Donald Trump, who is a candidate for re-election for the US presidency, has ETH assets in the range of 250 thousand to 500 thousand dollars, according to his financial statement. It was learned that Trump acquired these ETHs with the NFT collection, which he sold after leaving the White House.
As it is known, Trump launched his own NFT-based card collection last December, and the collection, consisting of 44 thousand NFTs and each NFT was $ 99, was sold out within a day. Then he released a second collection, which was quickly sold out. More than $8.9 million in revenue was generated from sales, while Trump earned $298,000 in license fees.
Trump, whose total fortune is $ 2.5 billion, made harsh statements about Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies during his presidency. Trump wrote on his Twitter account that he is not a fan of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, which are “highly volatile in value and not money,” and that unregulated crypto assets facilitate illegal behavior, including drug dealing and other illegal activities. It was included in the book of former US National Security Advisor John Bolton, who later told Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin to “do not chase Bitcoin”.
