Manually Import your NFTs into MetaMask

Introduction

Your Uke Head NFT is a one-of-a-kind digital token that tells the world that you are the rightful owner of your Uke Head. Think of it as a certificate of authenticity. An NFT (short for "non-fungible token") is stored in a crypto wallet. If you've never had a crypto wallet before, we recommend using Coinbase Wallet. It's free, secure and easy to use. If you're already a MetaMask user, this article will show you how to manually import your Uke Head NFT into your MetaMask wallet.


DISCLAIMER: You don't need the NFT for your Uke Head to participate in the Uke Heads project or community; it is an entirely optional step. Please note that you and you alone are responsible for buying and managing your NFTs. The authors of this document are not responsible for how you manage your NFTs or other crypto assets.

Desktop vs. Mobile

Metamask is available on both desktop and mobile. At this time, only the mobile app is able to display your NFT images. For this reason, we suggest using the mobile app.

How to import your NFT manually if it doesn't appear in your MetaMask wallet

If your NFT doesn't show up automatically, you'll need to import it manually. First, make sure you're on the network "Polygon Mainnet." If you don't see Polygon listed as an option, you'll need to add it to your list of networks. Then, in your mobile MetaMask app, tap the "NFTs" tab, then "Import NFTs."

Two Magic Numbers: Contract Address and Token ID

To manually import your Uke Head NFT you'll need two magic numbers: the Uke Heads contract address and your Token ID. The contract address is the easy part: it's the same for all Uke Heads. Copy and paste the following into the "Address" field:

 0xed7a2b3bae85c330c0d76a2dd426326b22d11737
The Token ID is unique to your Uke Head. To find it, search Polygonscan for your wallet address. This will show all the activity for your wallet. Click "ERC-721 Token Txns" then click on the most recent "Txn Hash." On the next page, the Token ID is shown in the "Tokens Transferred" section. Copy this Token ID and paste into the "ID" field in MetaMask. Finally, tap "Import."
