Despite his recent indictment, Donald Trump isn’t slowing down with his Web3 ambitions. The former U.S. president announced Tuesday the release of a "Series 2" of his NFT collection Trump Digital Trading Cards.
Trump shared the news on his social network Truth Social, telling followers that after “great success,” he’s expanding the collection with a second mint that’s now available to collectors.
While the tokens will be minted on the Polygon blockchain and remain at their original mint price of $99, the art, rarity traits and utility features will differ from the first collection. For starters, Series 2 includes 47,000 non-fungible tokens – 2,000 more than the first series. That could be a nod to his ambition to return to the White House as the 47th president.
According to the Trump Digital Trading Card website, no 10 tokens will have the same features. Rather than a sweepstakes, collectors who purchase 47 tokens can claim a dinner with Trump at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. Collectors who purchase 100 tokens with a cryptocurrency will earn the dinner and a unique Trump-themed artwork.
Upon the news of the upcoming collection, the floor price of the original collection on secondary market OpenSea lost about half its value, sinking to 0.2 ETH (about $420) from nearly 0.4 ETH ($840).
In April, the first collection’s value pumped on the secondary market due to the news of his arrest.
