A recent report has revealed that former US President Donald Trump’s notorious NFT trading cards collection was also used for trading in erotic art. On the OpenSea trading platform, the TrumpDeployer account, which housed the former president’s NFTs, traded several NFTs with an account called Freiburg.
The Freiburg account is known for selling erotic art featuring naked women and penetrative sex. This is not the first time that NFTs have been used in the trading of erotic art, however, the use of the TrumpDeployer account to facilitate the trade has brought a great deal of attention to the issue.
The TrumpDeployer account has since been removed from the OpenSea trading platform, and it is unclear who was behind the account or what it was being used for. However, the use of NFTs to facilitate the trading of erotic art is an increasing phenomenon, and one that could have serious implications for the digital art market.
The Collect Trump Cards website states that money raised from the sale of the online tokens, drawn by illustrator Clark Mitchell, will not be used for Trump’s 2024 presidential campaign. However, the value of the Trump Trading Cards has plummeted from the opening day high, with some cards now selling for just 0.15 ETH, or about $180, on OpenSea.
As NFTs become increasingly popular and more widely adopted, the issue of their use in the trading of erotic art is likely to become more prominent. While the TrumpDeployer account has been removed from the OpenSea trading platform, it is likely that other accounts will continue to use NFTs to facilitate the trading of erotic art.
