Today the former first lady of the United States, Donald Trump’s wife Melania announced the upcoming launch of her very own NFT platform.
Posting to her official Twitter @melaniatrump, she stated she was ‘Excited for this new venture, which combines my passion for art and commitment to helping our nation’s children fulfill their own unique American Dream.’
Also added was the hashtag #MelaniaNFT, a link to where the NFTs will be released – MelaniaTrump.com – and a copy of a press release.
Melania Trump NFTs
The full announcement from the office of Melania Trump mentioned the first NFT will be named ‘Melania’s vision’, available to purchase for a limited period between December 16th – 31st, 2021.
That non-fungible token will be a watercolor artwork by Marc-Antoine Coulon, priced at 1 SOL. It will include an audio recording from Mrs Trump.
More NFTs will follow at regular intervals, with an auction scheduled for January 2022. A portion of the proceeds will go to childrens’ foster care charities. Melania has a history of charity work over the years, including with 4KIDS in Florida.
‘Through this new blockchain technology-based platform, we will provide children computer science skills, including programming and software development, to thrive after they age out of the foster community.’ Melania added.
Melania Trump’s NFTs will be available for purchase using Solana (SOL) or credit card payments through Moonpay.
Solana can be purchased on regulated cryptocurrency exchange eToro.
NFTs are potentially a good investment as the crypto markets may have found a bottom this week as no negative news came out of yesterday’s FOMC meeting. Bitcoin, Ethereum and Solana have since bounced several percent.
