Academy Award winner Anthony Hopkins sells out NFT collection in minutes
Oscar award-winning actor Sir Anthony Hopkins has sold out his debut NFT collection “The Eternal Collection” in under 10 minutes.
The collection, created in partnership with Orange Comet Inc, an NFT and Web3-focused design agency, features 1000 original cinematic art pieces inspired by different performances within the actor’s long career.
According to the collection’s description on OpenSea, the body of work “conceptualizes an interpretation of the vast character archetypes Sir Anthony Hopkins has portrayed over his illustrious film career, drawing its potent energy from his stimulating body of art.”
The creative visuals and animations with names like, “The Jester”, “The Lover”, “The Ruler”, “The Rebel”, “The Giver”, and “The Eternal”. Each represents the various archetypal characters played throughout the Hollywood actor’s career.
The NFT, and Web3-focused design agency, Orange Comet Inc alleged that the collection’s sellout was the fastest in OpenSea’s history, though Cointelegraph was unable to confirm the claim prior to publication.
