Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) continue to soar in value, with the top 10 selling for a total of over US$5 million (NZ$7 million) in the last week alone.

If pixelated computer-generated images of cryptopunks and bored apes aren't your thing, however, then a new NFT featuring three pictures of former US President Donald Trump may be tempting.

But they'll cost you a pretty penny: Currently the asking price is 240 ether ($NZ1.4 million).

The images are of Trump before he became US President and feature him signing the bare chest of a woman who bears a striking resemblance to his ex-wife Ivana.

And it gets weirder. The pictures were once owned by an infamous artist, photographer and porn baron.

The photographs were found by Creatd co-CEO Jeremy Frommer in a large collection acquired from creditors of Bob Guccione, who launched Penthouse the pornographic magazine.

"They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and the Trump photographs are no exception," Frommer said.

"We have waited a long time to sell these priceless images which were captured decades before they took on the significance and symbolism they hold today."

Whoever pays the asking price for the NFTs gets ownership of three high resolution computer images on the blockchain plus three original, one-of-a-kind photographs in a gilded frame.

According to the marketplace listing "a significant portion of the proceeds will be donated to causes that are important to our creators", but no further details are provided.

"These pictures represent an opportunity to inspire conversation and debate perspectives, from sharing lighthearted wisecracks to ardent political judgments," Creatd co-CEO Laurie Weisberg said.

Following the announcement of the 'drop', as sales of NFTs have become known, the value of shares in Creatd jumped by as much as nearly 70 percent before settling around 40 percent higher than previously.

The sale comes shortly after Trump announced the creation of a new social media platform called TRUTH Social.

The former Celebrity Apprentice host said he created it to "stand up to the tyranny of Big Tech" after both Facebook and Twitter banned him after a mob of his supporters carried out a deadly insurrectionist attack on the Capitol building in Washington DC in January.

"We live in a world where the Taliban has a huge presence on Twitter, yet your favourite American President has been silenced," Trump said.

The site was defaced and held up to ridicule within hours of the announcement, with users able to sign up for accounts in the name of Trump and others associated with him.
