Former US first lady Melania Trump announced an NFT initiative Wednesday, with part of the proceeds going to support children aging out of the foster care system.
Trump’s first NFT, called “Melania’s Vision,” is being auctioned right now. The NFT is a watercolor done by artist Marc-Antonie Coulon which “embodies Mrs. Trump’s cobalt blue eyes, providing the collector with an amulet to inspire,” according to the former first lady’s office.
The digital artwork is being sold for 1 unit of SOL and includes an audio recording from Trump.
“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,” Melania Trump said in a statement. “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.”
Melania’s Vision and the other anticipated NFTs will be released regularly exclusively on MelaniaTrump.com. In addition to crypto, collectors-to-be can purchase digital files via a credit card. The digital NFT file will be accompanied by the IRL art piece, and a one-of-a-kind accessory, exclusively from Melania.
