Each Hopkins NFT comes with a random widget. Besides the NFT, buyers can get physical works with the actor's signature or attend an intimate meeting. Hopkins will also personalize the messages and secretly transfer them to the buyer's wallet.

In the description, he says the release of NFT is one of the ways to expand into the metaverse. Actor born in 1937 is famous for his role as Dr. Robert Ford in the movie Virtual World.
