Malcolm CasSelle and OPSkins Put Faith in Blockchain Tech with WAX Platform

Malcolm CasSelle and OPSkins have just dipped their collective toes in the blockchain pool. CasSelle recently announced the formation of new P2P trading network WAX, which stands for Worldwide Asset eXchange. The platform will use blockchain technology to create a safe trading environment between gamers. It will use a network of games OPSkins provides in-game asset sales for. WAX will also use tokenization to create cross-game trading allowing players to actually sell their digital wares. This provides the first real return of investment to gamers. According to CasSelle this is just the push the gaming market needs.

Many experts including CasSelle have always viewed the gaming industry as the force to mainstream cryptocurrency. After all, gamers have used digital wares for years. The only thing holding the market back is its limited centralized platform. Decentralized platforms are too risky because of fraud and fragmentation. Blockchain tech neutralizes both threats opening decentralized markets up. This in turn takes away limitations allowing cross-game trading. The market this could create is too big for the gaming industry to ignore. If they began successfully using blockchains the tech will filter into other markets and cryptocurrency will go mainstream. At least this is what CasSelle foresees as the future. As the current CIO of OPSkins and president of WAX, CasSelle has a lot of interest vested in this subject.

Malcolm CasSelle received a bachelor’s degree in Computer Sciences for MIT, and then earned his master’s in computer sciences from Stanford. He formed his first company, NetNoir, in 1995 finding success immediately. His successful career is highlighted with many other virtual start-ups, and key executive positions in many digital companies. He arrived at OPSkins in 2017. His work has aided OPSkins in becoming a global seller of in-game asset sales. CasSelle is also an early stage investor in Bitcoin and Facebook.

CasSelle has always been ringside for innovation. His instincts have served the companies he worked for well, and they continue to benefit OPSkins. CasSelle’s interest in Bitcoin led the company in becoming the largest Bitcoin merchant worldwide. Now they take the next step with WAX.

The Sky Is The Limit At GreenSky Credit

GreenSky Credit originated at much the same time as many of the other tech start ups in Silicon Valley. The company is located in Atlanta, Georgia, and it operates online to help provide consumers with online loan access. David Zalik is the current Chief Executive Officer of the firm.

David Zalik is one of the co-founders of GreenSky Credit. The company has been in existence since 2006. He is a savvy entrepreneur, and this technology financial startup company rapidly became very popular and very successful. They have arranged loans to homeowners for home improvements and other purposes. By 2012, the company reportedly arranged approximately $5 billion in loans for its customers. GreenSky Credit works with numerous federally insured financial lending institutions that provide the funding.

Unlike many other tech startups that offer their employees free lunches and a host of other extra benefits, David does not run his company in the same way. He thinks differently in many ways, and that way of thinking has proven to be a huge financial step for the company. While some other CEO’s opt to maintain their companies as privately owned entities for different reasons, David Zalik thought differently. He saw the potential of taking the company public, and the company did go public in May of 2018. It has been reported by Forbes that David is a billionaire, with paper assets of approximately $2.5 billion.

David has an interesting background and early life before his success story at GreenSky Credit. He grew up in the United States as a toddler and onward. His family moved from Israel to Alabama when he was 4 years old. From his young days, he was always fascinated with the computer, and he displayed a great aptitude for learning. He achieved an exceptionally high testing score at age 12. He was then invited by Auburn University to enroll in some courses there. His father worked at the University. He never attended high school, and instead he went on to begin his studies full time at the University at the age of 14.

Stream Energy’s Philanthropic Efforts Featured on Dallas Patch

Stream Energy, a major supplier of energy services based in Dallas Texas and a long-time participant in corporate philanthropy, was featured on Patch earlier this year for their company’s philanthropic efforts through the founding of Stream Cares, a dedicated corporate charity foundation that put a formal face on Stream Energy’s long history of ongoing philanthropic activities.

Featured in the Patch’s article are many examples of Stream Cares’ more recent philanthropic efforts. After Hurricane Harvey, Stream Cares partnered with Hope Supply Co. to help alleviate the suffering of those who lost their homes. While many corporations simply throw money at a problem and walk away, Stream Energy decided to utilize their charity foundation to get far more involved and provide a positive experience for those affected, and particularly for the children affected by the storm. In order to do so, Stream Cares covered the cost for more than 1,000 children to attend the annual event Splash for Hope.

In another tragedy, when multiple tornadoes struck Northern Texas before Christmas in 2016, Stream Energy associates actively teamed up with the Salvation Army to raise funds for those in need of assistance. The company then matched the funds that had been raised to double the amount gathered from donations.

However, Stream Energy does not only assist during natural disasters and tragedies. Ongoing efforts to support our military and veterans is also a priority to them. One example of those efforts is Operation Once in a Lifetime, where Stream Cares stepped in to provide financial and moral support for veterans and donated transportation for the less fortunate veterans to be able to attend a special lunch at a popular Texas restaurant. Stream Cares then co-hosted the American Girl Doll Experience for 10 daughters of military members and stream associates got personally involved by supporting the girls through the event.

While Texas is among the least generous states, Stream Energy, through their Stream Cares foundation, is doing their best to make up for the lack of philanthropic and altruistic efforts around the state, and they regularly make it a core principal of their daily operations.

Sahm Adrangi and The Calculated Negative Report Given To Quinstreet, Inc.

One of the most enervating challenges in the world of investment is in picking the right stocks or shares to invest in. If you put a short position on something that’s deeply valuable, then you might be missing a lot. When you overvalue a share and put an unjustified hype assessment on it, you risk losing a lot of your capital. Fortunately, Sahm Adrangi of Kerrisdale Capital can help you pick the right stocks.

 

In an assessment from PRNewswire, it is shown that the financial officer of Kerrisdale Sahm Adrangi has already put a negative report on Quinstreet, Inc. Despite the hype and unjustified assessment that Quinstreet Inc got lately, Mr. Adrangi believes that there’s a lot of suspicious behavior in the company’s performance. Phony traffic, deliberate tampering of website visits and other proprietary problems are just some of the things that consist the negative assessment that Quinstreet deserves.

 

Mr. Adrangi feels that he has to warn the investors of Quinstreet of such misleading behavior and misconceptions. With the assessment on the low-level business model of QuinStreet, he can help clients and investors veer away from putting too much trust on QuinStreet. Also, it is even shown by the calculation of Sahm Adrangi that most of the traffic coming in as leads for Quinstreet may only be from just one potential lead. All the supposedly active business engagement that the firm declares to have enjoyed may only be coming from one single client. This may be a sign of a sham behavior that could strike a lot of damage to investors.

 

It’s also noteworthy to say here that Kerrisdale Capital Management, LLC builds a good reputation in all its negative reports because it is value-oriented, fundamentals-centered and focuses on the long-term value of such investments.

 

Sahm Adrangi’s reputation as Kerrisdale’s Chief Investment Officer is also robust. He is based in New York City and came out of college with a degree in B.A. Economics from Yale University. You may even have heard his name as the man who worked out the bankruptcy restructuring of Chanin Capital Partners, representing for bank debt holders and other clients who are distressed in their banking credentials.
