How Equippable NFTs work

NFTs, or Non-Fungible Tokens, are unique digital assets that represent ownership of a digital or physical item, such as artwork, virtual real estate, or even a tweet. Each NFT has a distinct value and cannot be exchanged on a one-to-one basis like regular currency (e.g., dollars or bitcoins).
Think of Equippable NFTs as supercharged NFTs, made possible by the revolutionary ERC-6220 standard, developed by RMRK, the team that built Singular. This unique standard allows you to create NFTs that can have other NFTs "attached" or "equipped" to them.
Picture a LEGO set. You can connect different pieces to create something entirely new. Equippable NFTs work in a similar fashion. They can be attached to other NFTs, modifying the original, much like giving your LEGO car a shiny new set of wheels.
