Former U.S. first lady Melania Trump will launch NFT on Solana

Former U.S. First Lady Melania Trump is entering the world of non-playable tokens (NFT). In a new announcement, Trump says she plans to regularly release NFTs built on the Solana (SOL) blockchain through her website.

Trump's first NFT, titled “Melania's Vision” is available for purchase through Dec. 31 and will cost one SOL. It includes an audio recording by the former first lady, the Dailyhodl reports. Trump's NFT platform plans to hold an auction in January featuring digital artwork, physical artwork and “a physical one-of-a-kind accessory”. Part of the platform's proceeds will go to help children leaving the foster care system by providing resources to help them with computer science and technology, the announcement said. A Solana Labs spokesman told Decrypt that Solana has not requested Trump's NFT platform. “I wanted to let you know, to avoid confusion, that her choice to use Solana's blockchain was completely organic, and this project is not part of any Solana-led initiative”. Says Trump, “I am proud to announce my new endeavor at NFT, which embodies my passion for the arts and supports my ongoing commitment to children through my initiative “Be the Best”. Through this new technology platform, we will provide children with computer science skills, including programming and software development, that will help them succeed after leaving foster care”.
