Trump Makes History with Indictment
Trump made history by becoming the first incumbent US president to be indicted on criminal charges, causing interest in his NFT collection to skyrocket.
NFT Collection Goes Viral
Sales of Trump Digital Trading Cards increased by 460% in the last 24 hours, totaling $185,785. NFT Price Floor data shows that over the past 24 hours, the floor price, or price of the cheapest listed NFT in the collection, has increased by 25%. The 45,000-piece set has a stiff-faced Trump dressed as Superman, a wrestler, a soldier, a football player and many other characters with 13,963 people having purchased them so far.
Hush Money Controversy
The grand jury’s decision to prosecute Trump for making hush money payments to Stormy Daniels during the 2016 election was what led him to become the first US president to face criminal charges. Daniels is an American adult film actress whose real name is Stephanie Clifford who rose to prominence in 2018 when it was reported that she had an alleged romance with then-businessman and current former US President Trump in 2006.
The controversy led to multiple court battles between Daniels, Cohen and Trump which resulted in Trump unveiling his digital trading cards through his social platform on December 15th 2022 which sold out within hours of their release.
Since its launch in December 2020 when it received widespread derision from critics and admirers alike Donald Trumps NFT collection have been doing quite well despite the recent news about his indictment proving that despite all odds he still remains popular amongst his fans and supporters who are willing to invest into this new venture even when everything else seems uncertain.
