Crypto Barons and the Worldwide Asset eXchange has recently made the company’s crypto collectibles available on the OPSkins marketplace.
Crypto Barons is a decentralized app built on the Ethereum Network that houses a game taking place in the medieval period. The purpose of creating such a game is to help users gather collectibles ranging from wood, food, farms, armies, workers and soldiers, to grow into a powerful name. Like any traditional game, users will use their armies for battles to safeguard their kingdoms. The use of blockchain is said to enhance the transacting time, as it allows users to efficiently buy, sell and trade goods.

According to Senior Blockchain Research Advisor, Veikko Hara, the goal behind Crypto Barons is to stimulate an enjoyable yet beneficial experience in dealing with digital assets. Hara goes on to say that:
“we believe role-playing games like Crypto Barons, which combine intellect to acquire and build assets, will solve most of the scaling and payment issues traditional games face while transitioning to the blockchain.”
One might wonder how WAX and OPSkins plays a role in contributing towards Crypto Barons’ goals. For starters, OPSkins is a marketplace made for blockchain gaming. WAX is one of their projects, as they found the need to allow users to make in-game purchases, promoting an all-the-more thrilling experience. Based on a commentary made by the CIO of OPSkins, Malcolm CasSelle, as blockchain games continue to attract users, the need for a “trustworthy marketplace” rises naturally.
OPSkins has become the go-to marketplace for blockchain gaming. Having known as the platform to house CryptoKitties, its latest endeavor is Crypto Barons. Their success has been repeatedly announced, as several millions of transactions are said to take place on a weekly basis with just as many active users. Being able to make purchases with WAX seems to be a great approach, as it allows anyone to create a virtual goods marketplace, with no investment in security, infrastructure or payment processing – eventually drawing more attention from users.
