The Disaster Girl meme NFT
After converting the original copy of the meme into an NFT, she made up to US$500,000 which is roughly equivalent to AU$650,000. Furthermore, she will also retain the copyright over the NFT. This means that for any future sales, she would still receive a 10% share. Quite clever, innit?
According to Zoe Roth, she will be using the money to fund her education in college. She will also donate some to charity.
Currently, 3F Music studio in Dubai owns the disaster girl NFT. In a statement, the studio said, “Our management team is always in cooperation with some highly knowledgeable and experienced art advisers who believe that we must grow with technological movements that help us to not only promote our business but also to support artists and the art market.”
Indeed, the Disaster Girl NFT is a prized collection, as the internet meme spans more than 10 years. And without a doubt, it is one of the most popular memes on the internet. Overall, it has been used to represent evil intentions and the gains from others’ misfortune.
However, the actual story behind the disaster girl meme is not a sad one. According to sources, the fire in the picture was a controlled demonstration by the local fire department. It was set ablaze as an educational demonstration for the local kids.
Apparently, she is not the only one who has converted the meme into an NFT and made considerable money out of it. Zoe Roth, the disaster girl, mentioned that before selling the image, she had consulted other two popular meme subjects.
Well, disaster girl will now certainly do well for herself. Thanks to the NFTs (non-fungible tokens) that now allow artists to digitize and sell their artwork.
