Donald Trump has recently made a foray into the NFT space with the release of his collection of “Trump Cards”. The limited edition, digital cards depict the former president in a variety of iconic poses and situations. Each card was priced at $99 and a total of 45,000 NFTs were minted on Polygon, a layer-two scaling solution that runs alongside the Ethereum blockchain and allows for speedy transactions and low fees.
In addition to the cards, buyers of the NFTs were also entered into a sweepstakes for the chance of winning prizes, including a gala dinner, a game of golf, or a group Zoom call with the former president. Starting last month, NFT owners began to receive their access passes in the form of airdrops, which is still ongoing.
The NFTs with access passes to a group Zoom call with Trump are now being flipped by users and are going for sale for less than $25 worth of ETH. According to the OpenSea marketplace, each Zoom call with the former president will include up to 2,000 people and last for 20 minutes. Participants will have the opportunity to submit questions prior to the call but there is no guarantee they will receive an answer.
The Trump Cards NFTs have been met with a mixed reception, with some calling it a clever marketing ploy and others criticizing the former President for capitalizing on his name. Regardless of the opinion, the release of the Trump Card NFTs is an interesting development in the world of NFTs, illustrating the potential for these digital assets to be used for a variety of purposes.
