The man sold selfies as an NFT and the collection is now worth millions
A collection called “Ghozali Everyday“Contains a selfie taken by a 22-year-old man every day from 18 to 22 years old, covering the period 2017 to 2021. Ghozali sold the images for 0.001 ETH ($ 3.25) and sold them in a few days.
“It’s really a picture of me standing in front of a computer day after day,” Ghozali said of the OpenSea collection.
