Despite the generally booming market conditions and declining user interest in digital collectibles, Welsh actor, director, and producer Anthony Hopkins has had his first NFT collection sell out in less than 10 minutes.
“The Eternal Collection,” a project featuring 1,000 original works of cinematic art inspired by various performances of the actor throughout his film career, was released in partnership with NFT design studio Orange Comet.
According to the collection’s description on OpenSea, the body of work “conceptualizes an interpretation of the various character archetypes Sir Anthony Hopkins has represented over the course of his distinguished film career, taking its tremendous force from his fascinating body of art.”
Each NFT had a mint price of 0.25 ETH, or about $325, while the collection’s current floor price is 0.69 ETH, or about $885. Notably, Hopkins is giving out personalized NFTs, an autographed art book, and a Zoom call to NFT holders who enter the contest.
“Many thanks to all of you for making this such a great success! Oscar winner Anthony Hopkins’ first NFT collection sold out on OpenSea in a matter of minutes, according to Orange Comet CEO Dave Broome.
Hopkins has recently added an ENS domain to his Twitter profile and has previously shown interest in Web3 and NFTs. Additionally, he appeared in the science fiction movie Zero Contact, which was distributed through the NFT service Vuele.
