A young 22 year old Indonesian college student has become one of the latest NFT millionaires by selling a collection of his selfies on the OpenSea marketplace.

Sultan Gustaf Al Ghozali is a computer science student from Semarang, Indonesia, and he recently converted and sold almost 1,000 selfie images as NFTs.

Ghozali had been taking selfies over a period of 5 years, from 2017 to 2021 – as a way to document his graduation journey. Ghozali took the selfies either standing or sitting in front of his computer, and then transformed them into NFTs and put them for sale on the OpenSea marketplace in December 2021.

Originally, Ghozali set the price for each NFT selfie at $3. However, some of them were sold for up to $3,000 (ETH 0.9).

Ghozali noted on Twitter:

“You can do anything like flipping or whatever but please don’t abuse my photos or my parents will very disappointed in me. I believe in you guys so please take care of my photos.”

While being interviewed by AFP, Ghozali said that he still hasn’t had the courage to tell his parents about the money he has made through his NFT sales. At the time of writing this post, the young NFT millionaire has over 25,000 followers on Twitter.

NFT collectibles are on the rise, with over $10 billion in NFT sales so far, and with DappRadar data revealing that the number of unique active wallets connected to Ethereum NFT applications grew by 43% since Q3 2021. 2022 looks like it’s going to be an even greater year for NFT, with NFT trading growing from $10.7 billion in Q3 2021 to #11.9 billion in the first 10 days of 2022!
