WAX (WAX) is a cryptocurrency made by the founders of OPSkins, the world’s leading marketplace for online video game assets. WAX was created in 2017 as a decentralized platform that enables anyone to create, buy, sell, and trade physical and virtual items to anyone, anywhere in the world.
The WAX coin is a utility token that harnesses the power of blockchain technology to allow virtual goods to be tokenized and exchanged for cryptocurrency. The name WAX is an acronym for Worldwide Asset eXchange and participants of the WAX platform gain access to a global community of online gamers, creators, collectors, and traders who buy and sell in-game items.
The WAX platform enables anyone to build an online store/marketplace using the project’s B2B tools. Using WAX, anyone can tokenize anything in the virtual or physical world and sell or trade the tokenized item through WAX’s blockchain-based platform.
Unlike most cryptocurrency projects, the team behind WAX chose to launch the project on an EOS variant rather than another blockchain. Then, after about a year and a half of development, WAX launched their mainnet on June 30, 2019 and WAX tokens could be swapped to the WAX blockchain mainnet up until August 30, 2019. On the new WAX blockchain, WAX tokens are generated through a Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) algorithm with 21 block producers called “Guilds”. Additionally, users can stake their WAX tokens allowing them to vote on the WAX blockchain and earn rewards for doing so.
The total supply of WAX is 1,850,000,000 tokens and the circulating supply is 942,821,662 tokens. The WAX ICO was held in November 2017 where 64,750,000 WAX tokens were sold in exchange for $9,600,000 in ETH, BTC, and USD.
