Donald Trump sold out his NFT collection worth $4.5 million

While Donald Trump is heavily criticized over his NFT collection on Twitter, it sold out within a few hours after its official launch.

Donald Trump launched his own NFT collection while the crypto market bleeds significantly. The former president throws himself into the NFT space, with a total of 45,000 digital trading cards.

Donald Trump NFTs

The popularity of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) suffered along with other risk-on assets this year, but that didn’t stop Donald Trump from launching a whopping 45,000-piece NFT collection. Each one is sold for “only $99,” as stated on the website

Aubrey Strobel pointed Twitter to a tweet from Donald Trump in 2019, where he clearly stated “cryptocurrencies are not money, and whose value is highly volatile and based on thin air.” Now he has launched his own assets based on thin air.

On the other hand, Binance CEO CZ is happy about this fact and thinks it’s a good step in the future, stating “he didn’t like crypto before.”

In my opinion, Trump NFTs are just a cash grab with no utility other than a cool picture. Zoom call or gold with Trump? I don’t buy that. However, paying $100 for an NFT without actual utility and with such a high supply of 45,000 is probably too much.
