This is the story of a 12-year-old London-based boy, Benyamin Ahmed. The young coder has made a little fortune selling pixelated doodles, Weird Whales NFT, to a huge number of crypto fans. Ahmed’s interest in whales and coding has given this 12-year-old a strong base for his financial future.
Crazy selling weird whales NFT
His first NFT collection, which he launched earlier comprises 40 vivid, pixelized symbols called Minecraft Yee Haa. The collection didn’t garner enough attention.
Later in June, he started to code Weird Whales – his second NFT collection – which highlights 3,350 pixelated whales. Each with striking characteristics. To his surprise, when he launched his collection in July it immediately sold out in less than 9 hours.
Ahmed didn’t own a bank account
The 12-year-old genius didn’t have a customary bank account. He rather keeps all his income in a crypto wallet. His viral collection acquired him a sum of 80 Ether tokens, worth about $248,000 at that point. He likewise gathers a 2.5% commission each time those NFTs sell in the market. That secondary sell procured him another 30 Ether
He says; “It might be early proof that, in the future, maybe everyone doesn’t need a bank account and just has an ether address and a wallet.”
Going ahead, Ahmed is chipping away at another superhuman NFT project. He predicts that a lot more effective NFT collection will have a meme component.
