Popular meme sells for $500,000

One of the world most popolar memes has sold for $500,000.

The meme, known as burning house, features a young girl named Zoe Roth.

The image was created in 2005. Roth was 4 years old, when her family went to look at a house on fire in their neighbourhood in North Carolina.

Firefighters had intentionally set the blaze as a controlled fire, so it wasn’t a major incident.

Roth remembers watching the flames when her father, an amateur photographer, asked her to smile.

Now, after more than a decade of having her image all around the internet Roth has sold the meme for $500,000. She has sold it as a nonfungible token, or NFT.

She plans to use the money to help her pay her way through college.
