Donald Trump NFT rates surge following release of mugshot in Georgia criminal case By Cointelegraph

The cost of nonfungible tokens (NFTs) including Donald Trump rose after news outlets launched a picture of the previous United States President as part of his criminal case in the state of Georgia for supposedly trying to overturn the will of citizens in the 2020 election.

According to information from NFT market OpenSea, the flooring cost of Trump’s line of digital trading cards very first launched in December 2022 increased more than 62% from 0.138 to 0.224 Ether (ETH) on Aug. 24 quickly after the previous president’s mugshot ended up being public. The image, which reveals Trump looking madly at the electronic camera amidst his surrender at the Georgia Sheriff’s Office in Fulton County, has actually gone viral as the very first mugshot of an existing or previous U.S. President dealing with criminal cases.
