Former US president Donald Trump has re-entered the non-fungible token (NFT) scene, this time introducing Bitcoin-based digital collectibles as rewards for buyers.
The announcement was made via an X (Twitter) thread by the former president on January 18. The upcoming release features 200 unique Bitcoin-based NFT trading cards.
To get one of these NFTs, collectors must purchase (in a single transaction) 100 digital cards from MugShot — Trump’s latest NFT collection — using cryptocurrency (WETH).
The Bitcoin NFT is listed among the other benefits for purchasing 100 NFTs from the collection, alongside two VIP tickets to attend a gala dinner with Trump at Mar-a-Lago, limited-edition physical versions of the trading cards, and more.
Collectors will be able to later claim their Ordinal inscription on the Magic Eden’s Bitcoin platform.
This move follows last month’s revelation that former president Trump divested $2.4 million in Ethereum, as reported by the crypto platform Arkham. The blockchain transactions detailing the sale have sparked speculation about the motives behind Trump’s crypto-related actions.
Indeed, Donald Trump has been actively engaged in the NFT space throughout the last year. His NFT journey began in December 2022 with the launch of his first collection of NFT trading cards depicting him in various scenarios. In April, the former president swiftly sold out the second series of his trading card NFT collection shortly after its release.
