Former President Trump had a gathering at Mar-a-Lago for supporters who bought in heavily to his NFT cards.

  • Ryan Selkis, founder of data firm Messari, who has been heavily involved in lobbying to defend the crypto industry, got invited to speak at the dinner.
  • Selkis blasted the administrative state and extolled crypto's potential to defend dollar dominance. Then Trump touted his NFTs.

What they're saying: "I wanna say the crypto thing has really been amazing what's happened in the last short period of time," Trump says in the video.
