Donald Trump’s NFT trading card sales volume has seen a surge tied to the former United States president’s indictment by a New York grand jury.
The floor price of Trump’s NFT collection jumped 24% over the last 24 hours to a current price of $1,023, per data from NFT Price Floor.
On Thursday night, soon after the news of Trump’s indictment hit, the floor price fell just shy of surpassing the all-time high of $1,079 from February.
More, sales have surged since last night, with a 404% increase in secondary trading volume over the past 24 hours compared to the previous span.
According to media reports, Trump has been indicted on more than 30 counts tied to fraudulent business dealings. The indictment is currently sealed, but the charges are expected to be announced in the days to come.
Trump is the first former or current U.S. president to face criminal charges.
Since launch, monthly sales of Trump NFTs have been drastically uneven: nearly $10 million in December, crashing to $2.6 million in January, jumping to $4 million in February, and falling to $2 million so far in March as of this writing.
