Melania Trump is the latest celebrity to delve into NFTs and make cryptocurrency-related posts on social media.

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, Mrs. Trump wished Bitcoin a happy birthday. The world’s largest cryptocurrency marked its 13th anniversary on Jan. 3.

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

At the time of writing, BTC market cap is slightly above $880 billion, according to data from CoinGecko. Its market value last time stood above $1 trillion 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.

Others pointed to major anti-Bitcoin remarks made by Mrs. Trump’s husband,  former U.S. President Donald Trump, who repeatedly slammed Bitcoin in recent years, calling it a scam and arguing that it is based on “thin air.”

“This is a pretty cryptic divorce announcement, props,” one observer noted on Twitter.

The former First Lady officially announced her NFT platform in mid-December 2021, dropping her first digital collectible called “Melania’s Vision.” According to Melania Trump’s official website, the NFT sale was carried out on the Solana blockchain, with the auction ending on Dec. 31.
