Trump's Cryptocurrency Holdings Revealed

Former U.S. President Donald Trump holds up to $500,000 in an Ethereum wallet, a recent disclosure from the U.S. Office of Government Ethics has unveiled. This comes as a surprise since Trump, who is aiming for the presidency again in 2024, has previously expressed skepticism towards cryptocurrencies.

Success of Trump's NFT Series

Despite his reservations about crypto, Trump launched a collection of non-fungible token (NFT) cards last year, featuring images of himself. These NFTs sold out in mere hours. In April, he released a second series, which also sold quickly, although momentum for the cards did slow down. Filings show that Trump made between $500,000 and $1 million from this endeavor.
