Michael Cohen, the former lawyer of erstwhile United States President Donald Trump, will display and auction a non-fungible token of the first page of his memoir written while serving his prison term, NFT platform and curated marketplace ArtGrails has announced.

The ArtGrails NFT exhibition will run from December 1 through December 12.

The successful bidder will receive the original manuscript, which was handwritten by Cohen while serving the first days of his federal sentence in New York’s Otisville Prison, as well as an NFT-backed video of Cohen working on the memoir’s first pages from his holding cell. The video, recorded by an unnamed colleague, was filmed just before the former Trump attorney was sent back to his luxury Park Avenue apartment to serve the rest of his term.

Bidding will begin on December 1 at 5 PM Eastern Time and will go on until December 12, 5 PM Eastern Time; the auction is accessible via www.artgrails.com. In addition to the manuscript, ArtGrails is releasing a set of fixed price Cohen’s prison badge in an NFT Edition release on December 12 at 4 PM Eastern Time, which will feature three different levels of rarity - Open, Gold and Grail.
