One convenient way to convert standard date formats to UNIX timestamps is by using an online tool like EpochConverter. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to use it:
Visit the EpochConverter website.
On the homepage, you'll find an input field where you can enter your date and time in a standard format. For example, you can enter "Tuesday, 31 October 2023 10:00:00."
Click the "Human date to Timestamp" button, and the tool will instantly display the corresponding UNIX timestamp.
Let's take the example:
- Standard Date Format: Tuesday, 31 October 2023 10:00:00
- UNIX Timestamp: 1698746400
Once you have obtained the UNIX timestamp, you can use the UNIX timestamp as a parameter to fetch cryptocurrency data from CoinGecko API.
