Easily Calculate kH/s to MH/s to GH/s to TH/s!
Enter all the needed inputs to recieve a converted result
The formula behind our HashPower Converter
1 MH/s = 1,000 kH/s
1 GH/s = 1,000 MH/s = 1,000,000 kH/s
1 TH/s = 1,000 GH/s = 1,000,000 MH/s = 1,000,000,000 kH/s
Brief Description HashPower Converter
This Calculator was made to help you convert a hash rate (MH/s, GH/s or TH/s) to kH/s.
Convert Example: You have a cloud mining rate of 2 MH/s and want to know how much kH/s this hash power equals. The calculator makes the conversation and receives as a result that 2 MH/s equal the hash power of 2,000 kH/s.
Understand what the most commonly used hashing abbreviations mean:
- kH/s – kilo hashes per second
- MH/s – mega hashes per second
- GH/s – giga hashes per second
- TH/s – tera hashes per second
It is important to note, that the k in kH/s is small since a capital ‘K’ would mean kelvin, a unit for thermodynamic temperature.
What is Hashing?
Hashing is basically an algorithm, that transfers any string input in a given output of specific length. Bitcoin uses i.e. SHA256 as the hashing algorithm.
Hashing is used in the process of “finding” or mining each new bock on the blockchain (where proof-of-work is used). In the case of the bitcoin blockchain, there are many input parameters like the transactions and a nonce (random number). After hashing all this info, there is obviously a new output. This output now gets compared to the current difficulty level of the network. If the hash output is lower, then the block is valid and thus you are able to collect the block reward! If not, then you try to hash a new nonce (new random number). This is done millions of times until some lucky one gets the correct value. So the hash rate is the number of attempts per second to solve the blockchain puzzle and find a valid block.
TL;DR: Hashing is a function used by the Bitcoin blockchain. The higher your hashing rate is, the faster you are able to solve the given puzzle, and thus the higher your chances are to get rewarded for finding the block!
