Hash Rate

Hash rate is the measuring unit of the processing power of the Bitcoin or other Cryptocurrency network, utilizing proof of work mechanism. The Bitcoin network must make intensive mathematical operations for security purposes.

When the network reaches a hash rate of 100 Terahashes per second, it means it can make 100 trillion calculations per second. Difficulty to mine increases as the hash rate increases, so the block time is almost constant.
