## What is Zcash Hashrate?

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

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

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

As the Zcash network hashrate goes up - the ZEC 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 Zcash hashrate is 6.28 GH/s, representing the global Zcash network hashrate with a mining difficulty of 60.28 M at block height 849,490.

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

This timing, called the block time is enforced by the Zcash 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 Zcash Hashrate

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

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

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

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