In a hearing on March 30, a US jury passed a verdict indicting former US president and commander-in-chief Donald Trump. All of a sudden, this sparked interest in his infamous NFTs again.
Donald Trump, the former president of the USA, has faced serious legal problems in recent weeks.
On March 30, US Manhattan Grand jury indicted the former country’s president. Based on reports, Trump now faces arrest in the coming days.
Trump’s indictment is mainly because of an ongoing probe involving obfuscation of money paid by the former president to pornstar Stormy Daniels.
The reaction, mainly from the political class, has been quite interesting. While some people are genuinely satisfied with the news, others are seemingly concerned about the direction the US democracy is taking.
Questions over the motive of arresting the presidential competitor just one year before the elections have been raised.

Interestingly, owing to the news about his indictment, Donald Trump’s NFTs have seemingly been recording positive price movements. According to recent reports, the NFTs surged 11% within 24 hours following the indictment announcement.
