According to her Twitter post, Melania Trump is selling an NFT titled “Melania’s Vision,” which contains a watercolor of her “cobalt blue eyes” along with “an audio recording of Mrs. Trump with a message of hope.”
“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 said in a Thursday statement shared on Twitter. She added:
“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.”
Trump noted that some of the proceeds from the first NFT sale will go towards supporting children in foster care. The NFT will be minted on the Solana blockchain, with a cost of 1 Solana. At press time, a single SOL was trading at $177.98.
In addition, the former first lady will release more NFTs in regular intervals, along with a “one-of-a-kind” auction scheduled in January 2022.
“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,” Trump writes on Twitter.
