After obtaining his B.A. and M.A. in Computer Science at both MIT and Stanford, Malcolm cofounded NetNoir in 1995. In 1998 he became CEO of Pacific Century CyberWorks, serving in this role until 2002. Throughout the early years of his career, Malcolm CasSell helped lead startups like MediaPass, Xfire, and Groupon. During his years with Groupon he was instrumental in getting its initiatives going in China. MediaPass is a digital subscription solution to media companies and Xfire is a gamer social network. During his years in Asia, he also founded and helped lead PCCW. It was also during his years in Asia that he became fluent in both Japanese and Mandarin.
Beginning in 2015, Malcolm CasSelle founded and served as CEO for Timeline Labs until it was bought and absorbed by SEAChange International. He then served as the Senior Vice President and General Manager of SeaChange’s Digital Media. In 2016, served as the CTO and President of New Ventures at Tronc, Inc. In 2017 he founded OPSkins and currently serves as its CIO. He led the company to also create Worldwide Asset eXchange (WAX), an in-game trading blockchain-based platform. CasSelle says the OPSkins team came up with the idea of WAX through problems they encountered while operating OPSkins. One big problem it has resolved that has revolutionized how online trading is done is making cross-board trades much easier than before.
Upon the creation of WAX, CasSelle was made the president of WAX in addition to his current role with OPSkins. CasSelle has led both OPSkins and WAX to become the top online gaming asset trading platforms in the world. Through the years CaSelle has found that the average day will go better if he starts it out well and refreshed. For him, this means getting a good night’s sleep followed by a meditation, a workout, and a healthy breakfast first thing in the morning.
