The popularity of NFTs has been on the rise in 2021 and it continues to explode. The latest interesting news involves the firmer US First Lady Melania Trump.
The online publication the Daily Hodl notes that she is jumping into the world of non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
In a new announcement, she explained that she plans to release NFTs built on the Solana (SOL) blockchain at regular intervals through her website.
Trump’s first NFT, titled “Melania’s Vision,” is available for purchase until December 31st and will cost one SOL. As the online publication mentioned above notes, it includes an audio recording from the former First Lady.
Another issue worth mentioning is that a rep from Solana Labs tells Decrypt that Solana didn’t solicit Trump’s NFT platform.
“I wanted to inform you, to avoid any confusion, that her choice to use the Solana blockchain was completely organic, and this project is not part of any Solana-led initiative.”
Trump said the following:
“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 continued and explained the following:
“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.”
Check out the complete official announcement in order to learn what she had to say.
