Indonesian College Student Sells Selfies As NFTs Now Worth US$1 Million!

A college student from Indonesia managed to sell hundreds of his own selfies as NFTs on the OpenSea NFT art market platform.

The 22-year-old man named Ghozali from Central Java said he took advantage of the immense hype behind the NFT scene by uploading selfies he took every single day between 2017 and 2021.

Though the selfies were only of himself sitting in front of his computer, nothing particularly “artistic” from an artist standpoint, his collection titled Ghozali Everyday still managed to generate enough hype to sell out all 933 selfies.

According to Mashable, initially the selling price for each selfie NFT was at 0.001 ETH or US$3.28 or around RM13.72, but has since spiked in price by more than 2,400%, with the cheapest ones now being resold for at least 0.24 ETH or US$786 which is about RM3,288.07.


Ghozali initially only earned around 0.933 ETH or US$3,056 (RM12,784.16) after selling his selfies to first-time buyers, but with OpenSea royalties feature, which allows artists to collect fees whenever their art gets resold over and over, Ghozali now could potentially earn much more as demand for his selfies keep building. 

Recently, it was reported that the Ghozali Everyday collection has already seen no less than 314 ETH, which equates to just over US$1 Million or around RM4,183,300 which is a pretty impressive figure!

That’s a lot!

Ghozali took the selfies as a project for a video he’s intended to make for his graduation, where all his selfies would culminate in the last selfie taken on his graduation. 

He also said in a tweet that he hoped buyers would not misuse his images, “You can use my selfies to do whatever, but do not abuse my photos or my parents will be so disappointed in me,” he said. 

This is actually pretty impressive…
