Retrieve the owner of the NFT

In the rapidly evolving world of non-fungible tokens (NFTs), it is essential for creators, collectors, and traders to have the ability to verify the ownership of individual NFTs. This guide introduces you to the operation of retrieving the owner of a specific NFT, providing you with the necessary information to confirm the current holder of the unique digital asset. By leveraging this functionality, you can ensure the authenticity and provenance of the NFT, make informed decisions about buying, selling, or holding it, and navigate the dynamic NFT market with confidence. Ultimately, this operation enables you to manage your digital assets more effectively and maintain the integrity of your NFT transactions.

How to get the owner of the NFT on the Ethereum network

// yarn add @tatumio/tatum
import {TatumSDK, Network, Ethereum, ResponseDto, NftTransaction} from '@tatumio/tatum'

const tatum = await TatumSDK.init<Ethereum>({network: Network.ETHEREUM})

const owner: ResponseDto<string[]> = await tatum.nft.getNftOwner({
  tokenAddress: '0xbc4ca0eda7647a8ab7c2061c2e118a18a936f13d', // replace with your collection
  tokenId: '1'

// Install with: npm install @tatumio/tatum
const { TatumSDK, Network } = require("@tatumio/tatum");

(async () => {
  try {
    const tatum = await TatumSDK.init({ network: Network.ETHEREUM });
    const txs = await tatum.nft.getNftOwner({
      tokenAddress: "0xbc4ca0eda7647a8ab7c2061c2e118a18a936f13d", // replace with your collection
