Recently, A reality TV star from the United States had made headlines all over the world after earning so much by selling her farts in a jar.
Now it’s time for another such interesting news, something more interesting.
This is story of a Indonesian college student Ghozali Ghozalo who turned nearly 1000 selfies into NFS’s (Non-fungible tokens) and has made nearly US$1 million.
What are NFTs?
A NFT is a non-interchangeable unit of data stored on a blockchain, a form of digital ledger. NFTs can also be associated with reproducible digital files such as photos, videos, and audio.
In simple words, NFTs are digital items that can be bought and sold using this blockchain technology.
Collection Of Nearly 1,000 Selfies :
Indonesian student Ghozali Ghozalo’s selfies converted into NFT have gone viral after local celebs started talking about the student’s collection that has achieved massive trading volume in just few days.
Ghozali’s collection of NFTs is full of selfies that he photographed over the spam of four years.
“I took photos of myself since I was 18 to 22 years old (2017 – 2021)…it’s really a picture of me standing in front of the computer day by day,” his OpenSea profile says.
The NFT collection contains only 933 images, suggesting that Ghozali’s selfies do not cover every single day in that time span.
According to Online reports, The photos were originally taken to be used in a school commencement video, but Ghozali later decided to turn those photos into a series of NFSs and sell them on the NFT marketplace OpenSea beginning this week.
How He Made US$1 Million..?
Imagine earning nearly US$3 just by selling one of your selfies, as of now you all might have already had a thought of “Ayioh Why didn’t I do this”?
Ghozali’s NFT collection was promoted by the Indonesian celebrity chef Arnold Poernomo on twitter and various members of the crypto community.
He tweeted “It may seems funny and as a meme” and said few other celebs joined hands with Ghozali to help him further.
Price Of Each Selfie?
Ghozali priced the NFTs at $3 each when he launched the collection on last Sunday, Jan. 9. Since then, the floor price for each NFT in the collection has risen to 0.4 ETH ($1,350), as per the reports.
The collection is on its way to surpassing $1 million in volume, as 277 ETH or $935,975 in sales have taken place so far.
Experts : Like most NFTs, it is still unclear whether Ghozalis’s tokens will retain their value in the long run.
