Melania Trump Sells Hat For Over 1,800 Solana Worth $173,000January 26, 2022 6:55 pm
Melania Trump has been dipping her toes into the Crypto/NFT world for a while now and it’s paying off big time.
First lady Melania Trump has already released several NFT collections the most notable one being a photo of her eyes called “Melania’s Vision”.
In her latest crypto endeavor, Melania opened up a crypto auction called the Head of State collection which was auctioned off for over 1,800 Solana worth $173,000.
The winning bidder received the white hat Melania wore at her first official state visit, an NFT signed by Melania Trump, and a painting signed by Melania.
The hat sold for over $173,000 but missed its targeted goal of $250,000 but to be honest $173,000 for a hat and an NFT sounds like a successful auction to me.

The Head of State Collection commemorates the Trump Administration’s first official state visit, and features three important one-of-a-kind signed items:

Following the traditional arrival ceremony, Mrs. Trump and Mrs. Macron visited the National Gallery of Art, and attended a joint press conference in the White House. Mrs. Trump wore the iconic broad-brimmed, one-of-a-kind hat and an asymmetrical Michael Kors suit to all of the day’s events.
