NFT verification

NFT Authentication #

Always check NFT authenticity before purchasing!

It is especially worth checking NFTs that are clearly underpriced. If you see that all NFTs are selling for 2 SOL, and one is selling for 0.1 SOL, then do not rush to buy in the hope of getting the coveted profit, because you can buy a fake that is worth nothing.

Depending on the collection you’re considering, there are several ways to verify the authenticity of an NFT.

Verified collection #

Taurus Guard #

All NFTs of this series are united at the blockchain level into a collection with a unique address, for which the generally accepted term Verified Collection Address is used.

To check whether an NFT sold on the marketplace belongs to a given address or not, you need to open detailed information about the NFT being sold.

Detailed information about NFTs

Hover your cursor over the address shown in the screenshot and click on it, the address will be copied. Then return to this help page and press CTRL+F to bring up the search box and paste the copied address into it.

If the address matches exactly, it will be highlighted in the help with a special color, and the search window will show you 1/1 matches. This will indicate that the NFT is genuine.

The address matches

If there is a difference in the address by even one character, then the search window will show 0/0 matches, and nothing will be highlighted in the help. In this case, the NFT being sold is a fake.
