NFT Collection Now Worth Millions of Dollars
Ghozali Ghozalu began taking daily selfies from when he was 18 years old in 2017 to 22 years old in 2021. The Indonesian later went ahead to create an NFT collection on OpenSea called “Ghozali Everyday.”
According to a description of the collection on OpenSea, Ghozali wrote “it’s really a picture of me standing in front of the computer day by day.” The Indonesian, in one of his tweets, said that there was a story behind every picture.
The collection comprised 933 items, and has seen sales worth 250 ETH ($841,000) at the time of writing. Ghozali sold the pictures for 0.001 ETH ($3.36) each. Meanwhile, the current floor price is at 0.29 ETH ($976). A few hours ago, one selfie was selling for around 1 ETH worth $3,371, bringing the total worth of the Ghozali Everyday NFT collection to ($3.1 million).
Meanwhile, the crypto community has been buzzing with excitement since the collection dropped, with many on Twitter praising the young man for his consistency, while others congratulated Ghozali on the status change overnight.
The latest development is a testament to the growing popularity of the NFT space. From celebrities to sports stars and major companies, the interest in the sector continues to wax strong.
Visa, which purchased its first NFT back in August 2021, later partnered with NFT artist Micah Johnson, to create a program that would help creators understand the sector, while helping them the necessary connections to grow their businesses
NFTs Could See More Growth in 2022
Although 2021 was an explosive year for NFT, there seems to be no signs of slowing down in 2022. OpenSea, which continues to maintain a hegemony in the NFT space, recently recorded an impressive performance.
Earlier in January, it was reported that the platform already raked on $2 billion dollars in monthly trading volume. With the close to 20 days still left in the month, it is possible that the volume could beat August 2021’s all-time high (ATH) of over $3 billion.
Shark Tank Investor Kevin O’Leary, in a recent interview with CNBC, stated that NFT could be bigger than Bitcoin. One of the reasons why the businessman is a believer of NFTs, is because they can prove ownership of real-world assets, as compared to paper records.
According to O’Leary:
“You’re going to see a lot of movement in terms of doing authentication and insurance policies and real estate transfer taxes all online over the next few years, making NFTs a much bigger, more fluid market potentially than just bitcoin alone.”
South Korean electronics manufacturing giant Samsung, announced that its 2022 smart TV, will support NFTs, with a platform enabling users to discover, purchase, and trade digital art via Samsung’s Neo QLED, MICRO LED, and The Frame.
