I think in bitcoin, the transaction is not fully approved until it is 10 deep in the chain. This is based on the fact that there could be competing chains out there, especially in the first round, but by the 10th, it’s collapsed to just one with that transaction in it. So, you can pick the earlier timestamp, but ultimately, you’ll end up with the longest chain.
