Anthony Hopkins acquires Ethereum Domain Name
Academy Award winner Actor Anthony Hopkins is the latest celebrity to drop his Ethereum domain name on social media. He joins the club where a number of other public figures are using their Ethereum Name Service as Twitter usernames.
Two days back, the 84-year-old Welsh actor altered his verified Twitter name to a crypto wallet address.
This naming system is simply based on the Ethereum blockchain. It is comparable to the Domain Name Service that matches IP addresses to simple website names. In Hopkins’ case, it turns his complex wallet address “0x5b4b7f43140e79a4452408ce10dd64fd17d8a2e5” into the easily readable name i.e. “AHopkins.eth.”
It isn’t the first time Anthony Hopkins has shown an interest in Web3 space. His latest sci-fi movie “Zero Contact” was the first feature film to be distributed as an NFT late last year. This release skips the traditional theater release route.

Further, after his Twitter handle update, Anthonoy Hopkins asked fellow celebrities Snoop Dogg, Jimmy Fallon, and Reese Witherspoon for suggestions on which NFT he should snap up.
Fallon answered: “There are a bunch of great artists out there, and it’s a fun community in general. But, as the great Aaron Neville once said, ‘I don’t know much — but I know I love you.’ And that may be all you need to know. DM me.”
The TV host and comedian is an NFT owner in popular collections including the Bored Ape Yacht Club and Moonbirds. Rapper Snoop Dogg is opening a Bored Ape NFT-themed pastry shop in Los Angeles. While Witherspoon is a Web3 champion whose media company Hello Sunshine is teaming up with the NFT collective World of Women for films and TV shows.
An NFT is a unique cryptoasset with a digital fingerprint that cannot be reproduced. This means that it can’t be substituted by another such token.
Suggestions have been floating that the NFT space is weakening following a record-breaking growth in 2021, but recent data raises doubts regarding that notion.
According to reports, collectors sent $37 billion to NFT marketplaces in the first quarter of 2022. This is a 183% jump from 2021 or almost $308 million in daily payments. Last year, collectors sent $40 billion, or approximately $109 million in average daily payments, to various NFT marketplaces.
Another study found that California seized the top spot as the most NFT-obsessed state. With data exhibiting the term “NFT” was the most searched there compared to any other state in the past year. This high ranking could be attributed to the number of celebrity favors of NFTs, believed experts.
