## What is 42 Hashrate?

42 hashrate is a calculated numerical value that specifies an estimate of how many hashes are being generated by 42 miners trying to solve the current 42 block or any given block.

42 hashrate is represented in Hashes per Second or H/s.

The global 42 network hashrate is a calculated value and is measured in hashes per second (H/s). The calculation uses the current mining difficulty and the average 42 block time between mined blocks versus the defined block time as variables to determine the global 42 network hashrate.

As the 42 network hashrate goes up - the 42 hashrate numbers get so large that abbreviations must be used.

The abbreviations are SI derived units representing the number of hashes performed in a one second time frame.

### The current 42 hashrate is 175.91 MH/s, representing the global 42 network hashrate with a mining difficulty of 1.73 at block height 1,612,985.

It is important to point out the 42 hashrate does not determine how quickly or slowly each block is solved.

This timing, called the block time is enforced by the 42 mining difficulty value, which is adjusted upwards or downwards during each block difficulty retarget to keep blocks being solved at a constant time frame.

You can calculate 42 mining profits using the current 42 hashrate difficulty and our 42 hashrate calculator.

## How to Calculate 42 Hashrate

The 42 hashrate is calculated using the **current 42 difficulty**,
the **defined 42 block time**, and the average block time of the last (X) number of blocks.

Most full 42 nodes will have an option to see the current 42 global hashrate using the "getnetworkhashps" command in the console window.

Given the fact that the 42 difficulty value determines statically how many hashes are needed to solve the next block, it is recommended to use the current mining difficulty to determine the statistically accurate number of 42 that can be mined in a given time frame.

Once again we recommend using our 42 hashrate difficulty calculator as the current 42 difficulty is preloaded, along with the latest 42 price.
