Using Your API Key
Your API key is required for every request made to access content for your App. It should be passed as the "X-Niftory-API-Key" header.
This key identifies your application. It can be used on its own for any operation you'd want anyone visiting your application to be able to perform without logging in, like querying NFTs.
The API Key alone cannot be used to query any user or sensitive app data or perform any mutations. For that, see Types of Authentication.

Follow some API Key best practices to use them securely. It's safe to use it in your frontend, but don't embed the API Key directly in code. Consider adding them to your .env file in a NextJS app or wherever your front and back-end configuration files are held.
Next let's configure your app to start using the API Key and client credentials.
