Melania Trump, Former First Lady of the US, Establishes NFT Venture
Melania Trump, the former first lady of the United States of America, has established a non-fungible token (NFT) and blockchain technology company, entering a burgeoning long list of celebrities hawking digital artefacts in an attempt to cash in on the current fervor surrounding such assets.
The initial NFT, titled “Melania’s Vision,” is a water colour painting by Marc-Antoine Coulon that “epitomizes Melania’s cobalt blue eyes,” as per a statement from Melania Trump’s office. From December 16 to December 31, it will be available for purchase.
An NFT is a kind of crypto currency that utilizes blockchain technology to track the ownership of digital items. The blockchain acts as a public ledger, which enables anybody to check the legitimacy of the NFT. Earlier in 2021, superstars like Argentina’s Lionel Messi and Jamaica’s Usain Bolt debuted their own line of NFTs.
A percentage of the revenue from the Melania Trump NFTs, which will be delivered in periodic chunks, will also benefit youngsters transitioning out of the foster care centers.
“Through this groundbreaking technology, we will equip youngsters with computer science skills, including that of design and software development, that will enable them to succeed after they leave the foster care system,” Melania stated.
