Ghozali Ghozalo, an Indonesian student, is the latest NFT millionaire after he traded a set of selfies of himself into an NFT collection. The collection which went viral attracted massive trading volume, crossing the $1 million mark, based on the data available on OpenSea.

Ghozali’s unique collection of NFTs comprises selfies that the 22 years old photographed for four years.

His pictures on OpenSea number about 933 NFT selfies as he has been taking selfies for four years. He appears to have more but would not be dropping them to his NFT collection soon.

“For the next few years, I won’t be listing,” he tweeted.

The celebrity college student also requested buyers not to misuse his pictures, or “my parents will feel very disappointed in me.”

The selfie NFT collection, which Ghozali put together, initially started with a floor price of just ETH 0.001. Then, however, it increased to ETH 0.2 as early buyers began flipping them for profits.
