How to Add NFT to MetaMask? 

MetaMask is one of the most popular wallets that lets you add custom tokens into it, add ETH, NGTs, Matic, and many other digital wallets to provide the security required for every transaction you plan to make.

  • NFTs are the abbreviation for Non-Fungible Tokens and are cryptographic assets with distinctive identification codes differentiating them from each other.

In contrast to this, there are fungible tokens often used for commercial transactions and are similar. Now NFTs are all over the cryptocurrency world, and you should not wait to link them to your MetaMask Wallet. Here is what you need to do to add NFT to MetaMask:

  3. It displays several options such as Browser, Wallet, and Transaction History.
  4. From this dialogue box, click on the option of Wallet.
  5. From here, you need to select the NFTs. This is where your NFTs are shown typically.

Add NFT to the MetaMask From Browser Extension

Now, if you are planning to carry out the process via the browser extension, you must know beforehand that it is impossible to view the NFTs in the browser because there is no UI, so you cannot see your NFTs in the extension.

Still, if you wish to add the NFTs to the MetaMask wallet from the Browser Extension, here is what you need to do:

  1. On your browser, please click on the extension icon to display the extension of MetaMask.
  2. It opens a dialogue box before you, and you will not see any option for the NFTs as you did previously on the mobile application.
  3. It instead displays two main options, i.e., Assets and Activity.
  4. Go to the Assets tab.
  5. Once done, it displays an option Refresh list or import tokens. Click on the latter one, I.e., Import tokens.
  6. Then, choose Custom Token from here.
  7. On the OpenSea, you need to go to the Details section of the NFT. Click on the hyperlink right beside the Contract Access.
  8. On clicking, it will direct you to the Etherscan.
  9. From here, copy the contract address from the icon right next to your address. It gives the option of Copy Address to the clipboard as soon as you move the cursor on it.
  10. You must paste it in the Token Contract Address in the extension under the Custom Token box.
  11. Now when you add the Token Contract Address in the field, MetaMask recognizes it and automatically fills the Token Symbol on its own.
  12. Lastly, there is an option of Token Decimal right below the Token Symbol. You need to enter 0 and click on Add Custom Token to proceed.
  13. In your Wallet, you will see the NFT token.
  14. Recheck it and then click on the Import Token circular pop up on the bottom of the screen.
  15. And that is it!
