The first non-fungible token of the former first lady of the United States will go on sale this holiday season. Named Melania's Vision, it uses watercolor art by Marc-Antoine Coulon. Its goal is to embody the "cobalt blue eyes" of Mrs. Trump and to deliver "an amulet to inspire" the collector.

Although NFTs have been around for a while, there are still many people around who don't take them seriously. However, it looks like more celebrities are joining the NFT craze and it's only a matter of time until they go mainstream. Now, the time has come for the former first lady of the United States, Melania Trump.

One of the latest messages that Mrs. Trump posted on Twitter reads the following: "Excited for this new venture, which combines my passion for art and commitment to helping our Nation’s children fulfill their own unique American Dream. #MelaniaNFT MelaniaTrump.com" and is accompanied by the image of a press release that was issued earlier today.  

According to the aforementioned press release, the NFT is called "Melania's Vision" and will only be available for purchase until the end of the year. The NFT, which is a watercolor art by Marc-Antoine Coulon, uses the Solana blockchain and costs 1 SOL or roughly US$150. Credit card payments via MoonPay are also supported.

A portion of the proceeds (no percent disclosed, sadly) will support the Be Best initiative which is backed by Melania Trump and provides foster community children with technology and computer science skills.

Mrs. Trump will release NFTs on a regular basis, and next month she scheduled "a one-of-a-kind auction of historical importance" that focuses on both digital and physical artwork, but will also offer a physical "one-of-a-kind accessory" to those interested. We will get back to this topic as soon as we find out more, so stay tuned.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
