Trump Scored Huge Haul With NFT Projects

Last Friday, former President Donald Trump filed the first disclosure of his personal finances since leaving office, offering a peek into his post-presidency earnings, The Washington Post reported.

The former president is required to file a disclosure since he is once again running for president.

The 100-page disclosure, which was filed just under the wire to avoid the $200 penalty from the Federal Elections Commission, enumerates Trump’s management positions at two businesses involved in promoting his speaking engagements and marketing his digital trading cards. It also includes his involvement in Trump Media & Technology Group, the company behind Truth Social. 

Because the value of the companies and the income Trump derives from them are itemized in broad ranges, it is impossible to know specifically how much Trump earned from any of the ventures.

For example, Trump listed his earnings from CIC Digital, the company selling digital trading cards in the form of NFTs (non-fungible tokens) as somewhere between $100,001 and $1 million. He disclosed earning over $5 million from CIC Ventures, the company managing his speaking engagements.

Trump also disclosed that he has a 90 percent stake in Trump Media & Technology Group but listed his earnings for the company as no more than $200.

Trump’s disclosure form also provided a window into Trump’s earnings from his company’s new overseas ventures.

In 2022, Saudi real estate developer Dar Al Arkan announced a $4 billion agreement with the Trump Organization for a project to bring a Trump golf course, hotel, and villas to Oman. However, the disclosure did not reveal the financial details of the agreement. According to the disclosure, Trump said he is making over $5 million on the deal through a firm called DT Marks Oman LLC.

Additionally, the disclosure filing reveals that the former president owns stock in the COVID vaccine makers Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson.
