The former US First Lady Melania Trump is jumping into the world of non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
In a new announcement, Trump says 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. It includes an audio recording from the former First Lady.
SOL, Solana’s native asset, is trading at $178.98 at time of writing and is up 0.71% in the past 24 hours.
Trump’s NFT platform plans to host an auction in January with digital artwork, physical artwork, and “a physical one-of-a-kind accessory.”
A portion of the platform’s proceeds will be directed to assist children aging out of the foster care system by providing resources to help them in the fields of computer science and technology, according to the announcement.
A representative 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.”
“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.
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.”
