Misleading and Deceptive Identities Policy


You may not impersonate individuals, groups, artists, collectors, or organizations to mislead, confuse or deceive others. 

At Foundation, we understand that privacy is a premium that comes with the experience with web3 and that privacy of identity can lend itself to authenticity. That means, creators, collectors, and curators should be able to trust that the creator of an NFT or Collection genuinely represents that artist. We don’t require you to share your real name or image on your profile, but your account should not engage in impersonation or deceive others for potential gain. 

What happens if you are affected by this policy? 


  • Users who are found to be impersonating an artist, collector, or organization in a confusing or deceptive manner will be removed from Foundation.

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 your Foundation Profile that you are appealing.


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.
