Al-Ghozali has been photographing his face almost daily since 2017. He was going to assemble a time-lapse video after graduating from university. However, after he decided to sell 933 selfies at the OpenSea NFT auction.
The starting price per NFT for one image was only $3. But soon an Indonesian celebrity drew attention to the lots of Al-Ghozali, after which the photos began to be bought for 800 and even 3000 dollars.
