The Eternal Beings NFT project is composed of a large number of alien avatar NFTs that have been generated through computers. The data shows that altogether, there are a total of 11,111 NFTs in the particular project.
The reports reveal that each avatar had some kind of resemblance with the rapper. Each avatar had some resemblance to the rapper, whether it was fashion style, tattoos, hair, or looks.
