Melania Trump is officially trying her hand at the latest crypto craze, NFTs.

The former first lady announced that she will be selling an NFT, which is a non-fungible token, titled "Melania's Vision,” a watercolor of her “cobalt blue” eyes.

This marks her first public endeavor since leaving office almost a year ago.

According to a statement shared by Melania, the image will cost 1 Solana, a cryptocurrency worth about $180 as of Thursday morning.

The NFT is the first digital art to be sold on her newly launched platform.

"I am proud to announce my new NFT endeavor, which embodies my passion for the arts, and will support my ongoing commitment to children through my Be Best initiative," Trump said in the statement.

Melania said a portion of proceeds from the initial sales will go towards helping children aging out of the foster care system.

"Through this new technology-based platform, we will provide children computer science skills, including programming and software development, to thrive after they age out of the foster community,” reads the statement.

But while her NFT release might come as a shock to many, Melania has always been a walking meme, mostly unintentionally.

And memes sell particularly well in the crypto-space, which is why we’ve rounded up 1 items she should have released as NFTs ... instead of the watercolor of her eyes.

Classic Melania. It just doesn’t get any more iconic (and by that we mean disgraceful) than this.

Her Easter pic

Why are all of these creatures horrifying? TBH we’d pay big bucks for that creepy duck alone (and we don’t mean Donald).

We’d call this one...HAIRstory

Girlboss, gatekeep, and gaslight. The many looks of Melania.

Her medieval trip to the dentist

Is this what the dentist looks like in prison? But seriously, what are the pliers for? You can’t tell me this doesn’t look like something out of a scene in a horror movie.

Her pop art

Didn’t you know? This is hardly Melania’s first time in the art world, she’s long been an artiste.

Scratch that, this one belongs in The Louvre.

This one would be titled “Adventure is Out There” signifying Melania’s long-time desire to run far far away from her husband.
