Attention creators, the wait is over: collections have arrived for all! On Foundation, you can now deploy your own smart contract, mint NFTs to it, and share your debut collection.
We’re releasing features with the future in mind. All collections on Foundation are backed by their own smart contract. Why? Smart contracts are clear provenance for artists and they give you full ownership over your work—the keys will always be in your control.
In web3, smart contracts as collections translate to: canonical bodies of work (think Cosmos), your own version of a digital-first exhibition, fashion show, or maybe even an album… more on that note soon. To get started, visit our Help Center for a guide to creating your first collection and more.
Ready to deploy? We’re ready for you, too.
Foundation is where the creative economy of the future is coming into focus, and where new approaches to ownership and monetization are transforming how creative work is valued. Experiment, play, and build with us at foundation.app.
Prepare all of the works for minting, including all of the necessary artwork titles and descriptions.
Important: Make sure that there are no spelling errors and your file meets our specs before minting. Once you mint an NFT, no changes can be made. If you want to make any changes, you will need to burn and re-mint your NFT.
Mint your works in the reverse order that you want them to appear on your profile. You’re unable to rearrange them once minted.

PHOTOGRAPHER FAMOUS FOR PUBLISHING WORLD’SFIRST DIGITALPHOTO BREAKS INTO NFT REALM with REVOLUTIONARY and EXCLUSIVENEWAUCTIONS.
“BEAUTY AND THE BEAST”
Marco Glaviano, one of the world’s most acclaimed fashion photographers, set to release exclusive and never-before-seen NFT artworks from extensive archive for sale via new Digital Art Gallery PINHOLE.
Milan, Italy – November 27, 2021 — Italian fashion photographer and legend, Marco Glaviano – celebrated worldwide for his boundary-breaking work in publishing the world’s first digital photo in 1982, — is offering collectors the chance to own one-of-a-kind NFTs of his photographs. The NFTs will be auctioned exclusively by Pinhole via Rarible, a top-ranked NFT marketplace trusted by celebrities and budding creators alike. Art lovers and collectors around the world can bid on Marco Glaviano’s NFTs this November 29th, 2021 (Cyber Monday).
Alongside his classic photographs of supermodels Cindy Crawford, Paulina Porizkova, and Iman, the auction includes a never-before-published photograph of Alexis Ren, — social media phenomenon and celebrity who was included in Maxim’s Hot 100 list of Sexiest Women in the World in 2019, boasting 15 million followers on Instagram — and a portrait of Donald Trump, taken in 2004 at his apartment in Trump Tower, originally shot for Vanity Fair.
With countless photographs hanging in iconic art museums, as well as stunning private collections across the world, and a career that spans over 500+ magazine covers–for the likes of American Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, and Vanity Fair–Glaviano is one of the world’s most renowned fashion photographers. Widely credited with “sophisticating the pinup” and creating the “super model” look of the 80’s and 90’s, Marco’s body of work played a fundamental role in elevating fashion photography from pictures in magazines to a fine art. As a pioneer in bending the boundaries of technology, Marco is now offering art collectors the chance to own his exclusive collection of NFTs. Each NFT purchase on Rarible will come with a unique unlockable element ranging from behind-the-scenes photos to Social Media shoutouts from Alexis and Marco. Cindy’s Kiss, for example, will include the once in a lifetime opportunity to shoot with Marco Glaviano in one of his studios, and a personalized video message from Cindy Crawford.
The founder of Pinhole, said of the release: “Marco’s work has always been ahead of his time, and always fully focused on pushing digital to the forefront. His photos have been coveted by top art collectors for years and the NFTs in this collection are a great fusion of a truly iconic age and his inspirations of today. It’s truly remarkable what he’s achieved and to be able to finally offer these pieces to art lovers and collectors via our new digital art gallery in collaboration with Rarible is a dream come true.”
PINHOLE (www.pinhole.art) is a newly launched digital art gallery designed to create, curate and auction art NFTs for the world’s most iconic, and most up-and-coming–photographers. This is the first collaboration from the digital art gallery, with more planned releases in the near future.
Marco Glaviano said: “I’m happy that we finally have a new platform to showcase digital photography, as I’ve been working on digital photography for nearly 40 years and my work has always been about pushing the boundaries of what digital photography can do”.
Cindy Crawford said: “Marco and I have been collaborating since the beginning of my career. We’ve shot countless editorials, advertising campaigns and my swimsuit calendars. I’ve always appreciated his unique ability to see and capture his subject—no matter what is in front of his lens. He’s always viewed the world multidimensionally and it’s that vision that sets him apart. It makes perfect sense to me that he would enter the world of NFT’s just as he embraced digital photography in the 80’s.”
Alexis Ren, a new friend of Glaviano’s, is particularly excited about this new venture and stated: “This photo is one of my favorites from my entire career, it’s a piece of art and Instagram banned it, therefore it was our first choice to turn into an NFT which has fewer boundaries and more potential of living forever. It was really special to meet Marco Glaviano who has crafted an aesthetic that I’ve looked up to for so long. Being able to connect with Marco through family was really special. Getting to shoot with him was even more special because I grew up really falling in love with the way the women were in his photos and how their energy was just powerful and commanding. It inspired me to be the woman I am today. I love this crossover where we are adding the legacy of this photographer into this new NFT phase. And I’m very honored to be a part of it and keep his memory alive because he has done so much for the fashion industry and for my life personally.”

November 29, 2021, New York, NY – Today, Budweiser announces its first ever Non-Fungible Token (NFT) launch with its Heritage Collection. This is Budweiser’s first-ever foray into the world of unique digital assets on the blockchain. Budweiser’s NFT program is the latest example of how Anheuser-Busch InBev is leveraging technology to engage adult consumers on more occasions and represents the company’s first owned NFT marketplace.
Budweiser partnered with VaynerNFT on the concept, creation, and launch of The Heritage Can NFT collection. VaynerNFT’s main objective with this collaboration is to create strategic and meaningful experiences for Bud NFT holders as Budweiser makes its first-ever foray into the Metaverse.
The Heritage NFT Collection is composed of 1,936 unique digital cans representing 1936, the year the first Budweiser can was created. The collection will be available to consumers of legal drinking age via two different token types at launch – the Core Heritage Cans and the Gold Heritage Cans.
“The Budweiser Heritage Collection is designed to celebrate the brand’s iconic history while also moving Budweiser into the metaverse,” said Spencer Gordon, Vice President of Digital + draftLine at Anheuser-Busch. “The launch of this NFT Collection is yet another example of our innovative and consumer-first approach to further strengthen our iconic brands.”
Each Heritage Collection token is one-of-a-kind digital asset generated using designs from throughout Budweiser’s renowned history. Among the 1,936 tokens to be released, 1,900 are Core Heritage tokens priced at $499 USD each and 36 are Gold Heritage tokens, priced at $999 USD each.
“Budweiser is excited to invite adult consumers in the U.S. and from around the world into this new global frontier to unlock and own a valuable piece of our remarkable heritage,” said Richard Oppy, Vice President of Global Brands, AB InBev. “NFTs give us a unique, new avenue to celebrate our history while also leading our industry and looking forward into the future of art and culture simultaneously.”
Adult consumers who are 21+ (or legal drinking age) can each purchase a limited number of NFTs directly through the website Budweiser.com/nft with the cryptocurrency ETH, Bitcoin or with a credit card.
Budweiser, an American-style lager, was introduced in 1876 when company founder Adolphus Busch set out to create the United States’ first truly national beer brand – brewed to be universally popular and transcend regional tastes. Each batch of Budweiser stays true to the same family recipe used by five generations of Busch family brewmasters. Budweiser is a medium-bodied, flavorful, crisp and pure beer with blended layers of premium American and European hop aromas, brewed for the perfect balance of flavor and refreshment. Budweiser is made using time-honored methods including “kraeusening” for natural carbonation and Beechwood aging, which results in unparalleled balance and character.

Kryptomonis pleased to announce its token $KMON on Gate.io, following the sale of its first Legendary Kryptomon for an eye watering $49,700 in the first ever Kryptomon auction, the Kryptomon team seem to have no intention of resting on their laurels.
In an overwhelming outpouring of support from Binance users worldwide, not only did all 2000 Kryptomon Mystery Boxes sell out on the BinanceNFT marketplace in a reported 0.27 seconds, those same mystery boxes have generated a trading volume of almost $1M on the secondary resell market just days after listing.
With that string of achievements, it wouldn’t be surprising if the Kryptomon team took a short break to pat themselves on the back for a job well done. That’s not the case however as the Kryptomon team don’t seem to show any signs of slowing down. In addition to the recent release of their new Whitepaper and website, they’ve recently announced their partnership with a Tier 1 Centralized Exchange (CEX) – Gate.IO.
Umberto Canessa Cerchi, Founder and CEO of Kryptomon, commented on the new listing: “We are proud to announce our first listing of our KMON token on a centralized exchange, and as we promised to our community, we believe that our existing and future investors will enjoy the various trading benefits and features that our top-tier partners Gate.io offer on their amazing and advanced exchange, and that our community’s trading and investing experience will improve substantially by using Gate.io’s mobile trading apps and advanced desktop browser trading platform.”
Making KMON Accessible To All
On the 18th of November 2021, users will be able to trade the KMON token directly on the Gate.IO platform. As one of the top 10 centralized exchanges in the world that handles an average trading volume of $2 billion every day, Gate.IO is an excellent partner for Kryptomon’s first listing of its KMON token on a CEX. Not only will this introduce Kryptomon and the KMON token to Gate.IO’s 8 million strong user base, but will also pave the way for future players to easily purchase KMON tokens directly on Gate.IO without the hassle and risk associated with DeFi trading.
In addition, due to its long time partnership with fiat-to-crypto gateway company Simplex, the Kryptomon team is looking to bring forward their plans of integrating Simplex into the game before the end of 2021. This will once again make it much easier for millions of potential gamers and investors everywhere to get started as trainers will soon be able to make all Kryptomon related purchases (KMON, in-game powerups etc) directly in the game using their debit/credit cards, similar to popular games like Clash of Clans and PUBG today!
A Pioneer in the Crypto Gaming space
A common hurdle for crypto games today is its inaccessibility. A full 98% of gamers worldwide are not crypto-savvy enough to navigate the intricacies of DeFi, thus limiting their exposure to many up-and-coming crypto games. As promised in this Medium article article, the Kryptomon team have removed this barrier of entry via its listing with Gate.IO and Simplex integration, allowing for anyone with a debit or credit card to easily get started. With the Version 1 launch of their game expected at the end of Nov 2021, Kryptomon is definitely a gem in the rough to be keeping your eye on!
We’re excited to announce that Palm Network, a scalable and sustainable NFT ecosystem built on Ethereum, is actively collaborating with Chainlink Labs to improve and simplify how enterprises issue NFTs across blockchains. As a part of this collaboration, Chainlink Labs will be supporting Palm NFT Studio—a collective providing creative and technical services for artists and rights holders looking to establish next-generation work on the Palm Network—to further the development and growth of Palm Network, with the eventual goal of creating a multi-chain NFT abstraction layer that enterprises can use to track, monitor, and manage NFTs.
Demand for NFT services in the enterprise space is growing rapidly, with companies across numerous industries introducing programs to incorporate the technology into both their loyalty programs and core digital product offerings. A seamless NFT abstraction layer will empower enterprises to securely participate in this burgeoning digital economy and unlock new value streams.
Chainlink Labs is the development team helping build the most widely adopted open-source and decentralized oracle network, Chainlink. The Chainlink Labs collaboration serves as a validation of the long-term viability of NFTs and our work around simplifying the NFT creation process, and will accelerate adoption for enterprises via the Palm network. As part of the collaboration, we are also integrating several Chainlink oracle services. These services include Chainlink Price Feeds for exchange rates, Chainlink VRF for a verifiable random number generator (RNG), and CCIP for cross-chain interoperability. As the industry-leading decentralized oracle network, Chainlink oracles will play a key role providing enterprises with a simple, secure, and customizable framework for minting their NFTs across any blockchain network supported by the Cross-Chain Interoperability Protocol (CCIP), all through a single interface.
Enhancing Palm Network with Chainlink Oracles
In addition to collaborating with some of the largest names in fine art, cryptoart, and entertainment, Palm NFT Studio works with leading enterprises to onboard into the NFT ecosystem as a means of further connecting with their consumer base. However, achieving this goal requires a secure and reliable oracle solution in order to enhance the customization of NFT issuance processes, integrate within traditional infrastructure, and interoperate across different blockchains. Chainlink was the natural choice as the industry-standard in oracle technology, serving as an oracle service provider and secure blockchain middleware for the Palm ecosystem.
Chainlink Price Feeds will provide NFT creators with a high-quality, tamper-proof source of market data that can be used as exchange rates for crypto-to-crypto or crypto-to-fiat transactions during drops and marketplace activity, as well as to create dynamic NFTs that change in various ways like appearance based on current market conditions. Additionally, Chainlink Verifiable Random Function (VRF) will supply creators with a verifiably tamper-proof source of randomness that can be used to fairly distribute NFTs to participants, as well as select NFT traits amongst a collection with varying rarity.
Another key element of the collaboration is to create an abstraction layer so enterprises can monitor, track, and manage NFTs on a variety of leading blockchains using a single middleware. Chainlink is already integrated across a wide range of top blockchains and will support an advanced, enterprise-grade interoperability solution called the Cross-Chain Interoperability Protocol (CCIP). CCIP will make it easier than ever for enterprises to manage their NFTs across any supported blockchain network. As a result, large enterprises can enter the NFT ecosystem without needing to spend their time and resources on integrating with each blockchain separately.
With the NFT ecosystem increasingly shifting towards becoming a multi-chain ecosystem, an abstraction layer for enterprises will significantly reduce the friction of managing NFTs on the blockchains where users reside. Through Chainlink’s secure and time-tested middleware, we see this vision becoming a reality, opening the door for enterprises everywhere to enter the ever-expanding NFT ecosystem.
“We’re thrilled to collaborate with the Chainlink Labs team to help grow the Palm ecosystem and build the resources required to create the most fully-featured platform for leading enterprises to join the NFT ecosystem,” stated Palm Co-Founder and Palm NFT Studio CEO Dan Heyman. “The Chainlink Network’s vast array of decentralized services will also play a key role in the creation of more advanced dynamic NFTs, as well as enabling enterprises to easily manage NFTs across any blockchain network through CCIP.”
“Palm NFT Studios is crafting a strong ecosystem of artists and enterprises through their scalable Ethereum-based NFT platform. We’re thrilled to provide support in order to help them achieve their goals in bringing NFTs to the masses,” stated David Post, Managing Director of Corporate Development and Strategy at Chainlink Labs. “The creation of an abstraction layer for enterprises to mint NFT assets across blockchain networks is also a unique and powerful use case of Chainlink oracles, vastly reducing the time it takes to issue and manage NFTs across any supported blockchain.”
Chainlink is the industry standard for building, accessing, and selling oracle services needed to power hybrid smart contracts on any blockchain. Chainlink oracle networks provide smart contracts with a way to reliably connect to any external API and leverage secure off-chain computations for enabling feature-rich applications. Chainlink currently secures tens of billions of dollars across DeFi, insurance, gaming, and other major industries, and offers global enterprises and leading data providers a universal gateway to all blockchains.

What Makes this project unique? This is the first AI-powered artists’ collaboration. Mubert’s collection has 50 fixed-price NFTs of art pieces and soundtracks . Mubert strived to create an outstanding contest and collaborate with the musicians who were eager to experiment with Mubert Render. For the prizes, the company chose non-fungible tokens in order to provide a possibility to artists to promote their works, earn revenue and utilize these tools.
What is the price? From 0.1 ETH
Why is that price fair? This price is more than fair because we didn’t want to devaluate artists’ contributions. We decided that or it would be sold for this average price or it would be not sold at all. More than that we even think that artists should get even more.
What is the Mint Size?
We have 5 creatives with up to 10 copies.
Are there any mechanics we should know about? The main thing is that all tracks were generated with the help of Mubert but not only created by artists.
