Block timestamp

A block timestamp is a time of block generation.

The time is specified in milliseconds that have passed since the beginning of the Unix epoch.

When the node receives a new block from the blockchain network, it verifies that the timestamp value of the block does not outpace the UTC time by more than 100 milliseconds.

The timestamp value of the block is validated by nodes using the formula from FPoS.
