Before you read this, forget everything you have ever known, tear down the pillars of your beliefs, erase your ideas: nothing here seems to follow any of the rules that govern the world we come from.
Thoughts and dreams come alive and intertwine with matter, absorbing and releasing energy and creating life in an infinite cycle of coexistence and codependence. The rules of genetics and evolution don’t apply here, everything is governed by a living web of energy, intelligence and matter.
My name is Attica, I am an invasion ecologist. They call me the bug hunter.
I was investigating the colonisation of our world by alien species, when I believe I got trapped in a parallel reality that I am only starting to comprehend.
These are my notes and drawings, describing this unknown reality to the best of my understanding, bounded by the limits of my senses, and somehow governed by the nature of my dreams.
In the considerable portion of my existence that I have spent as part of this Universe, I have come to know different creatures, directly or through narration. Because they eluded the traditional rules of taxonomy, I have classified them as decks of tarot cards, a passion I inherited from my father, and a concept that is constantly in my dreams.
The Tarot Machine
Instead of curating a collection of pre-generated artwork, all the 10,000 MinorArcana are truly randomly generated with the CyberTarotMachine script that takes a random seed from ChainLink.
The random seed and the hash of the script are saved in the CyberTarot NFT contract before the minting starts, and the script is available on IPFS.
Anyone can run the script and prove the randomized traits based on the initial random seed.
The Minor Arcana
The CyberTarot MinorArcana are stored as ERC-721 (NFT) tokens on the Ethereum blockchain. Their metadata will be hosted on IPFS after the initial generation.
Each CyberTarot is randomly generated from 500 drawings and 580 unique traits, including head, body, legs, rank, suit, hats, wings, pets, friends, and many more.
All the final NFTs will be available in high resolution vector image files on IPFS.
The Swap Market
Like swapping cards in real life, the Swap market allows people to swap cards atomically with a single transactions. The "giver" can put a card on the market with just a signature, without having to pay gas. The "taker" can send a transaction with the giver's signature and swap the 2 cards.
If Alice has 2 cards with rank 1, and needs one with rank 2 to complete a deck (cards with rank from 0 to 9), she can generate a signature and share it with friends. Anyone can send a transaction with her signature to swap their rank 2 card with Alice's rank 1 card.
Having a full deck allows to mint MajorArcana shares.
The Major Arcana
The Cyber Tarot MajorArcana is a set of only 22 fractionalized NFTs that will be released in the second phase.
Each one will be minted once, and anyone with a full MinorArcana deck will be able to take some shares of them.
A royal deck (cards from rank 0 to 9 of the same suit) will give 10 times more shares than a normal deck.
