It’s been reported that his earnings have reached an amount that exceeded one million, making his collection gaining even more traction after all the media attention. 

According to a Lifestyle Asia post, Ghozali’s NFTs selfies sold for 0.9 ETH, or roughly $3,000 at their peak. Ghozali’s collection grew to a total trading volume of 387 ethers, worth more than $1 million at the time this article was written.
