Melania Trump is joining the technology world, following her tenure as First Lady of the United States.
In her first public project since the end of her FLOTUS tenure, Trump has announced that she’s selling a “Melania’s Vision” NFT in partnership with Parler. A Non-fungible token (NFT) is a digital item or entity such as GIFs, drawings or even items within video games.
“Melania’s Vision” features digital watwercolor-esque artwork of a set of blue eyes by Marc-Antoine Coulon, inspired by Trump’s own. The piece can be purchased from a limited period of December 16-31 for $150 from Trump’s own website. The artwork also includes an audio recording from Trump herself, described as a “message of hope.” A portion of its proceeds will benefit children who are leaving the foster care system.
“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,” Trump said in a statement, as shared on her Instagram account. “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.”
The former First Lady will continue to release NFT’s next year, which can be purchased using both credit cards and cryptocurrency. These pieces will also be part of an auction taking place in January, which includes both digital and physical art—plus a currently unnamed accessory.
