After selling images of himself on OpenSea, Ghozali Ghozalu, 22, from Indonesia, has become an overnight sensation in the non-fungible token (NFT) arena.
“Ghozali Everyday” is a series of selfies taken by the 22-year-old every day from the time he was 18 to 22, spanning the years 2017 to 2021. The photos were auctioned for 0.001 ETH ($3.25) and sold out in a matter of days.
“It’s really a picture of me standing in front of the computer day by day,” On OpenSea, Ghozali explained the collection.
However, a few NFT collectors piled in during the sale, and it became a meme. The collection has received 194 ETH ($560,000) in sales thus far today. According to data from the NFT marketplace, Ghozali Everyday even made the top 40 on OpenSea’s 24-hour trading volume rankings, with a 72,000 percent increase in activity.
As of this writing, the cheapest NFT in the collection is available for 0.475 ETH ($1,500). Ghozali Everyday’s floor is valued close to $1.4 million with 933 NFTs in the collection, a significant increase over the $3,000 the Indonesian made in the first sale. The floor rose to just shy of 1 ETH ($3,250) a few hours ago, valuing the collection at roughly $3 million at the moment.
The huge NFT trade volumes that have characterised the start of 2022 have fueled interest in the Ghozali collection. OpenSea reported over $1.36 billion in volume in just the first ten days of January, putting it on track to break a new monthly trading volume record.
