Table of Contents

On February 17th, US local time, former US President Trump launched a line of gold sneakers named The Never Surrender High-Top Sneaker at a global sneaker exhibition. Priced at $399, only 1,000 pairs were available. Within hours of their launch, these sneakers were sold out. Due to high demand, their resale price quickly escalated to as high as 260,000 Hong Kong Dollars.

Interestingly, Trump also highlighted that these sneakers could be purchased with Bitcoin. Despite his initial skepticism towards Bitcoin in 2021, he conveyed a different stance in a March 2024 CNBC interview, acknowledging Bitcoin as a viable alternative currency. He affirmed that if re-elected as President, he would not oppose Bitcoin.

For the average person, Trump’s sneakers, priced at $399 a pair, are quite expensive. So, how long would it take for a Bitcoin miner to accumulate enough to afford these sneakers?


Consider the Antminer S21, one of the most efficient mining machines currently available. The S21 boasts a hash rate of 200T and consumes 3500W of power. It mines about 0.00031 Bitcoins daily. As of March 2024, this equals a mining value of approximately $21.7 per day. Factoring in electricity costs, the net daily profit is around $17.5. Thus, it would take about 23 days of mining with an S21 to earn enough Bitcoin to buy a pair of these gleaming gold Trump sneakers.
