Donald Trump NFTs Soar After Super Bowl Clash with Rihanna

Trump’s bizarre rant on Truth Social takes Trump Card NFTs to unseen heights at Rihanna’s expense.

Donald Trump yelling and pointing finger at Rihanna as she shows the former president two middle fingers up.
  • Donald Trump lashes out at Rihanna after her NFL Super Bowl performance.
  • A grand jury probes the 45th president of the United States over Mar-A-Lago.
  • Donald Trump Cards (TRUMP) NFT hit an all-time high of 0.676 Ethereum (ETH).

Donald Trump Digital Trading Cards NFT Collection has been on a wild roller-coaster since the ‘Major Announcement,’ which was mocked by Jimmy Fallon on Saturday Night Live. The initial sale of 45,000 NFTs consisting of stolen photos from Shutterstock mashed with Donald Trump’s proud figure grossed $6.5 million in the first weekend but later plummeted.

Shortly after, the scandal-prone ex-president crept back into the NFT world with Trump Prizes, a sweepstakes NFT collection. The second wave was marked by Trump’s efforts to sell Zoom calls for as little as $25, although later racing amid Twitter comeback rumors. However, now Trump Digital Trading Cards are making NFTs great again as the top trending NFT collection on Polygon (MATIC), also setting a new all-time high in NFT floor price.

Mar-A-Lago Scandal Raises Floor Price

Currently, the cheapest Trump NFT card on OpenSea is #29522. Trump stands with hands raised in Mar-a-Lago, his personally acquired national historic landmark in Palm Beach, Florida. Interestingly, the lowest-price NFT coincides with more controversy in the infamous Mar-a-Lago probe for mishandling high-security documents.

Even though this Mar-a-Lago Trump NFT with basic traits gives no chance to win sweepstake prizes, such as a gala dinner with Trump, the digital collectible would still set NFT enthusiasts back by $1,020.09. Besides, the politically motivated NFT collection fetched 272 Ethereum (ETH) in daily trading volume in 410 sales.

Trump Can’t Stop Rihanna’s Reign

The spike in trading activity on OpenSea was followed by the pugnacious billionaire’s shot at Rihanna, who he said “would be nothing without her stylist.” Repeatedly, the controversial former president took to his own Truth Social platform to rant about the famous R&B singer after her 13-minute performance on Super Bowl LVII, one of the top trending music videos on YouTube.

As the iconic Barbadian songstress floated above the field on a platform, performed her top songs, and then flew away during “Diamonds,” Trump declared Rihanna is “Bad everything, and NO TALENT!” Naturally, many fans beg to differ – being the first performance since Rihanna and hip-hop superstar A$AP Rocky had a baby in May, Rihanna’s Apple Music Super Bowl LVII Halftime Show already scooped over three million views in just six hours.

On the Flipside

  • The second Trump NFT collection, Win Trump Prizes, had just 14 sales in the last 24 hours. On top of that, their trading volume declined by 11%, as many NFT enthusiasts on Crypto Twitter complained about technical difficulties and the low chances of winning.
