Non-fungible tokens, or NFTs, are all the rage these days. These digital assets took over in 2021 as big brands, celebrities, and sports stars launched collections of their own. Other collections, like Bored Apes Yacht Club, Crypto Punks, and more saw dramatic gains in value.
However, while we tend to focus on the most popular projects, there are some projects that are making their creators millions of dollars, but remain relatively underground. One of those collections is known as Ghozali Everyday.
What Is Ghozali Everyday
Ghozali Ghozalu is a 22 year old Indonesian man who became somewhat of an overnight celebrity thanks to his NFT collection. The collection is nothing more than a bunch of selfies that the 22-year old sold on OpenSea.
So, what is the collection?
It features selfies taken by the 22-year old that he took every single day from the time he was 18 to the time he turned 22, pictures that were taken every day from 2017 through 2021. In his own description, Ghozali said the pieces in the collection are “really a picture of me standing in front of the computer day by day.”
The Collection Goes Viral
After launching his collection, Ghozali was pleasantly surprised to see what a success it would become. The images became a meme, spurring significant demand. Now, around a half a million dollars, or more, worth of these NFTs sell during some days.
Don't Miss the Next Big Story
That’s not bad for a collection that started with a base price of around $350 worth of ETH.
The collection even hit as one of the top 40 on OpenSea’s 24-hour trading volume.
At the moment, the cheapest asset in the collection is on sale for about half an ETH, working out to about $1,500, but that could change quickly. Not to mention what it means for Ghozali. At the current floor price, if every one of the 933 NFTs in the collection were to sell at the floor price, it would bring the value of the collection to $1.4 million, a massive climb from the floor price of $3,000 for the whole collection when it was first launched.
At one point, the floor on the collection was nearly 1 ETH, bringing the value of the collection as a whole to around $3 million.
Why Are We Sharing This Story?
So, some guy has made massive amounts of money selling his collection of selfies, so what? Well, there’s a reason we’re sharing this story.
You see, the NFT industry is about immortalizing art while making it possible to verify, with 100% accuracy, the owner of that art. Moreover, we’ve said from the beginning that those who get in early will have the biggest opportunities to earn in the industry, and that getting in as a collector, or even a creator, is relatively simple thanks to the massive and outspoken community surrounding digital art.
This is proof to everything that we’ve been saying.
Changes over time, as outlined by the selfies in this collection, are both art and the preservation of history. Moreover, Ghozali wasn’t a famous artist before the launch. This collection validates that digital assets and art will remain valuable while validating our statement that anyone can be successful in these early days of the industry.
The Bottom Line
The bottom line is that it’s time to dive into NFTs. Whether you do so as a collector or a creator, now is the time. As the industry grows, more and more people that decided to get involved will be sharing their own “how I became a millionaire,” stories. Don’t miss out on that opportunity!
