How to fetch all NFTs owned by a particular Wallet Address using Ankrjs

In this tutorial, we’ll be fetching all the NFTs owned by a particular wallet or owner across multiple blockchains such as Ethereum, Polygon, and Fantom, to name a few, using Ankr's Advanced Multichain APIs↗.

Ankr Advanced APIs

Ankr's Advanced Multichain APIs are the collection of RPC methods created to simplify querying blockchain data. These APIs do all the heavy lifting for us so that we can query on-chain data in a matter of seconds.

Currently, it supports six EVM compatible chains: Ethereum, Fantom, Binance Smart Chain, Polygon, Avalanche, Arbitrum, with more EVM and non-EVM chains coming soon. To interact with Ankr's Advanced APIs, we are going to use a JavaScript library named Ankr.js↗.

Getting Started

Prerequisite: To successfully finish this guide, you'll need Node.js↗ and Yarn↗ installed on your machine.

Step 1: Setting Up Next.js Starter Application

First up, navigate into the directory of your choice where you want to initiate this project and run the following command in your terminal to set up a new Next.js starter page:

yarn create next-app --ts ankrjs-fetch-nfts

You'll be able to see a couple of files and folders being created for you. Let's dive into the newly created directory and start the development server on localhost:3000.

cd ankrjs-fetch-nfts
yarn dev

Visit localhost:3000 to view the starter application and it will resemble the screen attached below:

Step 2: Installing and Setting Up Ankr.js

In this section, we will install and set up Ankr.js for querying NFT data from the blockchain for a given wallet address.

We will start by installing the ankr.js package from npm:

yarn add @ankr.com/ankr.js

Now that we have installed the Ankr.js library, let's set up Ankr.js by creating a new file named apis.ts at the root of your project directory. We will initialize Ankr.js in this file.

File: ./apis.ts

import AnkrscanProvider from '@ankr.com/ankr.js';
import type { Blockchain } from '@ankr.com/ankr.js/dist/types';

const provider = new AnkrscanProvider('');

To interact with Ankr's Advanced APIs, we have created a provider instance that will serve as an interface to the APIs required to fetch data.


Step 3: Create getNFTs Function

In this step, you will create a getNfts function that accepts a walletAddress and returns a list of NFTs owned by that address.

Here, we are going to utilize the getNFTsByOwner function provided by Ankr.js for this.

File: ./apis.ts

import AnkrscanProvider from '@ankr.com/ankr.js';
import type { Blockchain } from '@ankr.com/ankr.js/dist/types';

const provider = new AnkrscanProvider('');

export const getNfts = async (address: string) => {
  const { assets } = await provider.getNFTsByOwner({
    walletAddress: address,
    blockchain: 'eth',
  });
  return {
    nfts: assets,
  };
};

And that's it.

Let's call this function on our page i.e. ./pages/index.tsx to see the fetched NFTs by the owner's wallet address and log the output. To do so, clear the code from the index.tsx file and replace it with the one given below:

File: ./pages/index.tsx

import type { NextPage } from 'next';
import { useEffect } from 'react';
import { getNfts } from '../apis';

const Home: NextPage = () => {
  useEffect(() => {
    (async () => {
      const { nfts } = await getNfts(
        '0xd8da6bf26964af9d7eed9e03e53415d37aa96045'
      );
      console.log({ nfts });
    })();
  }, []);

  return (
  <div className='p-10 flex flex-col items-center'>
      <h1 className='text-3xl font-bold'>NFTs</h1>
    </div>
  );
};

export default Home;

Now, let's see the NFT logs of an inputted wallet address in the developer console of a browser.

  • Head over to your localhost and use Option + ⌘ + J (on macOS), or Shift + CTRL + J (on Windows/Linux).

You should be able to see the list of NFTs owned by a particular address.

You can also extend the toggle to dive into the details of the NFTs held by the owner. Details include: blockchain, collectionName, contractAddress, contractType, imageUrl, name, symbol, tokenId and tokenUrl.

You can also extend what you just learned here into building a Multichain NFT Viewer.
