Discover the latest updates on Donald Trump’s NFT collection and how it has gained significant value since the Tucker Carlson interview.
The Value of Trump’s NFT Collection Surges After Viral Interview
Former President Donald Trump’s Baseball Card-Style NFTs See Price Increase
Following a highly-anticipated appearance by former President Donald Trump on Tucker Carlson’s interview show, the value of Trump’s baseball card-style NFT collection experienced a significant surge. The collection, comprised of 45,000 polygon-based Trump Digital Trading Cards, saw its price rise from 0.1 ether ($150) to approximately 0.13 ether ($215) after the interview went viral.
The NFT cards, which were initially launched last December at $99 per card, have become highly sought-after. OpenSea data reveals that the collection has generated over 17.5 ether ($29,000) in volume, with all cards selling out within a day. Each card features Trump in various heroic avatars, including an astronaut, a soldier, George Washington, Elvis Presley, and a guitar-toting motorcycle rider.
Exclusive Opportunities for Collectors
Collectors who own a Trump Digital Trading Card also had the chance to win exciting prizes. Some lucky individuals had the opportunity to enjoy a dinner at Mar-a-Lago with Trump, a round of golf with the former president, or even a Zoom call. These exclusive experiences added to the popularity and appeal of the NFT collection.
Trump’s Crypto Holdings and Income Sources
It was recently disclosed that CIC Digital LLP, a company owned by Trump that licenses his image for the NFTs, holds between $250,000 and $500,000 in an Ethereum wallet. Surprisingly, the company’s US bank account contains less than $1,000. However, there are reports suggesting that Trump’s actual crypto holdings could be worth millions of dollars. These holdings are just a part of his hundred-plus income sources, collectively valued at around $1.2 billion.
