurrency. He has been an advocate for cryptocurrency for a long time and has made his fortune as a digital entrepreneur. He was the cofounder of OPSkins, later founding WAX to build on the success of OPSkins. CasSelle is now the CIO of OPSkins as well as the former president and CTO of Tribune publishing.

WAX has already made a name for itself with its new ideas and the public acclaim it has brought to cryptocurrency as a whole, and will continue to do so in the near and far future.

Shervin Pishevar says China is rapidly pulling ahead of U.S. in major capabilities

Shervin Pishevar is one of the better-known venture capitalists throughout the world. Concentrating largely in the tech space, Shervin Pishevar has been behind the creation of some of the most iconic tech companies of the last decade, including Virgin Hyperloop, Uber and Airbnb.

He is also a sort of public intellectual, running one of the most-followed Twitter feeds in Silicon Valley. With more than 100,000 subscribers, Shervin Pishevar has a following for his multitudinous areas of interest. Among his followers figure some of the major thought leaders in areas ranging from technology to economics.

One of the topics on which Shervin Pishevar has often held forth through his Twitter feed is the increasingly uncompetitive stance of the U.S. economy as a whole. Shervin Pishevar asserts that the ever-increasingly competitive nature of the global economy means that the negative direction in which U.S. competitiveness is heading is a prescription for disaster.

As an example, Pishevar points to a construction project that was recently carried out in a Chinese city. A train station was built in just nine hours that was capable of handling thousands of passengers per day. Pishevar says that the incredible rate of completion on projects like this demonstrates that China has an enormous competitive advantage in certain areas of the economy.

Meanwhile, he says that such a project in a U.S. city of an equivalent size would be more likely to take nine years than nine hours. Pishevar says that the ability of China to outcompete America on projects like this means that the former country will be able to continue to radically expand its infrastructure and capabilities at a pace that will put it in the global driver’s seat within a few more years.

With China as the unquestioned global economic power, America will have a difficult time ahead. Pishevar says that Americans should expect to lose reserve currency status for the dollar sometime starting in the next decade. He says that this is inevitable, and that de-dollarization across the globe will signal the beginning of America’s terminal descent into the Third World.

How Louis Chenevert Came To Lead United Technologies Corporation

Louis Chenevert grew up in a middle-class family in Montreal, Quebec. He says he had a pretty normal childhood and became interested in business affairs and being an entrepreneur early on in life. He knew that if he maintained a focus on his career he could rise to great heights in the business world and so he made that his priority. He attended the University of Montreal’s HEC Montreal Business School and earned a degree in production management.

After graduating from college he was hired by General Motors. The person who hired him, Guy Hachey, saw he had a lot of potential and gave him the opportunity to manage this company’s Montreal production line. Hachey says that Louis Chenevert wasn’t much younger than himself and every time he rose to a new position he would hire Chenevert to replace him in his former position.

After working for GM for well over a decade Louis Chenevert left the auto industry behind and joined the aerospace industry. His first job in this industry was at Pratt & Whitney Canada. In 1996 he joined this company’s parent firm, Pratt & Whitney, at the executive position. His success here led to him joining this firm’s parent company, United Technologies Corporation, one of the biggest firms in the aviation industry. It is also a leader in other areas of the manufacturing industry. He eventually became the chief executive officer and chairman of the board.

One of Louis Chenevert’s biggest accomplishments was making the decision to invest in the next generation of plane engines known as the GTF engine. He says he knew this engine would revolutionize the industry given all of its advantages over prior generation engines. It was more fuel efficient, quieter, and didn’t cost as much to maintain. He invested $10 billion into this engine which is now used by over 14 commercial airlines around the world. He spent six years as the head of UTC before deciding to retire from this position. He is credited with getting this company on track and dramatically improving the processes they use to manufacture their products.
