Get the Owner of an NFT

Returns the owner of a given NFT.

await API.query.getNftOwner(NFT_ID);

If you're checking for the owner of a newly minted NFT, allow time for consensus to be achieved on the minted NFT.

You can get the AVN_GATEWAY_URL here.

const AVN_API = require("avn-api");
const AVN_GATEWAY_URL = "<node_url>";
const options = {
suri: "<account_suri>",
const API = new AVN_API(AVN_GATEWAY_URL, options);

//replace with the ID of the NFT you're checking.
const NFT_ID = "0x13b9501a...2faed4d48488";

async function main() {
await API.init();

let result = await API.query.getNftOwner(NFT_ID);

(async () => {
await main();
