Melania Trump, the former first lady, celebrates Bitcoin’s Genesis Block on the social network of crypto-lovers Twitter, pointing out that it is now common knowledge that BTC has a market of over $1 trillion.
Melania Trump and the Bitcoin Genesis Block
As per tradition, 3 January is the anniversary of Bitcoin’s Genesis Block, the commemoration of the first mined block on the Bitcoin blockchain. The 13th anniversary was celebrated yesterday.
Following the wave of Bitcoiners excited about the event, there is also a “new entry” in the crypto sector, the former first lady Melania Trump, who shared her wishes in a tweet:
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, #SatoshiNakamoto #MelaniaNFT pic.twitter.com/aZqNJFcZmd

“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, #SatoshiNakamoto #MelaniaNFT”.
A strong interest in the crypto queen from the wife of America’s former President that likely stems from the launch of her Non Fungible Tokens last month. Donald Trump’s wife emphasized that it is now widely acknowledged that the Bitcoin market now exceeds $1 trillion.
Melania Trump: from former first lady to crypto lady
Melania Trump seems to be transforming from a former first lady to a real “crypto lady”. This speech of hers to celebrate the most important event for Bitcoin and the cryptocurrency world is further confirmation that Melania Trump has largely dived into the crypto sector.
Right before Christmas 2021, Melania launched her limited edition NFT Art called ‘Melania’s Vision’ depicting her eyes.
The purchase was available until the end of last year, and, launched on Solana’s Blockchain, the price of the NFT was 1 SOL ($175 at that time). The proceeds from the sale of Mrs Trump’s NFT will then be given to her charity Be Best, which is dedicated to helping children.
Donald Trump ignores Bitcoin’s Genesis Block and criticizes crypto
While Melania Trump seems to want to establish herself as a ‘crypto lady’, her husband, Donald Trump, seems to want to continue to establish cryptocurrencies as a danger.
This happened just after the launch of the NFT Art “Melania Vision”, when in an interview, the former President of America explicitly criticized cryptocurrencies. Somewhat confusing, as when asked about his wife’s NFT he allegedly replied that “it’s going to be great!”.
Furthermore, Donald Trump is reported to have stated his disdain for cryptocurrencies, as he prefers the dollar and fears an unprecedented bust related to cryptocurrencies, believing the whole thing to be dangerous.
Nothing to do with his wife, who in her own tweet yesterday, wanted to emphasize that the Bitcoin market of over $1 trillion was a positive factor and not a danger.
