The Trumps are (almost) a household name in the NFT industry over the past two years. Melania Trump was the first to launch her NFT in December 2021, collaborating with Solana Labs executives. In 2022, Donald Trump introduced his popular digital trading card collection, selling 45,000 NFTs for $99 each on the Polygon network. These NFTs offered potential special benefits, such as dining with the former president or joining a group Zoom conference with him.

Despite initial ridicule, the collectibles sold out within 24 hours, garnering attention from both the NFT community and mainstream audiences. Resale values soared, with peak prices surpassing $1,000 per card on secondary markets. To date, the NFTs have generated over $20 million in sales.

In April, Donald Trump released an additional 47,000 NFTs, causing a significant drop in value for the initial set. Original Trump digital trading cards now start at around $185 worth of ETH on secondary markets, while the second set begins at approximately half the mint price, around $54 worth of ETH.
