Why Is Foundation Recommended?
We recommend Foundation the best out of other dozens of NFT marketplaces for following reasons.
- NFTs get sold easier than other marketplaces
- NFTs get higher bids than other marketplaces
- Because the platform is invitation-only basis, there are less competitors and more chance to be collected.
The most characteristic feature of Foundation is of course the invitation-only system. Only artists who are invited by the existing creators already on Foundation can activate themselves as creators on Foundation and are eligible to mint their NFTs. Therefore if you are on Foundation and mint your work there, your NFTs have some sorts of “premium” value that let your NFTs get collected more easily for greater price.
This is why invitation for Foundation has been often considered as “a golden ticket”.
In other words, getting invited is not so easy and you will need some effort if you don’t have acquaintances who are already on Foundation. So get yourself connected to artist communities for your mission in the early NFT journey.
