Former first lady Melania Trump releases first NFT on new platform
Former first lady Melania Trump announced on Twitter Thursday that she is launching a non-fungible token (NFT) platform.
The first NFT for sale is a watercolor portrait of Trump’s eyes called “Melania’s Vision,” available for 1 SOL (~ $188 USD) between December 15 and December 31, 2021.
Trump also intends to release more NFTs in January 2022 and will allegedly donate some of the proceeds to children aging out of the foster care system.
Parler, a right wing social media platform, powers Trump’s new NFT endeavor. Parler had come under fire earlier this year for its connection to the January 6 U.S. Capitol riot and faced difficulty remaining online as major web hosts like Amazon Web Services cut it off.
The crypto payment infrastructure firm MoonPay is facilitating credit card payments for Trump’s NFTs. Based in the UK, MoonPay has been helping celebrities like Post Malone and Jimmy Fallon get into NFTs.Source
