        now = int(time.time())
        chain = Blockchain(mode='head')
        current_block = chain.get_current_block_num()
        blocktime = chain.block_time(current_block)
        blocktimestamp = chain.block_timestamp(current_block)
        drift = now - blocktimestamp
        drifthours = drift/3600
        print ('block           :', current_block)

        return current_block, blocktimestamp, drift   

dex('blocktime')

It's a core bug?

Abit More, [26.02.18 09:58]
Timestamp Without tz

Abit More, [26.02.18 09:58]
But too late to fix

はるか, [26.02.18 09:58]
Timestamp should always be epoch I think

BTS litepresence1, [26.02.18 09:59]
from user perspective I agree

Abit More, [26.02.18 09:59]
When converted to or from String,lack of a z at the end

はるか, [26.02.18 10:00]
ah yes it's missing a Z

はるか, [26.02.18 10:00]
so it needs all clients to manually handle that...

Abit More, [26.02.18 10:00]
Py lib can add it

Abit More, [26.02.18 10:00]
Yes
