Buying Carpe Diem Coins

CarpDiemCoin.org

Carpe diem is an aphorism usually translated "seize the day"
From a poem written in the Odes in 23 BC by the Latin poet Horace


What does Carpe Diem have to do with virtual currencies?
Great question! Carpe Diem, seize the day, inspired this coin. By taking advantage of today instead of waiting for tomorrow, you will ensure yourself a stronger stake in the DIEM block chain. With block reward halvings every day and only 8 second blocks, DIEM aims to corner both the long-term investor market, as well as the merchant interest with extremely fast transactions and an ASIC backed network for added security


Won't 8 second blocks have tons of forks at launch?
We knew 8 second blocks were going to be what merchants needed, but it leaves us open to a launch full of miniforks, as many coins have done in the past. Those were also Scrypt, not SHA, and ASIC mining at launch brought another factor we had to use in our math. In the end, we chose a very fast difficulty retarget, active on launch to avoid instant mining, and set up the network a little different prior to launch

When setting up the initial seednodes, we actually mined 1 block per node (16 blocks) at 40,000 DIEM each instead of the standard 1,000,000, also using standard BTC diff retarget so it would stay at launch difficulty. This was our "safe guard" to ensure no mini forks on launch. After those first blocks were mined, we took the entire network down and forked the coin to properly reward 1,000,000 DIEM each, and implemented our difficulty retargeting. Essentially, we hard coded a hard fork to DIEM and launched with the post fork clients. This is why you won't see the fork in the code, but a block explorer will verify all of this

Anyway, why did we do these extra steps? Simple. When connecting to the network for the first time, your client had to go through either the seed nodes or proper, synced nodes, and "checkpoint" the first few blocks at different rewards. This way if someone got a minifork from block 1, they would not be able to continue due to no connections, which also stops that node from spreading any misinformation

As you have all seen, it worked flawlessly. Even with the huge hash rate fluctuations of the first day of a coin, we STILL were only 45 minutes ahead of schedule, thanks to our planning and difficulty retargeting

TL:DR; DIEM didn't fork once, even with ASIC mining and 8 second blocks and the difficulty is working perfectly. Flawless launch and difficulty adjustments


Translation
Carpe is the second-person singular present active imperative of carpō, "pick or pluck," used by Ovid to mean "enjoy, seize, use, make use of". Diem is the accusative case of the noun "dies", that means "day". A less literal translation of "Carpe diem" would thus be "enjoy the day" or "pluck the day [as it is ripe]"


Original usage from Odes 1.11, in Latin and English:
Tu ne quaesieris, scire nefas, quem mihi, quem tibi finem di dederint, Leuconoe, nec Babylonios temptaris numeros. ut melius, quidquid erit, pati. seu pluris hiemes seu tribuit Iuppiter ultimam, quae nunc oppositis debilitat pumicibus mare Tyrrhenum. Sapias, vina liques et spatio brevi spem longam reseces. dum loquimur, fugerit invida aetas: carpe diem, quam minimum credula postero.
---
Don't ask (it's forbidden to know) what end the gods have given me or you, Leuconoe. Don't play with Babylonian numerology either. How much better it is to endure whatever will be! Whether Jupiter has allotted you many more winters or this one, which even now wears out the Tyrrhenian sea on the opposing rocks, is the final one — be wise, be truthful, strain the wine, and scale back your long hopes to a short period. While we speak, envious time will have {already} fled: seize the day, trusting as little as possible in the next (day).


Carpe Diem concept
Perhaps the first written expression of the concept is the advice given by Siduri to Gilgamesh, telling him to forgo his mourning and embrace life although some scholars see it as simply urging Gilgamesh to abandon his mourning, "reversing the liminal rituals of mourning and returning to the normal and normative behaviors of Mesopotamian society."


Meaning
In Horace, the phrase is part of the longer Carpe diem quam minimum credula postero, which can be translated as "Seize the day, put very little trust in tomorrow (/the future)". The ode says that the future is unforeseen and that one should not leave to chance future happenings, but rather one should do all one can today to make one's future better. This phrase is usually understood against Horace's Epicurean background. It is important to note that the "Carpe diem" phrase is often misinterpreted and misused in contemporary popular culture, to justify reckless behaviour ("you only live once"). However, the meaning of Carpe diem is not to ignore the future, but rather not to trust that everything is going to fall into place for you and taking action for the future today.

Addnode doesn't work, no connection. That makes an easy instamine for the "dev".

The addnode is up, but you shouldn't even need it, the seed node are very stable

You can mine it from the client.

I don't trust any client though, I'd only mine it from a pool.

Waiting for one.
