People take selfies for a number of reasons. But in the end they are just selfies and they are priceless. Or are they?
A student's dreams of becoming a millionaire after finishing his studies prematurely came early after he received an unexpected windfall.
That is after he sold his selfies and they fetched him a staggering US$1 which is equivalent to R15 million. That is a very huge windfall.
Sultan Gustaf Al Ghozali, who studies computer science at a university in the central city of Semarang, has taken a picture of himself sitting in front of his computer almost every day for the last five years.
Sultan would take a selfie everyday hoping to use them as a video reel for his graduation.
That perception changed when someone introduced him to the little known block chain technology.
The 22 year old decided to upload the photos to NFT trading platform OpenSea under the title “Ghozali Everyday”.
The next time you think of taking a selfie, don't think nude. Just be imaginative because they could land you a whooping R15.
