You may not mint NFTs that show excessively graphic sexual content nor pornography. This rule also applies to your profile image, your cover image, collection image and collection cover image (“web2 surfaces”). However, Foundation generally allows artistic depictions of Nudity and Adult Content. 

Foundation is a marketplace that enables artists and collectors to create, buy, and sell NFTs that they are passionate about. Sometimes these NFTs and the creators who make them make works that depict adult content and/or have depictions of nudity. As a platform that welcomes all creators, collectors, and curators, we recognize that some people may not want to be exposed to adult content. In instances where there is an artistic expression of nudity and/or adult content, we may limit the visibility of the NFT. For instances where Foundation deems an NFT to be pornographic and/or excessively graphic, we may remove the NFT from Foundation.

What happens if you are affected by this policy? 

The enforcement action we take depends on the type of content you shared and where you have shared it. 

Adult Content + Nudity

  • NFTs that are determined to have adult content and/or nudity will result in that NFT having reduced visibility. This includes but is not limited to: not being featured on the front page and not appearing in /trending.
  • Content that targets someone in a clearly abusive or unsolicited way will result in your profile being removed from Foundation until all the abusive content is burned/deleted.

Graphic Sexual Content / Pornography

  • NFTs and Web2 Surfaces that are determined to have Graphic Sexual Content and/or Pornography will be subject to removal from Foundation, until that content is burned/deleted. 

If you believe your NFT/profile was removed in error, you can submit an appeal by writing to us at trust@foundation.app. Please include a link to the removed NFT and/or profile. 

What happens to an NFT if it is removed? 

As all NFTs are minted onto the blockchain and the media is hosted on an IPFS server, the NFT will–depending on the circumstance–either remain in the owner’s wallet or in escrow in our market contract. While the owner and creator of the NFT will be able to view the NFT on Foundation, the larger public will be unable to view it.
