Former First Lady Melania Trump shocked many people on Twitter with her latest tweet.

Melania Trump just tweeted out “it is widely reported that Bitcoin’s market cap exceeds USD$1 Trillion.  Today marks the 13th anniversary of the Bitcoin Genesis Block.  Happy Anniversary”.

She also tweeted out a picture of Bitcoin’s Genesis Block, take a look:

Melania’ tweet come just days after she launched her latest NFT line called “Melania’s Vision” which can be bought with Solana.

Cointelegraph had more on the story:

Shortly after launching her own nonfungible token (NFT) project last month, former First Lady of the United States Melania Trump gave a shout-out to Bitcoin (BTC) on Twitter.

On Monday, Melania wished Bitcoin a happy birthday. The world’s largest cryptocurrency marked its 13th anniversary on M.

The former First Lady said, “It is widely reported that Bitcoin’s market cap exceeds $1 trillion.”

At the time of writing, BTC’s market capitalization is slightly above $880 billion, according to data from CoinGecko. The last time its market value stood above $1 trillion was in early December last year.

The post has amassed over 30,000 likes and more than 8,000 retweets at the time of writing.

Many people in the cryptocurrency community, including Morgan Creek Digital co-founder Anthony Pompliano, subsequently suggested that Mrs. Trump could be a “Bitcoiner” or be involved in the BTC industry.

Melania’s tweet is raising a lot of confusion considering President Trump on several occasions has called Bitcoin a scam and dangerous.

Raw Story got the scoop too:

On Monday, former First Lady Melania Trump took to Twitter to promote the 13th anniversary of the creation of Bitcoin, crowing about the trillion-dollar market capitalization of the digital currency.

This comes after former President Donald Trump has repeatedly made disparaging remarks about Bitcoin and cryptocurrency in general.

In June, he called Bitcoin a “scam against the dollar,” and in October, during a Fox News interview, he doubled down on this position, saying, “I’m a big fan of our currency and I don’t want to have other currencies coming out and hurting or demeaning the dollar in any way. If you look at a monetary system based on the dollar, if you start losing credibility, all of a sudden you’re going to lose that strong monetary system. We have to be very careful about that.”
