Ghozali had actually taken a practically expressionless image of himself in front of his computer nearly every day between the ages of 18 and 22. He meant the images to be absolutely nothing more than a visual journal and had actually initially planned to make a timelapse video from them and never ever anticipated anything to come of them. He apparently uploaded the images to the NFT site as a little an experiment, never ever actually expecting any of them to sell, entitling the project “Ghozali Everyday”.

A 22-year-old Indonesian trainee has become a millionaire virtually over night by selling 5 years worth of selfies as NFTs. Sultan Gustaf Al Ghozali from Semarang, Indonesia, uploaded over a thousand images to the NFT platform OpenSea. The images were initially priced at simply $3 each.
