Adewunmi Rasaq Babatunde, a Nigerian photographer, has made N740,000 after selling photos he took as NFTs.
He revealed that he sold three pictures on the trading site Opensea for 0.15 ETH apiece.
Adewunmi told Legit that it was his first sale of an image as an NFT and that it wasn’t easy when he initially started.
The young man stated that it took him approximately 4 months of waiting and predictability before a breakthrough actually happened.
“It’s quite hard and mentally draining,” he said, “because it took me four months before I made my first sale.” As well as hustling for visibility on Twitter, which is a form of a marketplace, I help other artists retweet their works to be seen by collectors because they did the same for me.
(Making friends in general because that’s what the community should be about) joining spaces to talk about my works and how they were all brought to existence.
“Also, My Metamask wallet got compromised twice and I felt like giving up but nothing comes easy. So I would say continuity brought this, this isn’t just a solo winning for me, it’s a sign that the community is here for artists and artists are the new celebrities. It’s our time and we should continue supporting ourselves.”
