What is Worlds?

  • A web3-native curation tool.
  • A new curation experience.
  • A new collector environment.

How many Worlds can I create?

There is no limit to the number of worlds a curator can create. Curate beyond your imagination — a world can represent different exhibits, events, and more.

Are Worlds smart contracts?

Worlds are NFTs that live in their own dedicated smart contract, where ownership is now represented with an NFT.

Where can I see the list of sellers added to my world?

By viewing the world landing page and clicking ••• on the right of the collection - you can see the wallet addresses that are on the allowlist.

Can I make changes to my allowlist after creating my world?

Yes - you can add more sellers to an allowlist by viewing the allowlist on your dashboard, and clicking “+ Add Sellers”.  You can also remove sellers from your allowlist by accessing your dashboard and clicking on the Allowlist tab. You can select the ••• next to the seller that you wish to remove from the allowlist and click confirm removal. This transaction occurs onchain and requires a confirmation in your wallet.

I’ve been removed from the Allowlist of a World, what next?

As a seller, when you have been removed from the allowlist of a World, you cannot add any new NFTs, Editions, or Drops to that World. Any existing Drops, Editions, and NFTs will continue to remain in the World.

You can remove the NFT from the World by unlisting the NFT from the World and you can also update the Buy Now and/or the Reserve Auction price for an individual NFT without removing it from the World.

Drops and Editions cannot be removed from a World and will need to be self-destructed to be removed from the World.

Remember that unlisting NFTs from a World is an onchain action. NFTs, Drops, and Editions that are not unlisted from a World will still have curator fees.

Can a curator control what’s listed in a world?

When sellers are added to a world, they can list any NFT they own in the world. Please coordinate tightly with sellers on what to list.

Can a curator remove NFTs listed by sellers?

No - NFTs within your world can only be listed or unlisted by the seller who owns the NFT.

Can I customize my Worlds homepage?

Yes - you can spotlight a single drop, edition, or listing on your Worlds Homepage by using your dashboard. Learn how to use your Worlds dashboard.

Can I customize the Drops, Editions, and Listings modules in my world?

As drops, editions, and listings are added to your world, they'll appear automatically in these dedicated sections on your world homepage - the content in these sections will appear in trending order and cannot be customized.

How do I list my NFT in a world?

You can list your NFT in a world by following the steps in the How to sell NFTs on Foundation article. You can choose to list NFTs for sale immediately or you can schedule them to go on sale at a future date and time. You can choose to list your NFTs for sale using Reserve Auctions, Buy Nows, and you can also accept Offers for those NFTs listed in that world.

Can I list in a world and set my own Reserve/Buy Now price outside the world at the same time?

No - NFTs that are listed in a world cannot be listed elsewhere at the same time. For more information on how to sell NFTs in a world, take a look at this help article.

The NFT has a Reserve Price and/or a Buy Now Price, why can’t I place a Bid?

The NFT may be a scheduled listing. This means that the Reserve Price and/or the Buy Now Price will be active at a specific date and time. All Bids can be made after this date but you can make an Offer at any time!

Can I list an NFT in a world if it was in another world before?

Yes, you can list your NFT for sale in a world even if it was previously listed in another world.

Can I launch an edition in a world?

Yes - after the creator has been invited as a seller to the world, they can create an edition collection and launch it within the world. The curator fee will apply to the mints of your Editions collection. 

Can I launch a drop in a world?

Yes - after the creator has been invited as a seller to the world, they can create a drop and launch it within the world. The curator fee will apply to the mints of your drop.

Can I remove an edition from a world?

An edition collection cannot be removed from a world - the collection will need to be self-destructed to no longer appear in the world. Learn more about self-destructing an Editions collection here.

Can I remove a drop from a world?

A drop collection cannot be removed from a world - the collection will need to be self-destructed to no longer appear in the world. Learn more about self-destructing a drop here.

Will Worlds have a tab on my Foundation profile?

Yes - once you create a world, a Worlds tab will be visible on your profile.

What is the dashboard?

Your Worlds Dashboard offers a comprehensive view and valuable analysis of your world’s metrics. You can use your dashboard to gain a deeper understanding of your world’s performance, customize your homepage, and take stock of your inventory—all in one place. Learn how to use your Worlds dashboard.

What is an exhibition?

Exhibitions give worldbuilders the ability to curate shows of Drops, Editions, and Listings within a World. With Exhibitions, sellers added to the exhibition allowlist can list directly into the exhibition.

Use your Worlds Dashboard to create an exhibition.

Where is an exhibition located in a world?

If a curator created an exhibition, it will be located in the Exhibitions tab of the world page.

Can I be notified when an exhibition starts?

Navigate to the exhibition and click + Add to Calendar to add a reminder to your calendar.

What happens when an NFT is sold in my world?

When an NFT is sold in a world, it will no longer appear on the Listings tab. The record of the sale will always be shown on the Sales tab.

Who’s responsible for Foundation’s Marketplace fee for NFTs sold in a world?

The seller who listed the NFT pays Foundation’s Marketplace fee from the proceeds of their sale. Learn more about Foundation’s Marketplace fee here.

How do I delete a world?

To delete a world, you’ll need to burn your World NFT to delete it.

  1. Go to the ownership page in your Worlds dashboard.
  2. Burn your World NFT.
  3. Confirm the transaction in your wallet.

All listings will no longer be associated with this world, and your world will be permanently deleted. Please make sure you’re burning the correct world in your dashboard.

How do I delete an exhibition?

Exhibitions cannot be deleted unless they are empty. Please note, this action cannot be reversed.

What chains can I create a World/Exhibition on?

Foundation currently supports creating Worlds and Exhibitions on Ethereum Mainnet. We have opened up creating worlds and exhibitions on Base Mainnet to select worldbuilders and have more updates planned soon. 

Why can’t I add my Base Drop to a World?

Foundation only supports importing Base Highlight Generative Series to a Base World or Exhibition. Access is currently limited, but we plan to open up more access soon.

If you have any other questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to us, and we’ll be happy to help!
