Connecting Hats w/ Authorities & Responsibilities
Hats are ERC-1155 tokens, so they can be plugged into token gates to grant the wearers of that hat specific authorities, as long as 1) the wearer’s address is still eligible to wear the hat, and 2) the hat is still active.
You can think of it this way: token gates have two parts, the token and the gate. Hats provides the token, which gets plugged into the necessary gates, to give the hat wearer access to the proper authorities.
