'Side-eyeing Chloe' Clem to sell iconic meme

The image has become a popular meme for expressing concern.

Published

on

A young girl who became an internet sensation when a photo of her went viral is now selling a Non-fungible token (NFT) for thousands of dollars at auction.

NFTs are unique digital tokens which are often attributed to art that has no physical representation.

Chloe Clem, now 10, became famous in 2013 when her mother shared her unimpressed reaction to a surprise Disneyland trip online.

The image has become a popular meme for expressing concern.

An NFT provides a digital certificate of ownership for the piece, but bears no copyright. Therefore the winner of the auction will own the digital token representing the meme, but not the meme itself.

NFTs are usually bought in cryptocurrencies, so the transaction is recorded on a publicly available ledger called the blockchain.
