Can NFT Metadata be Changed
(Last Updated On: April 25, 2022)

Can NFT metadata be changed? This is a question that a lot of people have been asking lately. The short answer is yes – you can edit the metadata of an NFT. But how do you go about doing that? In this blog post, we will walk you through the process of assigning metadata to an NFT. Stay tuned for more information on this topic!

If you’re new to the world of NFTs, you might be wondering what metadata is and why it matters. Metadata is simply data that describes other data. In the context of NFTs, metadata can include things like the title of the work, the artist’s name, or a description of the piece. This information can be useful for anyone who is viewing or collecting your NFT.

Simple Steps to Update Your NFTs Metadata: 

1) Go to Etherscan.io and locate your NFT’s transaction

2) Select Contract from the drop-down menu

3) Click Read Contract

4) Locate Token URI

5) In the given box type NFT token id

6 ) This displays properties as string numbers letters you may copy & paste into browser

7 ) Change Metadata

In order to make the changes you want, it is essential that one knows how to code. If your NFTs are movies or gifs then they will need some extra steps taken in order for alterations can be made on them properly

A person who wants their own customized item from this list should think about what kind of information would best fit with whatever design he/she has beforehand since there isn’t room here telling everyone exactly which lines need editing but rather just giving an outline as possible locations where things could go wrong if left unchecked by anyone skilled enough at programming.

The appeal of NFTs is that they’re unique. Changing their metadata can risk obliterating this special quality, and if you use an item like a video game piece for collecting in-game currency or points then updating the information will become necessary as soon as new mechanics are released which might change how it works entirely – so doing these changes early on makes sense!

What In An NFT Cannot Be Changed?

When you create an NFT, the only thing that cannot be changed is its ID and address. If we wanted to change anything else about our token – like function or appearance- then burning it would allow for new features!


If you find yourself in need of changing an NFT (non-fungible token), don’t worry; it’s possible. However, keep note that the process isn’t simple and will almost certainly require some coding skills to make adjustments wants the way we want them!

It may seem like a straightforward task at first glance but there are several steps involved before your new creation can be released into circulation – not just one little change here or there either so prepare yourself well beforehand by doing research on what exactly needs changing where within each project/coin type specifically if this is something outside.
