When an artist drops a limited-edition series on Foundation, each piece is represented by a digital token. As more collectors buy each piece, the corresponding token rises in value.
As a piece’s value fluctuates, buyers can cash in by selling tokens back to the market. Artists earn a cut each time their tokens are bought and sold, allowing them to capitalize on the hype they create.
When a creator is ready to ship their work, buyers can redeem whole tokens for the physical good. If you want to skip crypto, you can always use your card to buy the physical good.
