Anthony Hopkins sees NFTs as ‘art in a new format’ – TechCrunch

As celebrities and athletes alike dip into the crypto sphere to endorse tokens or corporations, others want to NFTs as a technique to have interaction with followers.

NFT collections have been launched by celebrities together with Paris Hilton, Snoop Dogg, Steve Aoki and The Notorious B.I.G. (posthumously).

The latest entrant is two-time Academy Award-winning actor Sir Anthony Hopkins, who partnered with NFT digital collectible firm Orange Comet to launch his personal sequence, The Eternal Collection.

There are loads of explanation why one may launch an NFT challenge with their likeness. But for Hopkins, it’s about following his life motto of “everything is possible, give it a whirl and have a go.”

“NFTs, for me, are a blank canvas to create art in a new format,” Hopkins mentioned throughout a press briefing with TechCrunch. “It’s fun to be the oldest guy on the block. I’m interested and fascinated by young people and the younger generation — everyone seems younger than me now. Inspiration is reciprocal [and] I’m hoping to also return some inspiration.”
