OpenSea NFT API Python 3 wrapper

This an API wrapper library for the OpenSea API written in Python 3.

The library provides a simplified interface to fetch a diverse set of NFT data points from OpenSea.

Supported endpoints

The wrapper covers the following OpenSea API endpoints:


You need to have an API key to use the OpenSea API, and thus you need one to use this wrapper too. You can request a key here.

NOTE: The API key can take over 4-7 days to be delivered. It also requires you to show the project you are working on.


Install with pip:

virtualenv env && source env/bin/activate
pip install opensea-api


pip install opensea-api -U

Usage examples

# import the OpenseaAPI object from the opensea module
from opensea import OpenseaAPI

# create an object to interact with the Opensea API (need an api key)
api = OpenseaAPI(apikey="YOUR APIKEY")

# fetch a single asset
contract_address = "0x495f947276749Ce646f68AC8c248420045cb7b5e"
token_id = "66406747123743156841746366950152533278033835913591691491127082341586364792833"
result = api.asset(asset_contract_address=contract_address, token_id=token_id)

# fetch multiple assets
result = api.assets(owner="0xce90a7949bb78892f159f428d0dc23a8e3584d75", limit=3)

# fetch a single contract
result = api.contract(asset_contract_address="0x495f947276749Ce646f68AC8c248420045cb7b5e")

# fetch a single collection
result = api.collection(collection_slug="cryptopunks")

# fetch multiple collections
result = api.collections(asset_owner="0xce90a7949bb78892f159f428d0dc23a8e3584d75", limit=3)

# fetch collection stats
result = api.collection_stats(collection_slug="cryptopunks")

# fetch multiple events
from opensea import utils as opensea_utils

period_end = opensea_utils.datetime_utc(2021, 11, 6, 14, 30)
result =

# fetch multiple bundles
result = api.bundles(limit=2)

# paginate the events endpoint (cursors are handled internally)
from datetime import datetime, timezone

start_at = datetime(2021, 10, 5, 3, 25, tzinfo=timezone.utc)
finish_at = datetime(2021, 10, 5, 3, 20, tzinfo=timezone.utc)

event_generator = api.events_backfill(start=start_at,
for event in event_generator:
    if event is not None:
        print(event) # or do other things with the event data
