The Litecoin network hashrate chart can be used to visualize Litecoin 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 Litecoin Hashrate?

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

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

The global Litecoin 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 Litecoin block time between mined blocks versus the defined block time as variables to determine the global Litecoin network hashrate.

As the Litecoin network hashrate goes up - the LTC 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 Litecoin hashrate is 277.67 TH/s, representing the global Litecoin network hashrate with a mining difficulty of 9.44 M at block height 1,893,033.

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

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

## How to Calculate Litecoin Hashrate

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

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

Given the fact that the Litecoin 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 Litecoin that can be mined in a given time frame.

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