Melania Trump Puts Out First Image As Part Of NFT Investment
Former first lady Melania Trump announced on Thursday that she will be releasing her very own series of NFTs from Thursday, Dec. 16 to Dec. 31 in regular intervals, which have three elements: digital artwork, physical artwork, and unique physical accessories.
“I am proud to announce my new NFT endeavor, which embodies my passion for the arts, and will support my ongoing commitment to children through my Be Best initiative,” she went on to say in a recent press release. “Through this new 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.”
The NFT, titled “Melania’s Vision,” features a watercolor painting by Marc-Antoine Coulon of “Mrs. Trump’s cobalt blue eyes.” “Vision” will cost one Solana token (estimated to be around $150). It will also include an “audio recording from Mrs. Trump with a message of hope.”
The image, built on the Solana blockchain protocol, can be purchased with either the Solana currency or credit card payments. All of the former first lady’s NFTs will utilize Parler to power the platform behind them.
The series will culminate in a “one-of-a-kind auction of historical importance scheduled in January 2022, including three elements: digital artwork, physical artwork, and a physical one-of-a-kind accessory,” Trump’s office said.
A portion of the proceeds brought in from the former first lady’s NFT collection will go toward assisting “children aging out of the foster care system by way of economic empowerment and with expanded access to resources needed to excel in the fields of computer science and technology,” the press release said.
