Discover breakout web3 artists on Foundation

Zac Glover

    You can’t create without basic building blocks. And when it comes to digital art, Foundation is providing them. Here’s what you should know about this artsy NFT platform with a suite of creator tools.

    What is Foundation?

    Foundation is an art-focused NFT platform on Ethereum. It offers web3-native tools to collectors, creators, and curators of digital art. Some of its tools include Drops, Editions, and Worlds.

    Drops is a no-code solution to create up to 10,000 NFTs for the cost of minting one. Schedule your drop, randomize your art reveal, and easily split sales with collaborators. With Editions, you can issue various copies of a single artwork. Upload your art, select the number of editions, and set your minting price and duration. As for Worlds, it’s an intriguing feature inspired by the traditional art world. Worlds are user-curated exhibitions. You’ll curate art from various sellers (or based on a theme), set your curator fee, and share in the sales.

    Foundation was founded by Kayvon Tehranian and Matthew Vernon in 2020.
