Yet another exciting week in the metaverse is just about over. Nonetheless, quite a bit happened. Three of the biggest stories in the space surround Donald Trump and Aston Martin launching their own respective NFT collections and White Castle raising $25,000 with NFTs for employees in need. Here’s what’s going on.

Donald Trump Launches NFT Collection

Former United States President and real estate mogul, Donald Trump, announced the launch of an NFT collection. The collection features are of Trump himself as different characters – like a superhero, a Nascar driver, and a cowboy. 

The collection was launched shortly after Trump announced that he’ll be making his third run for the White House. So naturally, many expected his big announcement to be his running mate for the upcoming election. 

That wasn’t the case. Instead, on Truth Social, Donald Trump’s social network, the former president launched a video with a cartoon version of himself who rips his t-shirt in half to reveal a superhero outfit. 

The NFTs cost $99 and those who buy them are entered into a drawing to win meetings like a gala dinner or a game of golf with Trump. 

Aston Martin Launches NFTs

Automakers like Lamborghini, Porsche, and Chevrolet have all launched NFT collections. Now, Aston Martin, a leading name in luxury, has announced that it will be doing the same. Aston Martin announced that it has teamed up with Tiny Digital Factory to develop a new NFT collection. 

The collection will feature 3,000 collectibles. As part of the launch, Tiny Digital Factory will bring three Aston Martin cars to its Infinite Drive NFT racing platform. These include the current Vantage V8, Vantage GT3, and the 1980 Vantage V8 that was featured in a James Bond movie. 

White Castle NFTs Raise $25k for Team Members In Need

December 17 is the anniversary of the launch that was the result of White Castle teaming up with Doodle Labs. In celebration of White Castle’s 100th birthday, the two launched an NFT collection that featured 5,001 digital collectibles. 

A large portion of the proceeds White Castle generated from the launch was promised for team members in need. Well, White Castle kept that promise and the NFT campaign raised $25,000 for employees who need financial support. 

The money will be added to the White Castle Team Member Relief Fund. The fund provides team members in need who apply with up to $1,500 in grant funds.
