- Donald Trump has launched NFT trading cards’ collection minted on Polygon.
- There are 45,000 NFTs and the cost of each trading card is $99.
- The cards represent Trump as an astronaut, superhero and cowboy.
Donald Trump has launched NFT trading cards’ collection that includes real-life perks such as a meet-and-greet with Trump or an invite to a gala dinner with him. Ever since the news has come out, both Trump supporters and NFT buffs seem unconvinced.
The former president shared the “Collect Trump Cards” campaign via his Truth Social account. According to his post, the digital trading cards will cost $99 per piece and offer buyers a chance to claim various benefits.
Every card has Trump’s illustration, with some of them featuring him as an astronaut, superhero, or cowboy.
Collect all of your favorite Trump Digital Trading Cards, very much like a baseball card, but hopefully much more exciting.
He asked fans to buy them now, as they will be sold quickly.
Trump has launched his NFT collectibles on his own for the very first time. In the past, there have been unofficial projects. For instance, Parler, a social network, launched Trump-themed NFTs this year.
The recent collection has 45,000 NFTs based on Polygon, and each buyer can purchase up to 100 NFTs.
Criticism followed immediately on Crypto Twitter with NFT personalities calling the promises a major announcement.

Crypto trader and influencer Scott Melker shared that he has many questions and comments but is in a state of confusion and disbelief.
I have so many questions and comments but really just in disbelief and confused and hope it all goes to zero post haste so we can start again. pic.twitter.com/sOVCTfUQRs— The Wolf Of All Streets (@scottmelker) December 15, 2022
The launch has been considered a flop by the conservative voices too. Filmmaker and former Republican congressional candidate, Robby Starbuck, said that he admired Trump, but this looks like a turnoff for many.
Hard truth time: This is not good. We’re facing a threat to civilization from far left Marxist extremists. Teasing NFT cards as a major announcement is not the kind of fight people want to see now. These are dark times. Love the guy but this turns many off. Agree or disagree? pic.twitter.com/tJ4CcPDF0F— Robby Starbuck (@robbystarbuck) December 15, 2022
There were others who mentioned Trump’s earlier claims against crypto. The NFT cards have been minted on a blockchain network, and one can buy them with crypto, which shows a flip-flop for Trump.
