Donald Trump, the 45th President of the United States, has raked in up to $1 million from the sales of his digital trading cards.
According to a filing with the US Office of Government Ethics, the former US president earned between $100,001 to $1 million from CIC Digital, the company behind the sale of NFTs featuring digital images of Trump.
The filing was part of his personal financial disclosure with the Federal Election Commission, which also showed that the American politician earned millions from speaking engagements. The filing is required of candidates running for president.
According to the filing, submitted on Friday, Trump holds the position of “manager, president, secretary and treasurer” at CIC Digital LLC and CIC Ventures LLC.
On the official Trump Trading Cards website, it says that CIC Digital LLC allowed NFT INT LLC, the company behind the NFT project, to use Trump’s likeness, name, and image under a paid licensing agreement.
