Former US President Donald Trump has launched a US$99 digital trading card NFT collection via his social media website Truth Social. The NFT collection will have over 45,000 fantasy NFTs minted on Polygon and features images similar to collectible baseball cards.
Shares of Digital World acquisition saw a 10% surge after Trump’s teaser of a major announcement. The major announcement was supposed to collect shareholder votes for the merger of Digital World (a special-purpose acquisition company) with Trump’s Truth Social. But as the announcement turned out to be the launch of US$99 digital NFTs, it failed to gin up the excitement.
Trump posted on Truth Social, “These limited edition cards (Donald Trump NFTs) feature amazing ART of my Life & Career! Collect all of your favorite Trump Digital Trading Cards, very much like a baseball card, but hopefully much more exciting…“ He added that these cards, priced only at US$99, would make a fabulous Christmas gift.
The NFT cards can be purchased from here, and the collectors who purchase the Trump trading cards will automatically enter a “sweepstakes” to receive experiences with Trump. These may include a zoom call, a dinner in Miami, or cocktails at Mar-a-Lago.
