Melania Trump Marks Bitcoin's 13th Anniversary

Bitcoin has officially become a teenager — with 13 years passing since its genesis block was mined.

Now, the milestone has been marked by someone rather unexpected… Melania Trump.

On Twitter, the former first lady congratulated Satoshi Nakamoto for his invention — and bizarrely added:

"It is widely reported that Bitcoin's market cap exceeds USD$1 Trillion."

This hasn't been true for some time — and the latest CoinMarketCap data puts Bitcoin's total valuation at $887 billion.

Melania's endorsement is especially intriguing considering how her husband, Donald Trump, has repeatedly expressed his opposition to cryptocurrencies.

Back in June, he warned that Bitcoin "seems like a scam" — adding that he doesn't like another currency competing against the dollar.

And just last month, he told Fox News that the crypto markets could one day explode — making the dot-com bubble look tame by comparison.

Melania launched her own range of NFTs last month on the Solana blockchain. At the time, she said the collection "embodies her passion for the arts."
