BEIJING and GRAND CAYMAN, Cayman Islands, April 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- CryptoAlpaca and Worldwide Asset eXchange™(WAX) today announced that the company's Crypto Collectibles™ will be available onOPSkins, the world's leading marketplace for online video game assets, and will be tradable with WAX Tokens, Bitcoin, ETH, US dollars, Euros and dozens of other currencies.
CryptoAlpaca is a blockchain-based virtual reality game in which players can collect, breed and level up virtual alpacas. Every alpaca is unique and cannot be duplicated or destroyed. Players can collect rewards by feeding and shearing their alpacas.
"We're excited to sit at the edge of cryptocurrency and gaming," said Aron Lyu, Co-founder of CryptoAlpaca. "We chose the alpaca because it's the original mascot of Bitcoin. CryptoAlpaca is a tribute from our team to the entire crypto community, and our mission is to help more people understand the benefits of decentralization."
"Our fascination with collecting begins in childhood. It's a very emotional attachment that we carry throughout our lives. The inception of blockchain-based collectibles presents a new opportunity for the crypto community to get involved, and game developers are taking notice," said Malcolm CasSelle, CIO of OPSkins and President of WAX. "As the popularity of these Crypto Collectibles grows, so does the need for a trustworthy marketplace, which is where WAX and OPSkins come in. Integrating CryptoAlpaca to that ecosystem is an exciting move for us and for the blockchain-based gaming community as a whole."
With the integration of CryptoAlpaca onto the OPSkins platform, WAX Tokens gain additional utility and more players are incentivized to join the ecosystem.
