Melania Trump’s office stated that the first NFT is a watercolor painting of “Melania’s Vision”, which incorporates her cobalt blue eyes. Marc-Antoine Coulon created the painting.
The NFT will be available for purchase on melaniatrump.com between Dec. 16 and Dec. 31 at a price of 1 SOL, the cryptocurrency of the Solana blockchain protocol, or about $150.

As a further benefit, a portion of proceeds from Melania Trump NFTs, which will be released on a regular basis, will also support children aging out of foster care.
“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,” said Melania.
Now that Melania Trump is offering her NFTs, she is part of an ever-growing list of celebrities.
