Donald Trump, the 45th U.S. President, recently unveiled detailed information about his financial position. This includes earnings from speaking engagements, the sale of his Washington D.C. hotel, and intriguingly, his non-fungible token (NFT) collection. These revelations were part of a revised disclosure filed with the Office of Government Ethics, detailing more than $1 billion in income from various sources.
From Hotels to Cryptocurrency
In an initial disclosure submitted in April, Trump provided only broad estimations of his income from sources like dividends, capital gains, interest, rent, and royalties. Now in the process of running for a non-consecutive second term in the 2024 elections, he has presented a more precise breakdown of his financial status.
Particularly interesting is Trump’s disclosure concerning his company CIC Digital LLC, which earns licensing fees for using his image on a collection of NFTs. Notably, the company owns an Ethereum wallet with a value falling between $250,000 and $500,000.
Trump’s NFT Collection
Trump’s venture into the digital realm became evident in December when he announced his Trump Digital Trading Cards. These tokens depict him in various roles, from golfer to Superman, and are listed on the NFT marketplace, Opensea. Despite a decline in the NFT market in the past year, Trump’s cards witnessed a surge in sales after the former president’s indictment.
