“When buying ASIC bitcoin miners, look for the highest hash per second.”

Definition(s) from the Web

  1. The hash rate is the measuring unit of the processing power of the Bitcoin network. The Bitcoin network must make intensive mathematical operations for security purposes. When the network reached a hash rate of 10 Th/s, it meant it could make 10 trillion calculations per second. Source
  2. The hash rate is the primary measure of a Bitcoin miner’s performance. In 2014, a miner’s performance was generally measured in Ghash/s, or billions of hashes per second. Source
  3. Bitcoin mining is a competitive endeavor. An “arms race” has been observed through the various hashing technologies that have been used to mine bitcoins: basic CPUs, high-end GPUs common in many gaming computers, FPGAs and ASICs all have been used, each reducing the profitability of the less-specialized technology.
