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 https://t.co/XJN18tMllg pic.twitter.com/wMpmDDsQdp

The NFT collection is called Melania’s Vision. Tokens are a digitized watercolor painting by French illustrator Marc-Antoine Coulomb, paired with an audio recording of Trump’s voice.
NFTs are available for purchase from December 16 to December 31, 2021. The token price is 1 SOL (~ $ 179). Part of the proceeds will be used to support the initiative Be Bestsupervised by Trump.
In conversation with Breitbart the ex-first lady noted that she plans to release digital works on a regular basis.
According to press release, you can buy NFT for cryptocurrency and fiat through the MoonPay service. However, the latter denied this possibility.
While we encourage everyone to be involved in Web 3.0, we would like to clarify that we are not partnered with Melania, nor can users purchase her collection using this payment method.

“In a recent article Bloomberg MoonPay has been named a partner in Melania Trump’s new NFT project. The material contains a factual error, as MoonPay does not play any official role in this project. […] We would like to clarify that we do not cooperate with Melania, and users cannot purchase her collection using our service, ”the company wrote.
A Solana Labs spokesperson also said Decryptthat the company does not partner with Trump:
“I would like to inform you, in order to avoid confusion, that it is her personal choice to use the Solana blockchain. The project is not part of any of our initiatives. “
As a reminder, in December, Grandmaster Garry Kasparov released his NFT collection on the 1Kind platform.
