Zoe Roth, or more popularly known as the girl from the “Disaster Girl” meme, has sold the image as an NFT for almost $500,000.
Roth sold the image as a non-fungible token to pay off student loans and will donate the rest to charity.
The image was bought by a Dubai-based music production company for $495,491 worth of the cryptocurrency Ether.
The infamous meme shows Roth smirking towards the camera while a house burns behind her.
The image was taken by Zoe’s dad during a controlled burn of a house donated to the local fire department in 2005.
Zoe and her dad David will keep the copyright of the image and will receive 10% of any profits earned from future sales.
