So you can easily convert from cryptotime to GMT time.

What is the authenticated algorithm to convert GMT time to cryptotime
for a) Bitcoin blockchain; b) NIST whatever-its-called ?

And unlike Bitcoin, where millions of processors are working very hard
to make sure that it can't be hacked, where are those millions of
processors to make sure that the NIST chain can't be hacked?
