# What is Hash Rate?

### Hash Rate is the output of a hash function and, as it relates to Bitcoin, the Hash Rate is the speed at which a compute is completing an operation in the Bitcoin code. ### Hash rate, as I said, is a unit measured in hashes per second or [h/s] and here are some usual denominations used to refer it.Hash rate denominations.

• 1 kH/s is 1,000 (one thousand) hashes per second

• 1 MH/s is 1,000,000 (one million) hashes per second.

• 1 GH/s is 1,000,000,000 (one billion) hashes per second.

• 1 TH/s is 1,000,000,000,000 (one trillion) hashes per second.

• 1 PH/s is 1,000,000,000,000,000 (one quadrillion) hashes per second.

• 1 EH/s is 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 (one quintillion) hashes per second.

### Common Hash rate Conversions

• 1 MH/s = 1,000 kH/s

• 1 GH/s = 1,000 MH/s = 1,000,000 kH/s

• 1 TH/s = 1,000 GH/s = 1,000,000 MH/s = 1,000,000,000 kH/sand so forth

### Bitcoin Network’s Hash Rate & Distribution As Of Now? ### Bitcoin network’s hash rate now is 9.9 TH/s and is only growing as the more miners are joining in so more difficulty is going up. Tags:
