• The images were created by Jon McNaughton, a well-known artist.

  • “[McNaughton’s] acclaimed style, creative message, and digital delivery align perfectly with Parler’s goal to move squarely into Web 3 technologies and partnerships that further our commitment to freedom of expression,” said Parler CEO George Farmer in a statement.

  • The move follows last month’s announcement by former First Lady Melania Trump that she would be releasing an NFT series featuring images of herself, also with Parler. Despite the fact that a portion of the proceeds will go to benefit charity, the announcement attracted some jibes on Twitter.

  • Part 1 of the Parler “Trump Legacy” series features a collection of 10,000 pieces of art derived from McNaughton’s hand-painted images, minted on Ethereum as ERC-721 tokens.

  • Presales will be available to whitelist subscribers starting on Jan. 20 for 0.10 ETH (roughly $320), with remaining tokens to be sold to the public later.
