What I´m trying to do is to condition some option/modal to be shown in the screen depending on the logged user/account being the owner or not so to have something similar to:

accountPair.address === NFT.owner

I know it has to be related with the addresses inside keyring. But how do I identify the current account being logged in the UI? I´m working with the front end template of polkadot js.

Use the hook useSubstrateState (see the code here). An example is:

const { api, currentAccount } = useSubstrateState()
const yourAddress = currentAccount.address;
