The Bitcoin network hashrate chart can be used to visualize Bitcoin mining hashrate increases and decreases viewable in segment options of daily, weekly, monthly, 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, 3 years, and all time.
What is Bitcoin Hashrate?
Bitcoin hashrate is a calculated numerical value that specifies an estimate of how many hashes are being generated by Bitcoin miners trying to solve the current Bitcoin block or any given block.
Bitcoin hashrate is represented in Hashes per Second or H/s.
The global Bitcoin 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 Bitcoin block time between mined blocks versus the defined block time as variables to determine the global Bitcoin network hashrate.
As the Bitcoin network hashrate goes up - the BTC 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 Bitcoin hashrate is 121.58 EH/s, representing the global Bitcoin network hashrate with a mining difficulty of 16.85 T at block height 642,006.
|Hashrate Unit/s||Hash||Hashes Per Second|
|kH/s (KiloHash)||1,000||One Thousand|
|MH/s (MegaHash)||1,000,000||One Million|
|GH/s (GigaHash)||1,000,000,000||One Billion|
|TH/s (TeraHash)||1,000,000,000,000||One Trillion|
|PH/s (PetaHash)||1,000,000,000,000,000||One Quadrillion|
|EH/s (ExaHash)||1,000,000,000,000,000,000||One Quintillion|
|ZH/s (ZettaHash)||1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000||One Sextillion|
|YH/s (YottaHash)||1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000||One Septillion|
It is important to point out the Bitcoin hashrate does not determine how quickly or slowly each block is solved.
This timing, called the block time is enforced by the Bitcoin mining difficulty value, which is adjusted upwards or downwards during each block difficulty retarget to keep blocks being solved at a constant time frame.

What is the Current Bitcoin Hashrate?
The current Bitcoin hashrate (BTC hashrate) is 121.58 EH/s at block height 642,006 with a difficulty of 16,847,561,611,550.27.

How to Calculate Bitcoin Hashrate
The Bitcoin hashrate is calculated using the current Bitcoin difficulty, the defined Bitcoin block time, and the average block time of the last (X) number of blocks.
Most full Bitcoin nodes will have an option to see the current Bitcoin global hashrate using the "getnetworkhashps" command in the console window.
Given the fact that the Bitcoin 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 Bitcoin that can be mined in a given time frame.
