1,000 NFTs (10 Unique and Random Signature Animation NFTs and 990 Unique 1 of 1 images based on the 10 different archetypes) are included in the collection, which was revealed in August and immortalizes Sir Anthony Hopkins’ diverse archetypal interpretations of The Eternal.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit Inner-City Arts, one of the most successful arts education organizations in the United States that empowers young people to engage in the creative process.
The launch and successful sale of the collection shows the enthusiasm of fans, as well as how the NFT trend continues to grow. Statistics from Statista show that the aggregated NFT sales value over 30 days in September 2022 was roughly 25.5 million dollars.
