In Brief:

  • Ghozali Ghozalu’s ‘Ghozali Everyday’ NFT collection is now worth around $1M.
  • The collection is a series of the 933 selfies he took from 2017 till 2021.
  • Ghozali began to sell his NFTs for $3 each and is now ranking at 32 in a 24hr trading volume.

Indonesian college student Ghozali Ghozalu must have not thought that the selfies he took for making a Youtube graduation video in the future would create such commotion in the NFT community.

Ghozali’s NFT collection titled ‘Ghozali Everyday’ is a compilation of selfies that he took during a four-year period.

His OpenSea profile has “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,” written in it.

The collection features 933 selfies and he decided to sell them as NFTs in OpenSea this week.

When Ghozali launched the collection on Sunday, Jan. 9, he set the price for the NFTs at $3 each. Now the cheapest NFT of the collection sells for 0.36 ETH.

The collection peaked at around 1 ETH for each NFT two days later and has since dropped down to a floor price of 0.34 ETH with 295 ETH in traded volume, implying that the floor price is now worth around $1 million.

With a 72,000 percent increase in trading activity, the collection made it to the top 40, currently listed at number 31 on OpenSea based on the 24hr trading volume.

NFT giants like Indonesia’s famous chef Arnold Poernomo, who already uses one of Ghozali’s pictures as his profile image and has 5 million Twitter followers, were among the initial backers of Ghozali’s NFT collection.

His honest approach to the NFT world was to simply give it a shot and see what unfolded. The collection was then accelerated by meme culture. Last September the famous internet meme NFT, Side-Eyeing Chloe was sold for 25 Ethereum (75,000 USD) to Dubai-based music production company 3F Music.
