Shares Of Trump Media & Technology Group Merger Surge 20%

After the announcement of Truth Social’s February launch, the shares of Donald Trump’s TMTG are witnessing a 20% surge. The SPACS earned a profit of $2.2 Billion after the close of trading. 

DWAC’s market capitalization settled at $60 per commodity ownership. 

Donald Trump’s Truth Social is set to launch in February 2022. It is claimed that the app will officially launch on 21st February 2022.

About TMTG

This is a company formed by the former US President, Donald Trump, in February 2021.

Devin Nunes announced that he would be the company’s CEO after he resigned from Congress.

TMTG’s only product till now is a social media platform called Truth Social. That too is not launched yet. It was claimed that it is set to release in its Beta version in November 2021.

After announcing the launch of Truth Social, SPAC and DWAC announced a merger with TMTG.

SPACs raise funds from investors by first selling the shares to the public. They then acquire unknown private companies.

Many of the SPACs investors were firstly unaware of the fact that their money would be used to finance Trump’s company.

TMTG was valued at $875 million on 21 October 2021.

Trump Media & Technology Group Valued At More Than $10 Billion

Before the announcement of the merger with TMTG, DWAC’s share was valued at $10. Later, after the announcement, Trump fans traded DWAC’s share $175, which is tremendously high.

When settled at $50, it values TMTG at a whopping sum of more than $10 Billion.  Despite having no launch, no business, and no users, this value is extremely high. This makes TMTG value more than anything Trump has acquired throughout his lifetime.

To date, Trump has not “completed its merger with DWAC or made associated securities filings.” But if it happens, Tump and Dwac investors are likely to gain huge profits.

But, DWAC earlier in its SEC filing represented having “not selected any specific business combination target, and we have not, nor has anyone on our behalf, initiated any substantive discussions, directly or indirectly, with any business combination target.”

Media houses reported the discussions of DWAC CEO with Trump even before the former started trading.

If this is true that the deal was agreed to in advance, then DWAC’s SEC filing will be considered as a breach.

About Truth Social

TMTG recently proposed a social media platform called Truth Social.

The former United States President, Donald Trump, was banned from Twitter and Facebook in 2021. This happened probably due to the United States Capitol Attack in 2021. Following this, he also launched a site called “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump.”

On this site, he posted an announcement in a Short tweet format. However, this site was shut down in less than a month. The former President then made a prospect to launch a new social media platform- Truth Social.

Technology and Finance

The posts made by the users are called ‘Truths.’ The reposts are called ‘retruths.’ Similarly, the news feed is called as ‘Truth feed’. The idea is very similar to the social media site Twitter.

Mastodon, a free and open-source social network hosting software, is customized for Truth Social. After the announcement of Truth Social, DWAC also saw a rise of 400%.

The highly volatile stock of the company was compared to GameStop Short Squeeze.

Truth Social Raises $1 Billion from Investors.

TMTG said that along with SPACs and PIPE, Truth Social raised $1 billion in December 2021. The investors for the company are unidentified. The funding is expected to reach up to $3 billion, as reported by The Financial Times. According to the Digital World Stock Prices, the company is valued at $4 billion as of 3rd December 2021.

Donald Trump, in a statement, said that his company will be “in a stronger position to fight back against the tyranny of Big Tech.”

He also added, “America is ready for TRUTH Social, a platform that will not discriminate based on political ideology.”

Launch of TMTG’s Truth Social

This website is being regarded as Trump’s attempt to gain his megaphone back.

They claimed that it would have a beta trial in November, but it missed its deadline. This highly awaited social media site is set to launch in early 2022.

Jason Miller praised the platform Truth Social and said it might affect Twitter and Facebook by lowering their market share.
