# Hash Rate Calculator

## What Is Hash Rate (Hashrate)?

**Hash rate (also hashrate) in the context of Bitcoin Mining is the speed at which a computer such as a CPU, GPU or ASIC Bitcoin miner can perform the hashing algorithm. For example, if the mining pool can perform 10 trillion hashes per second, then its hash rate would equal 10 TH/s. The hash function used in Bitcoin is SHA256.**

## How To Use This Hash Rate Calculator

**To use this Bitcoin hashrate converter simply enter in the hash rate that your mining hardware says it’s capable of.** The calculator will automatically convert and display that value in all other units.

For example, to convert Mh/s to h/s simply type in how many Mh/s your mining hardware solves and it’ll convert hashrate for every other unit including the h/s one.

## Simple Hash Rate Conversion Table

Hash Rate Unit | Hash Rate | Hashes Per Second |
---|---|---|

1 H/s | 1 | One |

1 KH/s | 1,000 | One Thousand |

1 MH/s | 1,000,000 | One Million |

1 GH/s | 1,000,000,000 | One Billion |

1 TH/s | 1,000,000,000,000 | One Trillion |

1 PH/s | 1,000,000,000,000,000 | One Quadrillion |

1 EH/s | 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 | One Quintrillion |

1 ZH/s | 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 | One Sextillion |

## Difference Between H/s, kH/s, MH/s, GH/s, TH/s, PH/s, EH/s and ZH/s

**Hash power has its own units that scale up and down depending on how many zeros the value is and how much the given mining hardware can process.** It’s common to see hashpower in the order of TH/s which is 1,000,000,000,000 (one trillion) hashes per second.

- kH/s (Kilo-Hash per Second) = 1,000 Hashes/s
- MH/s (Mega-Hash per Second) = 1,000,000 Hashes/s
- GH/s (Giga-Hash per Second) = 1,000,000,000 Hashes/s
- TH/s (Tera-Hash per Second) = 1,000,000,000,000 Hashes/s
- PH/s (Peta-Hash per Second) = 1,000,000,000,000,000 Hashes/s
- EH/s (Exa-Hash per Second) = 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 Hashes/s
- ZH/s (Zetta-Hash per Second) = 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 Hashes/s

**Hashrate meaning can also refer to how fast the entire Bitcoin network is.** Currently most mining operations are located where there is cheap hydro power all around the world and its total hash rate is around 500 EH/x or 500,000,000,000,000,000,000 hashes per second.

Note: While all of the symbols like G or T are capitalized, the “k” in kilohash is kept lower case as a capital K represents Kelvin which is already used as the international system of units for temperature.

## Different Crypto Mining Units

While we only focus on Bitcoin here, do be aware that different cryptocurrencies use different hashing algorithms and as a result, have different units. For example Zcash uses the Equihash algorithm which is measured in ksol/s rather than kH/s.

## FAQ

### How Much Is 1 Tera Hash?

1 Terahash is equal to 1,000,000,000,000 hashes per second or one trillion hashes per second. This is just one unit that is used to measure the hash rate for computers that mine cryptocurrency.

### What Is The Hash Power Of A CPU?

Most modern day ASIC miners are measured in TH/s, where as most modern day CPU’s only run at a paltry 15-20+ kH/s. This is because CPU’s are more general purpose processing units where as ASIC’s have been designed for the Bitcoin SHA256 hash algorithm and nothing else.

### How Much Hashrate Is Needed To Mine 1 BTC?

If you use an Antminer S19 XP ASIC miner that hashes at 140 TH/s you will earn around 0.11344872 BTC per year. Therefor you’d need approximately 8.81 of them or about 1.23 PH/s mining for a full year before you’d earn 1 BTC.

### What Is The Difference Between GH And TH?

1 GH/s is equal to 1,000,000,000 hashes per second where as 1 TH/s is 1,000,000,000,000 hashes per second or 1,000 times more. To convert GH to TH simply multiply the GH/s value by 1,000.
