Introduction

NFTs are available on the MEW wallet app! Users can conveniently store, collect, and manage their NFTs directly in the app (available on both Android and iOS). Discover new NFT collections on marketplaces like OpenSea and Rarible from your wallet, or follow someone else’s collection by importing a watch-only address! Whatever you decide to do, you can now interact with all your NFTs right from your mobile crypto wallet.

If you happen to have NFTs in a separate wallet, you can either send those NFTs over to your MEW wallet or add the separate wallet as a ‘watch-only’ account. Please keep in mind that there will be gas fees associated with sending your NFTs so make sure that you have a sufficient balance to cover it.

To understand Gas fees and how they work on the blockchain, see the ‘What is Gas’ article.

Adding the account as a ‘watch-only’ account (available for iOS) is a great alternative to avoid gas fees, however, the watch only account will be for viewing purposes only. You cannot send or manage the NFTs inside a watch-only account.

For the step by step guide on adding a watch-only account, refer to ‘Adding a Watch-only account using iOS’.
