The ZORA API makes it easy to retrieve NFT metadata, monitor on-chain events, and analyze on-chain sales activity.


You can test out the API without needing a key. It’s free to use right now

API Endpoint:

SDK: A development kit to use the API without needing to know GraphQL

NFT Hooks: A tool that makes NFT data retrieval even easier than the ZDK

Key Features#

  • Sales info from on-chain marketplaces (ZORA, OpenSea, LooksRare etc.)
  • Data on every Ethereum NFT contract (Transfers, Mints, etc.)
  • Media is encoded to provide assets at different sizes
  • Automatically syncs newly deployed NFT contracts
  • Fill orders made on OpenSea (Seaport)
  • Text-based search for discoverability
  • And much more

Getting Started#

If you are unfamiliar with GraphQL, we recommend that you check out this resource. In addition, here are a few considerations before using the API.

  • The ZDK and NFT Hooks allow anyone to build top on of the API without needing to know GraphQL.
  • Currently supports any ERC-721 NFTs
  • Maximum page size limit is 500 for regular queries and 50 for text-based searches
  • Check out the guides section to begin building


Anyone can use the API without an API key as long as the application is making less than 120 requests per minute.

You can get an API key here if your needs require greater than 120 requests per minute. To access the API with a key, add a header in your requests with the key X-API-KEY .

headers={"X-API-KEY": <your_api_key>}
