Malcolm CasSelle Develops a Unique Platform for Virtual Assets Traders

Worldwide Asset eXchange (WAX) is an innovative platform that serves as a marketplace for virtual goods. It decentralizes exchanges and enables clients to buy goods using a global token. This platform is built leveraging blockchain technologies, mainly focusing on video game items. It minimizes transaction costs, establishes marketplaces for games, and allows tokenization of physical assets. Users can trade, sell, and purchase in a safe, quick, and peer-to-peer way, eliminating the risks and hassles associated with virtual goods trading.

How WAX protects the Virtual Asset Bond and Token

WAX has a multi-layered protection strategy whereby the token holders themselves play the oversight role. During the process of virtual asset exchange, users called Transfer Agents play the role of transferring items under supervisory committees known as Guilds. Rating systems and means of verifying proof of stake play a crucial role in the exchange process.

Orange Coast College Planetarium Project

A planetarium that is under construction at Orange Coast College received a generous donation of $1 million. This donation came from a retired professor, Mary McChesney. The donation will be put towards a Foucault pendulum ( a device used to portray Earth’s rotation). Officials from the Costa Mesa college stated that it will be the only pendulum of that type in Orange County. McChesney said the planetarium will be the center of scientific related studies for students and the community. McChesney donated the money in remembrance of her partner, Adelyn Bonin, who passed away in January. Bonin taught German classes at the college until she retired in 1983. McChesney taught classes at OCC and retired in 1983 as well. Mary has continued to be a contributor to the foundation as well as scholarships. Construction for the planetarium began in 2016 and will feature a 129 seat auditorium as well as an exhibit hall that displays a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The planetarium prior to that could only seat 35 visitors. The overall budget for the project is about $20 million. About $2.6 million has already been made in donations towards building the new planetarium.
