Back in 2017, an 18-year-old from Indonesia started taking a selfie of himself every day.

Ghozali Ghozalu was likely inspired by YouTube videos where creators show how they've gradually changed and aged over the years.

Now 22, he's taken a photograph in front of his computer every day without fail for five years — and has ended up becoming a sensation on OpenSea, the world's biggest NFT marketplace.

Trading volumes of Ghozali Everyday — his collection on the platform — have now surpassed $1.2 million, a life-changing sum of money for a man who is yet to graduate from college.
More than 500 people now own one of Ghozali's selfies — and the current floor price of 0.42 ETH means his selfies are selling for at least $1,300.

In one heart-warming tweet, Ghozali says:

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

'Thank You Guys'

Ghozali has been rather bemused by how popular his selfies have become — but has thanked his followers, adding "five years of effort paid off."

He has also been sharing some of the stories behind his selfies — one photo was taken after he went for a job interview, while others simply show him bored at home during lockdown restrictions or watching Netflix.
