There has been a rise in digital technology which have prompted an adaptation of cryptocurrency as well as blockchain technology.

Artists have adapted to the changes in tech and have started to produce and sell their art digitally as non-fungible tokens. Some Malaysians have even made millions in the process.

Pushing the boundaries of “art” is Indonesian man Ghozali , whose everyday selfies have proven a hit in the NFT community.

The 22-year-old from Semarang, Central Java also known as @Ghozali_Ghozalu on the NFT trading platform OpenSea, snapped selfies of himself “standing in front of the computer day by day” for five years from 2017 to 2021.

His collection of selfies is well on its way to surpassing US$1 million in volume, as 293 ETH or US$986,485 (RM4,126,790) in sales have taken place so far at the time of writing.

 

Ghozali had priced the NFTs at US$3 (RM12.5) each when he first launched the collection on Sunday, (9 January).

 

Why the popularity?

Some reports state that his NFT collection was promoted by Indonesian celebrities such as chef Arnold Poernomo, and Indonesian sneaker and streetwear entrepreneur Jeffry “Jejouw” Jouw.

Poernomo said that he and other investors “bought in planning to help Ghozali Ghozalu earn extra income.”

The “Ghozali Everyday” collection was never intended to be such a hit, as Ghozali explained via Twitter that before he minted his selfies as NFTs, he was merely using the photos to make a video edit.

 

Ghozali has also told the NFT community to take care of his photos.

“You can do anything like flipping or whatever but please don’t abuse my photos.”

“Or my parents will be very disappointed at me,” he added.

 

 

Kudos to Ghozali for the out of the box thinking! We can’t wait to see what else he does in the future.
