The whistleblower Edward Snowden will auction NFT artwork via a live stream. Will it sell out like Donald Trump Digital Trading Cards?

The crypto winter is no hindrance for public figures to drop their NFT collections. PleasrDAO announced PleasrHouse’s first episode with the whistleblowers Edward Snowden and Daniel Ellsberg, where they will auction NFT artwork for Freedom of the Press. The show will be live at 3 PM EST Thursday.

Last month, another American public figure, former President Donald Trump, released trading card NFTs.

Chris Eberle, the head of marketing at PleasrDAO, says that Edward Snowden and Daniel Ellsberg came up with the idea to co-create a piece paying tribute to Ellsberg and his release of the Pentagon Papers in 1971, titled “Wouldn’t You Go to Prison to Help End This War?”

This is not the first NFT release from Edward Snowden. Earlier in April 2021, he auctioned an NFT titled ‘Stay Free’ for Freedom of the Press Foundation. Edward Snowden has been supportive of cryptocurrencies and refers to them as the next stage of money.

Edward Snowden Made a Sarcastic Remark to Donald Trump Digital Trading Cards 

In mid-December last year, the former President jumped on the NFT bandwagon with the Donald Trump Digital Trading Cards. The NFTs got sold out within hours and raised approximately 648 ETH, roughly $785,000 as per the ETH rate during the sale.

The Trump NFTs offered various perks like dinner with the former president and a round of golf on the Trump estate. However, within a month, the NFTs lost momentum. The floor price is down to 0.17 ETH from a peak of 0.84 ETH, while the NFT sales are down from 2,855 to 96, according to OpenSea.
