Donald Trump, who served as the 45th President of the United States, has come up with his own NFT collection. Changpeng Zhao, CEO and creator of Binance, pointed out that only three years ago, the former president was making negative comments about cryptocurrencies, but now he is issuing NFTs, so “we’re getting there”.
In 2019, Donald Trump published a statement on Twitter in which he said that he is not a supporter of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies since they are not money, the value of which is very volatile, and it is based on nothing more than thin air.
He went on to say that uncontrolled crypto assets may make illicit activities easier, such as the trafficking of drugs and other forms of criminal activity.
The collection includes photographs of the former president in a variety of fictitious roles, such as that of a superhero, an astronaut, and a pilot in the manner of Top Gun. An animated version of the former president was seen in a promotional video standing in front of the Trump Tower in New York City. In the video, the former president tears up his shirt to reveal a superhero outfit that is emblazoned with the letter T, and lasers shoot out of his eyes.
According to the official website, even though Trump said in November that he intended to run for president in 2024, the money from the sale of the cards will not go toward Trump’s campaign. Trump does not control the firm that created the playing cards; nevertheless, they have obtained a license to use his name and picture in exchange for payment.
