Access User’s NFTs via MetaMask in Laravel

Step 1: Install the Metamask Ethereum provider

  1. In your Laravel application, open a terminal and navigate to the root directory.
  2. Install the MetaMask Ethereum provider by running the following command:
npm install --save ethers

Step 2: Add a route and controller method

  1. Open your routes file (usually web.php) and add a new route:
Route::get('/connect-wallet', 'WalletController@connect')->name('connect-wallet');
  1. Create a new controller or use an existing one (e.g., WalletController) and add the connect method:

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Auth;
use App\Models\User;
use App\Services\MetaMaskService;

class WalletController extends Controller
    public function connect(Request $request)
        // Get the authenticated user
        $user = Auth::user();

        // Generate a unique token for this connection request
        $token = bin2hex(random_bytes(16));

        // Save the token in the user's session
        $request->session()->put('connect_token', $token);

        // Generate the MetaMask connection URL
        $connectionUrl = MetaMaskService::generateConnectionUrl($token);

        return view('connect-wallet', ['connectionUrl' => $connectionUrl]);

Step 3: Create the MetaMask service

  1. Create a new service file (e.g., MetaMaskService.php) in the app/Services directory.
  2. Add the following code to the MetaMaskService class:

namespace App\Services;

class MetaMaskService
    public static function generateConnectionUrl($token)
        // Replace this with your actual frontend URL where MetaMask will redirect after connecting
        $redirectUrl = '';

        // Generate the MetaMask connection URL
        $connectionUrl = "{$token}&redirect={$redirectUrl}";

        return $connectionUrl;

Step 4: Create the “Connect Wallet” view

  1. Create a new view file (e.g., connect-wallet.blade.php) and add the following code:
<!-- Include the MetaMask JavaScript library -->
<script src=""></script>

    async function connectWallet() {
        // Detect MetaMask provider
        const provider = await detectEthereumProvider();

        if (provider) {
            // Request user authorization
            const accounts = await provider.request({ method: 'eth_requestAccounts' });

            if (accounts.length > 0) {
                const walletAddress = accounts[0];
                // Redirect to the page where you retrieve the user's NFTs
                window.location.href = '{{ route('get-user-nfts') }}?walletAddress=' + walletAddress;
            } else {
                alert('No wallet address found.');
        } else {
            alert('MetaMask extension not detected. Please install MetaMask.');

<!-- Add a button to connect the wallet -->
<button onclick="connectWallet()">Connect Wallet</button>

Step 5: Add a route and controller method to retrieve NFTs

  1. Open your routes file (usually web.php) and add a new route:
Route::get('/user-nfts', 'NFTController@index')->name('get-user-nfts');
  1. Create a new controller or use an existing one (e.g., NFTController) and add the index method:
use GuzzleHttp\Client;

class NFTController extends Controller
    public function index()
        // Get the authenticated user
        $user = Auth::user();

        // Make a request to the OpenSea API to fetch the user's NFTs
        $nfts = $this->fetchUserNFTs($user->wallet_address);

        return view('user-nfts', ['nfts' => $nfts]);

    private function fetchUserNFTs($walletAddress)
        // Create a Guzzle HTTP client instance
        $client = new Client();

        // Set the OpenSea API endpoint and wallet address
        $endpoint = "";
        $query = [
            'owner' => $walletAddress,
            'order_direction' => 'desc',
            'offset' => 0,
            'limit' => 10, // Adjust the limit as per your requirements

        // Send a GET request to the OpenSea API
        $response = $client->get($endpoint, ['query' => $query]);

        // Decode the response JSON
        $data = json_decode($response->getBody(), true);

        // Extract the relevant NFT data from the response
        $nfts = [];

        foreach ($data['assets'] as $asset) {
            $nft = [
                'name' => $asset['name'],
                'image' => $asset['image_preview_url'],
                // Include any other relevant NFT information you want to retrieve

            $nfts[] = $nft;

        return $nfts;
  1. Create a new view file (e.g., user-nfts.blade.php) and display the user’s NFTs as desired.
<!-- user-nfts.blade.php -->


    <div class="container">
        <h1>User NFTs</h1>

        <div class="row">
            @foreach ($nfts as $nft)
                <div class="col-md-4">
                    <div class="card mb-4">
                        <img src="{{ $nft['image'] }}" class="card-img-top" alt="{{ $nft['name'] }}">
                        <div class="card-body">
                            <h5 class="card-title">{{ $nft['name'] }}</h5>
                            <!-- Display additional NFT information as needed -->

That’s it! With these steps, you have a Laravel application with a “Connect Wallet” button that connects the user to MetaMask, retrieves the user’s wallet address, and redirects to a page where their NFTs can be fetched using the wallet address.
