Recently, I've been getting a lot of traffic to my article on how to register Foundation (Foundation.app), so I'd like to share with you all the ways to get an invitation link (invitation code) for Foundation!
In this article, I'm going to introduce everything from the basic methods to the advanced (and a bit risky) methods, so please try them at your own risk!
So let's get started!

1. Get it from a friend or acquaintance
The most basic and conventional way is to get an invitation from a direct acquaintance. Now that NFT has become popular, you may find that someone you know is unexpectedly already active on Foundation! Why don't you give a post some on Facebook to catch up with them?
2. Connect with Foundation artists on Twitter, etc.

For being participated:
1) follow me.
2 rt this tweet.
3) drop your artworks.#FoundationInvite #foundationinvites #inviteFND #NFTCommunity #Airdrop pic.twitter.com/36OxbOJxcQ
This is also a very basic method, but if you have not already done, you should try this right away.
Artists who have already sold their works to Foundation and received invitations often hold private contests on Twitter, announcing things like, "I'm inviting two of my favorite artists! Show me their work!"
In some cases, following and retweeting is also a condition for entering the contest, so make sure to check the content of the tweet to fully understand the entry rules.
By the way, you can easily find this kind of campaign by searching for tweets with hashtags such as #Foundationapp and #Foundationinvite.
3. Climb up to the top 50 in Community Upvote.
Community Upvote is not technically a way to get an invitation link, but it is a system where you can be given creator roles by being ranked in the top 50 for a certain period of time on a system like the Foundation's popularity poll. But I don't really recommend this to be honest.
It is extremely difficult to get into the top 50 out of thousands or tens of artists, and some of them collude with each other to gain organizational votes, so I would not say this is the best route to get a Foundation invite.
4. Send DMs directly to the artist
A rather internationally popular method is to send direct DMs on Twitter to artists who have just sold their first work on the Foundation.
This is because when artists have just sold your first work on the Foundation, there is a high possibility that they have unused invitations left. Also we can easily imagine that the artists, just after having their works sold, should be in an excited mood enough to feel inviting someone to Foundation.
It is a good idea to sort the auctions in order of remaining time from the Foundation's auction list page, and send messages to the Twitter accounts associated with the artists in order.
However, there is a high possibility that artists find your spammy messages annoying, and in some cases, your Twitter account or Foundation account may be suspended for community violation, so it is important to hold your horse and don't spam too much.
5. Use an listing proxy service
This method is the most recommended among the "fee-charging" methods. Some of the services that allow you to create a wallet on your behalf also support selling on the Foundation, so you can ask them to handle not only invitations but also selling and managing your sales.
In this case, you can create an account and wallet in your name, so through those services you can sell your work on the Foundation in the same way as if you were invited.
By the way, trading Foundation invitation is prohibited by the terms and conditions of Foundation, but there is no particular prohibition on proxy sales on behalf of the creators, so it seems that there is no problem using the current rules.
The only disadvantage is that the price is a bit higher than if you were to list the work yourself.
Please refer to this article for more information about proxy listing services.
6. Play Foundation invites capsule toy
Strangely enough, there is a capsule toy called the Foundation Invites Capsule Toy, which contains a Foundation invitation code!
NFTX, NFT's online curation platform, set it up on the web as a part of their campaign, and the system randomly displays a QR code every time the page is refreshed.
It seems that new invitation links are added periodically, so if you keep playing the toy, maybe someday you'll get one!
This is the end of the first half. So far, these are comparably safer and legit way to get the Foundation invitation link. From here on, I'm going to introduce you to more advanced ways of getting invite links, so see you in the next article!
