The future of WAX entails so much more than a platform for selling in-game goods however. it is the foundations for not only a new global marketplace for peer-to-peer trading, but for a new cryptocurrency as well, or Wax Tokens, which could compete with such already existing and successful currencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, and Litecoin. “WAX is the onramp for mass market cryptocurrency adoption.” says William Quigley, current WAX CEO. As of right now there are nearly 2 billion WAX Tokens in circulation already, valued at around 0.16 USD each.
