If we haven't crossed paths in the weird wilds before, I'm Keridwen, the WITCH of WIT and resident wordsmith at Crypto Coven. 🖋️✨

As many of you know, our WITCH NFTs come with not only gorgeously rendered art, but also a name, an archetype, astrological signs, stats within our magic system, and an ARTICULATION.

Here's me:

Season’s greetings, witches! As the days shorten and winter descends, we celebrate the splendor of the sun’s rebirth and the people, creatures, and dark entities we hold dearest to our hearts. We tip our hats at whatever form your celebration may take—foliage decoration, foraged nuts over ceremonial pyres, a festive photoshoot with your cat—but we laud most of all the exchange of fine gifts. Whether it be a show of devotion or an offering to an angered spirit, we have recommendations for all of the wondrous and woeful magic-makers in your life.

For Enchantresses

ENCHANTRESSES are beings of luxury and glamour—indulge in those ostrich feathers! Those fine faux furs, shimmers, and jewels! Turn to Circe or the Sisters Wyrd to put your ENCHANTRESS in touch with their rich lineage of desire and destruction.

A warm welcome, arcanists! I’m Xuannü, the WITCH of WILL and keeper of the coven at Crypto Coven.

As our anointed blockchain whisperer, I wrote the ERC-721 contract for the genesis series of 9,999 WITCHES, aided by our acolytes Oizys and Enthea and audited by our Solidity adeptus Mersenne.

We’ve been deeply gratified and (honestly) shocked to receive a lot of praise for our first foray into web3 development, and we’re quite proud of what we’ve been able to do with so little experience—we have a deeper dive into the contract as a whole in the works, coming soon.

However, for newer Solidity developers using the Crypto Coven contract as a reference, we wanted to pay it forward by sharing two bugs we’ve discovered in our contract and providing examples of correct implementations.

I’m Xuannü, the WITCH of WILL and keeper of the coven at Crypto Coven.

As some of you know, I worked on crafting the ERC-721 contract for the initial series of WITCHES for the project. It was the first smart contract I had ever written—about a week or two into knowing what a smart contract was at all. An experience better not repeated, decidedly, but an edifying one nonetheless.

The cryptic art of spellcasting in Solidity can be inscrutable at the surface, but we were able to draw from a collective pool of wisdom that deepens daily… and so we bring our own to you, young arcanists. Here is the story of a contract cast into the ether to bring to life a coven, as well as the trials encountered along the way—the curse of the void witch, and their untimely return.

Hello! ✨ I am Nyx, Witch of Woe for Crypto Coven. I conjure visions for the weird wilds through tone and concept, am one of our dual artists with Aletheia, and delicately weave layers of logic in code for the coven.

Today I’d like to speak to our generator and how a WITCH is forged.

generative witches - crypto coven characters are created through a mix of art + code
