How to View Your NFTs on Metamask!

    We’re kicking it off with a small introduction on Metamask. First off, the software cryptocurrency and NFT wallet dubbed “Metamask” is used to communicate directly with the Ethereum network. Users can either utilize a browser extension or a mobile app to access their Ethereum wallet. It can then be used to connect with decentralized applications. ConsenSys Software Inc., a blockchain software firm that specializes in Ethereum-based infrastructure and tools, is the company behind Metamask. Now, we know that there’s a question roaming around and you’re wondering how and where you can view your NFTs using Metamask. We’ve got you covered with this full guide!

    Set Up your Metamask wallet

    Adding the Metamask extension on your web browser—whether it’s Chrome, Firefox, Brave, or Opera—should be your first step. This is easily done by going to Metamask’s website and clicking on the download button. The next step is to click “create a wallet”; yes, it’s that simple.  To move on to the next step, you must select whether you agree or disagree with sharing the feedback at this point.

    Create password on Metamask

    You must now create a password for your wallet, just like you would for any other online activity. Although you can quickly recover your password if it got lost, it is still a good idea to keep it in a secure location. You will then be required to generate a 12-word secret recovery phrase as an additional measure of security. This makes it possible for any user who has it to access the wallet. Keep in mind that without these 12 words, you cannot retrieve your wallet. Additionally, you can always make multiple copies of your phrase and even keep it in a durable metal wallet. Those 12 words are an insanely huge deal. Don’t share them with anyone.

    How to View  Your NFTs 

    First of all, you need to know that the mobile version of MetaMask is more updated than the web extension. NFTs cannot currently be seen natively in the UI, but you can add them as custom tokens in the extension. Under the NFT tab, NFTs are shown. Please keep in mind that some NFTs might not display properly or may not display at all on the mobile app. Enabling the app’s NFT autodetect option is the simplest approach to seeing your NFTs.

    If the above doesn’t work, we’ve included a manual step-by-step guide.

    1. Locate the address of the NFT.

    Let’s take OpenSea as an example. On the NFT’s page under Details, there is a blue hyperlinked item under “Contract Address” that can be clicked on. In the top-left corner of that page, there should be an icon labeled “Contract,” and to the right, a long chain of letters and numbers. If you click on this, it will direct you to the contract’s address on Etherscan. This is the location of the contract that goes back to your NFT. You can copy an address by selecting the “copy” icon to the right of the address.

    1. Import the NFT

    Click the “NFTs” tab in MetaMask Mobile, then scroll down and click the “Import NFTs” link.

    1. Locate the NFT’s ID.

    Since no two NFTs are identical, a collectible’s ID serves as a distinctive identification. Once more, this number is listed under “Details” on OpenSea. Write it down or paste it onto your clipboard.

    1. View your NFT!

    Your NFTs should show up under the NFTs tab in MetaMask Mobile when you paste the ID into the box labeled “ID” and hit the “ADD” button.

    Metamask is safe!

    The primary purpose, when MetaMask’s team of developers began building the wallet’s characteristics and operations in 2016, was to make it simpler,  dependable, and secure to access the Ethereum blockchain. So far, it has successfully achieved this goal by a substantial margin.

    Metamask is considered to be one of the safest and most used crypto wallets. However, the user’s device and responsibilities are largely responsible for its security. The seed phrase or password for the wallet must always be kept private. Other than that, MetaMask has a strong developer community that frequently updates and enhances its open-source technology. Make sure you know all the important tips on securing your metamask wallet.
