New York City: Welsh actor, director, and producer Anthony Hopkins has had his first NFT collection sell out in just 10 minutes amid rising market circumstances and waning customer interest in digital collectibles.

The project, titled “The Eternal Collection,” was created in tandem with NFT design studio Orange Comet, and it contained one thousand unique works of cinematic art that were inspired by various roles that the actor has played during his career.

According to the collection’s description on OpenSea, it “conceptualizes an interpretation of the huge character archetypes Sir Anthony Hopkins has played during his distinguished cinematic career, pulling its tremendous force from his fascinating body of works.”

Characters with titles like “The Jester,” “The Lover,” “The Ruler,” “The Rebel,” “The Giver,” and “The Eternal” are all archetypes that the actor has successfully portrayed throughout the course of his long and successful career.

Each NFT was originally issued at a price of 0.25 ETH (around $325), however, the current floor price of the collection is 0.69 ETH ($885). Notably, Hopkins is giving out customized NFTs, a signed art book, and a Zoom call to NFT holders who enter a contest.

Recently, Hopkins added an ENS domain to his Twitter profile, demonstrating his ongoing interest in Web3 and NFTs. In addition, he played the lead role in the science fiction movie Zero Contact, which was made available on the NFT service Vuele.

Drops in All Measures of the NFT Market

Even more impressively, “The Eternal Collection” debuted with a bang despite the fact that the market as a whole has been struggling recently, particularly for NFTs. NFT trade volume has reportedly plummeted, falling by over 100% from its all-time high in January of this year.

Nearly $17 billion was exchanged in NFTs at the start of the year. September saw a 97% reduction in revenue to $466 million from July. This decline is consistent with the larger market slump and the worldwide market rout that began due to the European conflict, increasing inflation, and unsound monetary policy of the world’s central banks.
