Trump Drops Second Series of NFTs – “The Art of the Steal”
Former U.S. President and self-proclaimed Web3 aficionado, Donald Trump, is back with a vengeance. Following the rousing success of his first NFT collection, Trump has launched a second series of limited-edition digital trading cards on the Polygon blockchain.
The announcement was made on Trump’s own social network, Truth Social, where he boasted about the “great success” of his initial collection and the overwhelming demand for more. Trump’s NFTs are a perfect representation of his presidency: divisive, polarizing, and expensive.

Trump Drops Second Series of NFTs: “Make Crypto Great Again”
Series 2 promises to be just as volatile and contentious as the first collection. The artwork, rarity traits, and utility features will differ from the original collection, ensuring that collectors will have to cough up more money to complete their sets.
The NFTs will remain at their original mint price of $99, which is a bargain considering that it’s a steal compared to what Trump has been charging for his speeches. Fans of the former president can now own a piece of history without having to storm the Capitol building.
The End of an Era: Series 1 Plummets
The announcement of Series 2 caused an uproar in the NFT community, and the value of Series 1 plummeted almost instantly. The floor price on OpenSea, the leading NFT marketplace, dropped from nearly 0.4 ETH ($840) to a measly 0.2 ETH ($420).
Collectors who had paid top dollar for Series 1 were left with a sinking feeling, but they can take comfort in the fact that they still own a piece of history. They can also take comfort in the fact that they’re not the ones facing indictments for various crimes.
Conclusion: A Trumpian Legacy
Love him or hate him, Donald Trump has left an indelible mark on American politics and now, the NFT market. His NFTs may be controversial, but they’re also a testament to the power of Web3 and the creativity of its users.
As Trump himself would say, “I make the best NFTs, nobody makes better NFTs than me.” Whether you believe that or not, you can’t deny that Trump’s NFTs are a unique addition to the crypto world. Who knows, maybe one day they’ll be worth more than a MAGA hat on eBay.
