Oscar and Academy Award Winner Anthony Hopkins has sold out his NFT in 10 minutes. At its announcement, the debut NFT collection, titled “The Eternal Collection”, represented one of the biggest celebrity-backed collections in the NFT space. The Collection is one of 1000 pieces of NFT art that shows the actor as the archetypes he has portrayed on screen over his decades-long acting career.
The NFT collection was created in partnership with an NFT and Web3-focused design agency, Orange Comet, Inc.
