Shortly
after

launching
her
own
nonfungible
token

project
last
month,
former
First
Lady
of
the
United

Melania
Trump
gave
a

(BTC)
on

On
Monday,

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,

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.

Bitcoin
 in
recent
years,

calling
it
a
scam

and
arguing

noted

on
