I have a private blockchian and I am using Parity's chain spec to create it. The first block always gets labeled as 01/01/70 and I wonder what I must change in order to set it to today's date?

  • In the genesis section there's an optional field named timestamp, it is the genesis block timestamp in unix time format (github.com/paritytech/parity/wiki/Chain-specification). – Ismael Nov 11 '17 at 5:42
  • @Ismael Thank you! I've looked at that page so many times, but didn't see it. And I was searching for "date" and "start" but not "time" for some reason. Thank you. If you want to make this an actual answer I will mark it correct. – stone.212 Nov 14 '17 at 1:03
  • I do not have parity client to test with, if you have a specs sample that works it will be good f you answer it yourself. – Ismael Nov 14 '17 at 16:55

As @Ismael says, "In the genesis section there's an optional field named timestamp, it is the genesis block timestamp in unix time format" so that means using a converter like this and entering that value as your timestamp value: https://www.epochconverter.com/
