Searching the blockchain for evidence of time travel

Tinfoil hat time. Sites like and allow anyone to imbed data (encrypted or not) on the blockchain. That data is provably timestamped and will remain on the blockchain as long as there is one. Consider this scenario:

An encrypted piece of blockchain data from 2014 is discovered to perfectly match the hash of the 2016 election results.

That's just one example. It could be weather data, stock data, or any unpredictable info. If time travel is possible, the blockchain seems like the only way to prove it in a way that would be indisputable. If nothing else, this makes for a cool sci-fi plot.

Has there been a SETI-like project to search for information on the blockchain that came from the future?
