Melania Trump celebrates Bitcoin’s 13th anniversary following her recent entry into the world of NFTs
Former United States First Lady, Melania Trump, has congratulated Bitcoin on its 13th anniversary, with the celebratory remarks coming a few short weeks after her announcement of the launch of her new NFT venture.
On Twitter Trump said, “it is widely reported that Bitcoin’s market cap exceeds USD$1 trillion,” and wished the cryptocurrency a happy birthday. According to Cointelegraph, at the time of writing, the BTC market value was slightly above $800 billion, with the last time the currency reached over $1 trillion being early December 2021.
Trump’s recent emergence in the crypto space became most noticeable after her launch of a digital watercolour NFT of her eyes titled “Melania’s Vision” in mid-December 2021 selling for 1 Solana (SOL) (approximately US$170).
The former First Lady has released the next of her NFT pieces titled “Head of State”, featuring another watercolour of herself dressed in white to be auctioned for a starting bid of 1415.86 SOL (approximately US$250,000).
Trump’s official statement on her NFT release has said that a portion of the profits made from the sales will be donated to children aging out of the foster care system.
