Donald Trump’s Crypto Wallet Hits $14 Million Post-Conviction

Blockchain analytics platform Arkham Intelligence has identified a crypto wallet belonging to former US President Donald Trump, amassing a substantial $14 million. The wallet has witnessed a surge in deposits, with over $1 million pouring in within the past 24 hours alone, comprising various cryptocurrencies including Ethereum (ETH), Polygon (MATIC), and the USDC stablecoin.

Legal Conviction Sparks Donation Surge

Following Trump’s conviction in a historic hush money trial on May 30, the wallet saw a significant influx of contributions. Prosecutors accused him of participating in an illegal conspiracy to influence the 2016 presidential election and suppress negative information. The wallet now holds a total of $9.48 million worth of TRUMP MAGA tokens, with Ethereum and wrapped Ethereum (wETH) contributing $1.77 million and $1.43 million, respectively.

Donald Trump’s Crypto Strategy Amidst Legal Battles

Trump’s crypto holdings and donations from the community could be perceived as a form of support amidst his legal battles. With a sentencing hearing scheduled for July 11, Trump faces potential prison time or probation.

However, despite the legal challenges, Trump is actively preparing for the upcoming November presidential election. Donald Trump has embraced the crypto economy as part of his campaign strategy.

Earlier this month, Trump’s campaign announced its acceptance of cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin (BTC), for donations through Coinbase Commerce.

Moreover, Trump is delving into the world of non-fungible tokens (NFTs). He has introduced NFT collections that consistently sell out within hours of launch. Melania Trump, his wife, is also involved in NFT projects, indicating the family’s increasing engagement with the crypto space.

As Trump navigates the legal and political landscape, his foray into cryptocurrencies underscores a strategic move to appeal to digital assets enthusiasts in the United States. Thus, signaling a potentially significant shift in campaign financing and engagement tactics.
