The Trump Trading Cards account is also used to buy erotic art
The online profile that sold Donald Trump’s collection of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) also traded in sexually explicit art.
The TrumpDeployer account, which housed the former president’s “digital trading cards” on the OpenSea NFT exchange, is also used to purchase other online collectibles of a pornographic nature.
In addition to more traditional NFTs, such as those from the popular Bored Ape Club, the TrumpDeployer account has traded several NFTs with an account called Freiburg, which sells “erotic art” featuring naked women and penetrative sex. .
According to data available on the OpenSea site, the TrumpDeployer account has traded 14 erotic NFTs since its inception nearly three weeks ago.
It’s unclear who is behind the TrumpDeployer account, and there’s nothing stopping them from trading other NFTs while selling the former president’s.
A question-and-answer section on the Collect Trump Cards website says money raised from selling the online tokens, drawn by illustrator Clark Mitchell, will not be used for Trump’s 2024 presidential campaign.
The Collect Trump Cards website adds that the company behind the cards, NFT INT LLC, is “not owned, operated or controlled by Donald J. Trump or The Trump Organization” and that they were created using the name, Trump’s likeness and image under paid license. .
Trump was widely ridiculed for teasing a “major announcement” that later turned out to be NFTs of him dressed in multiple guises such as a cowboy and an astronaut.
Despite that, the 45,000 Trump trading cards that went on sale for $99 on Dec. 17 sold out within hours, raking in nearly $4.5 million in the process.
However, their value has fallen since the opening day high.
According to the Decrypt website, citing data from OpenSea, the cheapest Trump trading cards shortly after their sale on December 17 was 0.84 Etherum, about 10 times the original sale price of around $990.
On December 29, some Trump Trading cards were selling on OpenSea for just 0.15 ETH, or around $180.
Speaking on the One American News Network, Trump insisted that entering the world of NFT was not about the money.
“I didn’t think of it as an investment. I thought of it as – I thought they were cute. For $99 you get these visions which are very nice and interesting, I think, and I saw it that way a lot more than as NFT,” Trump said Dec. 20.
