How to Find Out the Type of NFTs in a Collection

Follow this tutorial to learn how to find out the type of NFTs in a collection.

This tutorial explains the steps involved in getting any Ethereum Mainnet collection by contract address and finding the type of NFTs.

Step 2. Use the collection endpoint with the following details:

  • protocol: ethereum

  • network: mainnet

Step 3. Add the following parameter:

  • contract address

    • parameter: contract_address
    • value: e.g. 0xBC4CA0EdA7647A8aB7C2061c2E118A18a936f13D

Step 3. Execute the query.

For example, in cURL, you should run the following code:

curl -X GET '' -H 'Authorization: Bearer YOUR_API_KEY'



To authorize your request, you need to get an API key and use it as a bearer token or a query parameter. Learn more: Authentication Guide
