Former President Donald Trump’s collection of non-fungible tokens (NFT) digital trading cards sold out early Friday, a day after it was originally released.
Trump unveiled on Thursday a limited-edition set of trading cards for the NFT, featuring comic-book-like images of himself depicted as superheroes, Hollywood actors, and others, after teasing an announcement of great importance on his Truth social account.
The entire set of 45,000 Donald Trump-themed NFTs were sold out within about 12 hours, according to data from OpenSea, and almost 14,000 people purchased one or more of the non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
OpenSea Data, which tracks NFT sales and markets, indicates that there were initially 45,000 cards featuring the former president Trump that were made available for purchase at a cost of $99 each. At a cost of $99 apiece, Trump cards were printed on the Polygon blockchain, and sold out within a day. The cards marked the first time Donald Trump has ventured into the realm of NFTs, though Melania Trump released NFTs way back in February, reportedly buying them for $185k each.
In addition to NFTs, Trump announced a raffle for a number of prizes, including dinner with him in Miami, golf outings, a one-on-one meeting, and memorabilia signed by the former President.
Melania Trump launched an NFT sales platform last year on the Solana blockchain, featuring the first picture from her eyes, and her husband’s single in office. The collection highlights iconic moments of her husband’s presidency, including one themed Christmastime in the White House.
