DONALD TRUMP RAKES IN $4.6 MILLION WITH COLLECTIBLE NFTS AFTER SELLING OUT IN ‘RECORD TIME’
President Donald Trump returned with his second set of digital trading cards, after being barred from Instagram as a result of the Jan. 6 Congressional protests.
Trump’s Tuesday Instagram post informed his 23.4 million followers that “we are doing it again, SERIES 2 AVAILABLE RIGHT NOW” after the remarkable success of his previously announced digital trading cards.
The president’s two-year hiatus from the platform following his ban comes to an end with this post.
As he announced he would speak at the Save America march on January 6, 2021, President Trump made his last Instagram post.
The Hill, claims that in December, President Trump first made the “big announcement” that he would be releasing a set of digital trading cards. The NFTs were so popular that they sold out in a single day.
The New York Post stated that the first round of President Trump’s NFTs brought in nearly $4 million. The 45th president was portrayed in the 45,000 cards in a variety of vocations, including those of a cowboy, sheriff, and race car driver.
The Series 2 collection was going for the same price, as President Trump noted in a subsequent Instagram post.
“I hope everyone notices, & I’m sure the Fake News won’t, that I’m leaving the price of the Trading Cards the same as last time, even though they are selling for MANY TIMES MORE (It’s called the MARKET!), & sold out almost immediately, because I want my fans & supporters to make money, & have fun doing it,” the president wrote under a picture of him as a superhero.
The second set of trading cards was just as popular as the first, with the official website announcing that it had sold out in just hours.
Donald Trump praised its success with another Instagram post, saying, “As of 10 minutes ago, my Digital Trading Cards SOLD OUT, in RECORD TIME, approximately $4.6 Million. A great honor, and I hope everyone is Happy, Healthy, and Wealthy. CONGRATULATIONS!”
