I'm fetching my active credits in BFX and trying to discover when I'll have my funding back. This is a response example:


    amount: "294.4316181",
    currency: "USD",
    id: 15778083,
    period: 2,
    rate: "16.816",
    status: "ACTIVE",
    timestamp: "1454846632.0"
}, ...

But new Date(1454846632.0) returns a very old date, what makes me think this timestamp isn't there to be converted into a real date at all.

I am doing something wrong? How can I discover the remaining time of a credit I provided?

    This is kind of off-topic, as converting timestamps is more of a regular programming question than a cryptocurrency specific issue. However, the question is well-written, got an answer quickly, and might be of use to others, so I'll not vote to close.

The problem is not with the timestamp, it's with your method of converting the timestamp to local time.

As this SO question describes, convert it this way:

var dt = new Date(0);

Which prints Sun Feb 07 2016 07:03:52 GMT-0500 (EST).
