The word Timechain can be used to refer to the nature of the Bitcoin [[Block chain]] as a chain of timestamped events in history.

It is possible to include more accurate timestamp information in a Bitcoin transaction as part of an [[Application layer protocol]] however this must be done with the explicit intent of a secondary system existing that can interpret the time in the format used in the transaction payload.
