Estimated time to read: 7 minutes

In this guide, Web3 app users can learn how to use the Arcana wallet UI and manage NFT assets.


  • To use the Arcana wallet, users must log in to a Web3 app that is integrated with the Arcana Auth SDK.

  • Depending on the type of blockchain signing experience set up by the app developer, the Arcana wallet may appear only when a blockchain transaction is triggered, or it may be visible at all times once the user logs in.

NFT Operations

The Arcana wallet allows users to view, transact and manage both types of NFT assets: image and video type.

The following NFT operations are supported:

  • List NFT assets associated with the wallet address
  • View NFT details
  • Send NFT
  • Receive NFT
  • Manage NFTs

    • Add an NFT
    • Edit NFT entry
    • Delete NFT entry

List NFTs

To view the NFT Assets associated with the wallet address and the selected blockchain network, click the 'NFT' tab at the bottom of the Arcana wallet.

Scroll down to browse through the NFTs. You can see a list of NFT thumbnails for each NFT that is associated with the wallet address on the current active blockchain network.

Auto-fetching of NFTs

* Arbitrum

Manage NFTs

The Arcana wallet automatically fetches the NFTs associated with the wallet address for the chains that are supported by Ankr. For non-supported chains, users can manually add the NFTs to the wallet through the Manage NFT feature.

To manually add the NFT, use the 'NFT' tab in the wallet and click Manage.

Add/Update NFT
Add/Update NFT

You can add, edit and update the NFT details. Note that the NFT collection name is automatically fetched and displayed once the correct collection contract address is entered. The NFT owner should have the same wallet address otherwise it cannot be manually added to the Arcana wallet.

The NFT owner can delete an NFT. Only the manually added NFTs can be deleted from the wallet UI. Deleting the NFT simply removes it from the wallet, it does not destroy it. A user can always add it back as long as the ownership resides with the user.

Add NFT Entry

Click New in the Manage NFTs wallet UI view to add an NFT. Provide requisite inputs and click Save.


The newly added NFT is displayed in the Manage NFTs screen.

Modify NFT Entry

To edit or delete a manually added NFT, use the Manage NFTs wallet UI, and click the NFT to see a pen icon next to the selected entry.
