Let’s dive into that news below to see what all the hubbub is about.

  • Melania Trump, the wife of former President Donald Trump, is creating her own platform to sell NFTs.
  • NFTs are non-fungible tokens tied to cryptocurrency and the blockchain.
  • This gives them a unique identifier that can make them one of a kind.
  • As a result, a market has formed around NFTs that can result in creators making a nice bit of cash from their sales.
  • Melania Trump is getting in on this too with her first NFT being a watercolor rendition of her blue eyes.
  • The NFT will also include an audio message inspiring hope.
  • The plans to sell NFTs kick off next month with Melania Trump noting each one will cost around $187.
  • The NFT is being sold via the Solana (CCC:SOL-USD) blockchain.
  • She also expects to hold a unique NFT auction that will include “digital artwork, physical artwork, and a physical one-of-a-kind accessory.”
  • The former First Lady also points out that the NFT business won’t have all the proceeds going straight to her.
  • Instead, a portion of them will go to charity.
  • Specifically, Trump wants to help children that are aging out of the foster care system.
  • However, she doesn’t say exactly how much of the money will go toward that cause.
  • Either way, crypto lovers will want to check back next month to see how Melania Trump’s NFT plans are playing out.
