The delivery of tokens in the gaming industry has been one of the most important aspects of this sector across many different platforms. Technology expert and CIO of OPSkins, Malcolm Casselle is working to try and build a more inclusive way of working to build tokens across many different platforms. The Stanford University graduate has a long history of uniting the gaming community through his work to create social media platforms for use by gamers and his latest work to build a common Online marketplace for products purchased in the digital world.
In the view of Malcolm Casselle, the issue of purchasing items o different platforms using a range of currencies has left many members of the community unable to trade their purchases without the use of a middleman. Cryptocurrency use has been one of the most important parts of the global financial sector of recent years, and Malcolm Casselle believes the gaming industry will be the catalyst for the arrival of this financial development in the mainstream. Malcolm Casselle has already overseen the introduction of a token designed for his own Worldwide Asset Exchange, WAX, which is developing safe and secure options for trading items purchased within video games.
There are many different areas of interest for Malcolm Casselle, including the development of the Blockchain within WAX designed to produce a safer trading experience for all users. OPSkins and WAX are both at the forefront of the development of the use of the Blockchain to limit fraud within the trading of virtual assets. As more tokenization becomes the norm for most games and gamers, finding the most secure ways of trading assets has become a holy grail within an industry rife with hackers. As the President of WAX, Malcolm Casselle has overseen the introduction of various “guilds’ designed to self-police the process of buying and selling virtual assets within the limits of the Blockchain super contracts.
Sahm Adrangi, age 36, is a famed short seller and the Chief Information Officer and Founder of Kerrisdale Capital Management LLC, located in New York City. He was born in Tehran, Iran but grew up in Vancouver, Canada. Sahm Adrangi graduated from Yale University in 2003 with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics. He founded Kerrisdale in 2009 which is a firm that focuses on long-term value investments and research. Prior to founding Kerrisdale, Adrangi worked at Longacre Fund Management LLC managing over $2 billion in distressed debt. Kerrisdale focuses on research to correct misunderstandings of “over-hyped shorts and underfollowed longs” in the stock market, specifically in the biotechnology, telecommunications and mining industries. After exposing fraudulent Chinese companies, Sahm Adrangi and Kerrisdale became well-known in investment banking. The fraud was found through Sahm Adrangi’s research and resulted in some of the companies being investigated by the SEC.
He has stated that being a short seller can be challenging, especially when the market is doing well as the potential for losing money is greater. However, he does state that the market has been favorable towards short activism for the past seven or eight years. Adrangi defines short activism has “those who short a stock and then go out and publicly debate its merits” by presenting their “investing thesis.” Short activists can then “leverage the credibility” that they have built “over the years to get the market to start looking” at their short thesis and discussing it. When asked about the near future of short sellers Adrangi states that the “appetite for short-seller hedge funds is strong,” due to the market going down recently leading investors to look out for more short sellers. Overall, Adrangi believes that the future for short sellers is forward-looking as many people are changing their views and theories on short sellers to be more positive.
Guilherme Paulus started his passion for travel in 1972 and has never really stopped ever since. It was in that year that he co-founded CVC Tours in Santo André, São Paulo. It started out as a very small travel agency and over time became the largest tour operator in all of Latin America. He also now operates a hospitality firm, GJP Hotels and Resorts, which keeps him on the move.
He earned a degree in business administration and then started working for IBM as an intern. He quickly decided he would rather make his mark in a different industry, though, and found someone who shared his vision of starting a travel agency. This partner supplied the money to get this business off the ground. After four years Guilherme Paulus was running this as a solo business and began to attract clients from around the world as well as domestically.

Do you sometimes believe that an always positive growth is too good to be true? So does Ted Bauman, a savvy investor of international stocks and currencies. He believes in a whole market approach, meaning that putting all your eggs in one basket is never a good thing. He also takes the approach that a bull market, or a market steadily and heavily increasing profits around the boars, is sure to succumb to a pop of epic proportions.

What does Ted Bauman do exactly? Well, he provides detailed Youtube videos of market trend analysis to help even the novice buyer reach into the international trading business with understanding. He makes it possible for people without a hedge fund manager to look at the market in several countries and make logical decisions to overturn government oversight and bureaucracy. How can we know he is really worthy of trust with our investments? Ted did it himself by traveling and researching housing markets in over 75 different countries. During that time he wrote extensively about finance for the World Bank and United Nations. During the financial crisis in 2008, Ted Bauman moved from South Africa to the United States to help with efforts like Habitat for Humanity and other Housing projects in the United States.
If you are interested in Ted Bauman and his work, there are many social media outlets to educate yourself on financial investments through his insight. Not only does he have the youtube videos mentioned earlier, but his social media presence is active. He writes a free daily newsletter The Sovereign Investor Daily and is published in several notable journals such as the Journal of Microfinance, Small Enterprise Development, and Environment and Urbanization. His most noteworthy work comes from his book, Where to Stash Your Cash (Legally) which was co-authored by his father, U.S. Congressman Robert Bauman.
Having a true sense of the business environment is extremely important to any investment firm. Many firms will go out of their way to get the best researchers that are able to spot the trends that nobody else can. Kerrisdale Capital Management, LLC was lucky enough to have one of the most gifted researchers of the decade, Sahm Adrangi, fall right into their laps upon their founding.
Sahm Adrangi started his career in 2003, shortly after graduating Yale University with his BA in Economics. Interested in the business world and how companies create leverage, he became a credit analyst first at Duestche Bank and then at Chanin Partners. Ever in search of a more interesting career path, Sahm joined the multi-billion dollar portfolios of Longacre Fund Management as an analyst. There he learned exactly what it meant to be an investment banker. With a $300,000 loan from his parents, Sahm Adrangi created a new company called Kerrisdale Capital Management.
Kerrisdale started with a portfolio of just $1 million and has quickly grown to having over $150 million in managed funds. This growth was due, in large part, to the research and investment strategies put out by Adrangi on a daily basis. Much of this research has to do with finding those trends that nobody else has thought of, such as finding shorts that have been overhyped by other investors, or those longs that are not being purchased at the rate they should be. He will also use his research to challenge how the market is looking at a specific sector, or to change the understanding of certain business strategies that a large firm is taking. Adrangi has even used his research to spark investigations into certain companies that has uncovered fraud.
Now Sahm Adrangi has taken a new step in developing an expertise in telecommunications, biotechnologies, and mining. With this new knowledge and body of research, he is hoping that he can help to create a larger portfolio of managed funds for Kerrisdale and bring a larger bottom line to the companies that he advises. Sahm Adrangi is definitely a banker to watch in the future.
