Convert Unix UTC Field to Any Timezone

Timezone Conversion
CryptoDataDownload uses a column called "Unix" in all of its OHLCV CSV files. This field represents the server time of the exchange for the time interval specified. Most computers use "epoch" or UTC timezone as the internal computer clock. Therefore, the unix timestamp is universal UTC time. Because we have the original unix timestamp, you are able to convert it into a human readable date for the time zone local to you (or any you specify). This code example is shorter than most; and shows how you can use a built in pandas function to convert the epoch / unix timestamps.
