Melania Trump joins the list of celebrities endorsing NFTs. The digital asset that has taken been a rage on the internet seem to have greatly influenced the former US lady as well.
The designer and entrepreneur getting on the crypto craze has launched her first NFT venture. The new venture is selling a ‘series of tokens’ on the platform which is powered by the MAGA hellsite Parler that has a significant user base of Donald Trump supporters.
The first NFT, named “Melania’s Vision”, is a watercolor art by artist Marc-Antoine Coulon, and “embodies Melania’s cobalt blue eyes,” as per the statement (via Reuters). One can get that stunning pixel of her cobalt blue eyes just for around $150 and there will be an audio ‘message of hope.’ The auction that began on December 16 will continue till December 31. Notably, a portion of the proceeds from this platform which will be released in regular intervals will support children and provide “programming and software development, to thrive after they age out of the foster community.” Melania in her official Twitter handle further mentioned a one-of-a-kind auction of historical importance that will be showcased 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. #MelaniaNFT https://t.co/XJN18tMllg pic.twitter.com/wMpmDDsQdp
