NFT API Overview

The NFT API indexes metadata and activity for NFT tokens and collections. It supports tokens that adhere to the ERC721 and ERC1155 token standards, as well as non-standard tokens like CryptoPunks.

With the NFT API you can:

  • Retrieve on-chain updates in < 1.5 minutes
  • Query token metadata, transaction history, ownership, and all tokens within a collection
  • Query collection metadata, trending collections, and all collections.

Developers can leverage these features to build crypto applications such as NFT marketplaces, galleries, portfolios, wallets, and more.
