How to get the owner of an NFT


Before getting started, make sure you have the following ready:

  • Node v.14+ or Python
  • NPM/Yarn or Pip

Step 1: Setup Moralis​

First register your Moralis account and get your Moralis API Key.

Once you have your Moralis API Key, install the Moralis SDK in your project.

npm install moralis @moralisweb3/common-evm-utils

Step 2: Get All NFTs Owned By An Address​

In order to get all the owners of an NFT, Moralis provides you with a getNFTTokenIdOwners endpoint to do so.

Here you'll need three parameters: address, token_id and chain.

Once you've obtained the required parameters, you can copy the following code:

const Moralis = require("moralis").default;
const { EvmChain } = require("@moralisweb3/common-evm-utils");

const runApp = async () => {
await Moralis.start({
apiKey: "YOUR_API_KEY",
// ...and any other configuration

const address = "0xa186d739ca2b3022b966194004c6b01855d59571";

const chain = EvmChain.ETHEREUM;

const tokenId = "1";

const response = await Moralis.EvmApi.nft.getNFTTokenIdOwners({



Step 3: Run the script​

To run the script, enter the following command:

node index.js

In your terminal, you should see the following JSON response:

"total": 1,
"page": 1,
"page_size": 100,
"cursor": null,
"result": [
