McKayla Maroney is entering a new profession.

The 25-year-old gold medal-winning gymnast recently launched The McKayla Collection on the NFT marketplace OpenSea starting at 15 Ethereum (worth approximately $47,776). She thinks her auction will sell for over $1 million.

“There really has been a gap in sports and capturing iconic moments like that,” Maroney told TMZ Sports at Enso Art Gallery & Studio in Malibu, Calif. “And to put my meme out, I’m just so excited to do that because it’s something that meant a lot to me and it really changed my life.”

The listing includes digital art of Maroney’s “Not Impressed” meme made famous at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London after Maroney won a silver medal. 

It also comes with a private gymnastics lesson, a Twitter follow, a meet-and-greet and a signed copy of her upcoming book.

“In honor of the 2021 Olympic Women’s Gymnastics team wrapping up their competitions in Tokyo, I’m releasing my 1/1 Not Impressed meme,” the description of the auction states. “This will be the only one of its kind ever minted.”

NFT stands for non-fungible token, meaning the currency is unique. NFTs are one-of-a-kind pieces of digital art – including trading cards, music, AI or drawings – with intrinsic value that can be collected.

Ethereum is the largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization after Bitcoin. Initially released on July 30, 2015, it is the most actively used blockchain.

The Investor's Dream
The second "Visual Toy" about cryptocurrency and its universe that continues the exclusive collection on this theme. After the first Visual Toy, dedicated to the cryptocurrency itself, this visual toy is the other side of the coin. It represents, as its title tells us, the investor's dream, the current person and his financial hopes. A surreal fantasy of the dreams and longings of every investor, in this case the crypto investor. In this magical, happy and colorful dream, aspirations of all kinds intermingle, both the desire for great benefits, represented in a long animation that shows us a production cycle or series production that ranges from the gastronomic recipe of a two-ingredient cake. Bitcoin slice and Ethereum smoothie, passing through magic, represented in a fairy that transforms the cake into real money, which is sucked into a giant capsule to accumulate it and multiply it. The rest is full of investor aspirations, which appear in their dreams in the form of profits or screens that announce that values are rising steadily, as well as physical possessions, such as the sailboat, the helicopter, homes and other objects or possibilities. A dream full of happiness, fun and hope.
