Melania Trump, the former First Lady of the United States made an unprecedented remark on the 13th anniversary of Bitcoin (BTC).
Ms. Trump took to Twitter to congratulate the biggest cryptocurrency on its 13th anniversary where she also attached the hex version of the first block:
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

Appropriately named “Block Zero”, the first block was mined on January 3, 2009, by none other than the creator of Bitcoin (BTC), Satoshi Nakamoto. The anniversary of the biggest cryptocurrency represents a major event in the history of cryptocurrencies, as high-profile members of the crypto community such as Jack Dorsey, former CEO of Twitter joined in on the celebration.
Melania Trump also highlighted the impressive market cap of Bitcoin (BTC) which did exceed $1 trillion during late 2021 but is now valued at $872 billion. Although the former First Lady surprised the whole community with her endearing message, she has already made her debut into the NFT realm by acquiring “Melania’s Vision” NFT which is a collab with Marc-Antoine Coulon. She took the opportunity to re-emphasize her acquisition in the Bitcoin (BTC) tweet.
These congrats come as a surprise mostly because former US President Donald Trump regards Bitcoin (BTC) as a scam and is an avid supporter of rigid crypto regulations. He does not shy away from any opportunity to give his anti-crypto remarks.
The members of the crypto community are more hopeful that Melania Trump’s pro-crypto stance could even influence the position of Donald Trump on cryptocurrencies.
