Donald Trump is launching his own NFT digital card collection on Polygon. Each card is available for purchase for $99 on the official website.
Donald Trump has released his own NFT collection, and it’s everything you could possibly expect.
The former President of the United States announced today on Truth Social the launch of his official digital trading card collection . The collection counts 45,000 NFTs, all of which feature Trump himself in a different attire—superman, spaceman, sheriff, stock market broker, golfer, etc. The President stated in his post that he intended for his fans and followers to view each of his cards “very much like a baseball card, but hopefully much more exciting.”
Trump’s NFTs are currently only purchasable for $99 each on his official website, though it shouldn’t take long for them to pop up on secondary markets such as Blur or OpenSea. The website makes it easy for non-crypto natives to buy the digital cards—fans only need an email address and a credit card, and the platform creates a crypto wallet for them. It’s also possible to buy the NFTs using MetaMask or Coinbase Wallet, and pay with wETH.
Purchasers of Trump NFTs are automatically entered in a sweepstakes game, in which more than a thousand prizes will be distributed. Rewards include a dinner with Trump, a cocktail with him at Mar-a-Lago, a one-on-one meeting, the possibility of playing golf with him, a zoom call, and hand-signed memorabilia, among other things. Moreover, collectors are guaranteed a ticket at the Gala Dinner with Trump in Florida should they buy 45 cards.
Trump fans also have the possibility of entering the sweepstakes without buying the trading cards. Sweepstakes entries are not tied to the digital cards themselves, meaning that collectors won’t be eligible for rewards if they buy the cards off of secondary markets. The website states that the money received through trading card sales would not be used to fund Trump’s political campaign.
Interestingly, the website calls the trading cards both “NFTs” and “digital collectibles” interchangeably. This is not the first time that a major brand uses “digital collectible” to describe the technology, since the word isn’t perceived quite so negatively by mainstream audiences as “NFTs.” Nevertheless, the website is careful to highlight that the cards are minted on Polygon, which it describes as eco-friendly and carbon neutral.
