On April 18, former US President Donald Trump returned with a new NFT series of 47,000 digital tokens minted by Polygon. His first NFT series launched in mid-December 2022 and sold out in just a few hours. The token’s value has held up well in the secondary market and also surged after Trump was indicted by a Manhattan grand jury.
On March 30, 2023, Trump was charged with 34 felony counts of falsifying business records related to payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels. Trump has pleaded not guilty, and his legal team has called for a trial in the spring of 2024. On Truth Social, Trump revealed his second NFT collection just 19 days later. The cards, priced at $99 each, are intended as “collectibles for personal taste only, not investment vehicles.”
Each card has a “unique pre-assigned rarity”. Customers who purchase 47 NFTs from Trump will have the opportunity to dine with the former president. In a post on Truth Social, Trump said:
“I’m pleased to inform you that due to the overwhelming success of my previous digital trading cards, I’ve introduced Series 2, which is now available.”
Trump also noted that he has kept label prices steady despite their success in the secondary market.
“I want people to pay attention, I believe that fake news will not happen, I will keep trading tokens at the same price as last time, even if they sell many times (it’s called a market!), sold out almost immediately, because I want my My fans and supporters make money. I had a great time. I could have gone higher and I was sure it would still sell, but I did,” Trump said.
