Former POTUS Donald Trump is all set to make his debut on Bitcoin Ordinals as the Trump Digital Trading Card NFT collection is being minted on Bitcoin.
Trump NFTs Minted On Bitcoin
With the next presidential elections looming at the end of the year, former President of the United States, Donald Trump, is launching his Trump Digital Trading Card collection as Bitcoin Ordinals. The collection will also include the Trump MugShot NFT, which features the infamous mugshot picture of Trump taken during his arrest and indictment.
The news was announced by the CollectTrumpCards page on X, where it revealed that the Trump Digital Trading Cards NFTs were being minted on Bitcoin. The group also revealed that once a collector has used WETH to buy a hundred Trump Digital Trading cards on their website, they will receive a one-of-a-kind Trump Digital Trading Card, which will be minted as a Bitcoin Ordinal.
MugShot Edition In Demand
The MugShot Edition, which will boast a limited series of 200 1/1 trading cards, is being featured heavily in this drop. Furthermore, at the time of the announcement, over half of these exclusive cards had already been taken off the CollectTrumpCards.com website, with only 99 left for purchase. Those who have already purchased their Trump Digital Trading Cards will be able to claim their exclusive Ordinal inscriptions later on from the Magic Eden platform.
By introducing his NFTs on Bitcoin Ordinals, the former president is continuing his successful foray into the non-fungible token market. Building on the triumph of his earlier Trump Digital Trading Cards, which swiftly sold out, this latest development comes at a crucial juncture in both his political career and the broader landscape of digital currencies.
Trump’s Politics Influencing NFT Sales
As the frontrunner in the Republican leadership race, the former president's strategic moves in the NFT and Web3 space have created a certain interest in the unfolding political narrative. His recent pledge to oppose the creation of a central bank digital currency (CBDC) also aligns his stance with those skeptical of centralized digital currencies.
The CollectTrumpCards team has explicitly stated,
“Trump Digital Trading Cards (NFTs) are intended as collectible items for individual enjoyment only, not for investment vehicles. These Digital Trading Cards are not political and have nothing to do with any political campaign.”
However, with the 2024 election looming, Trump's persistent engagement with NFTs introduces an innovative means of connecting with the electorate.
According to the NFT Price Floor, the Trump Cards collections have secured the 16th position in the NFT Brand ranking, boasting an impressive market cap of 26,576 ETH. In the last 24 hours alone, three cards racked up a commendable 366 NFT sales, bringing in a significant valuation of 66.479 ETH.
