What is a unix timestamp?

A Unix timestamp is a way of representing a point in time as a single number, which is the number of seconds that have elapsed since January 1, 1970, at 00:00:00 UTC (Coordinated Universal Time).

The Unix timestamp is widely used in computer systems and programming languages, especially in Unix-based operating systems such as Linux, macOS, and FreeBSD. It is a convenient way of representing time because it is a single number that can be easily stored and manipulated in software.

The Unix timestamp is also sometimes referred to as "Epoch time" or "POSIX time". It can be converted to a human-readable date and time using various software tools and programming libraries.
