What is Ethereum Hashrate?
Ethereum hashrate is a calculated numerical value that specifies an estimate of how many hashes are being generated by Ethereum miners trying to solve the current Ethereum block or any given block.
Ethereum hashrate is represented in Hashes per Second or H/s.
The global Ethereum 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 Ethereum block time between mined blocks versus the defined block time as variables to determine the global Ethereum network hashrate.
As the Ethereum network hashrate goes up - the ETH 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 Ethereum hashrate is 268.35 TH/s, representing the global Ethereum network hashrate with a mining difficulty of 3.22 P at block height 10,903,194.
|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 Ethereum hashrate does not determine how quickly or slowly each block is solved.
This timing, called the block time is enforced by the Ethereum 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 Ethereum Hashrate?
The current Ethereum hashrate (ETH hashrate) is 268.35 TH/s at block height 10,903,194 with a difficulty of 3,220,213,194,831,846.00.

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