 Title: Graphs of the total hashing speed Post by: Pieter Wuille on January 28, 2011, 05:38:20 PM Hello everyone,i've created some graphs showing the total hashing speed of the bitcoin network, and its growth:http://bitcoin.sipa.be/speed-small.pnghttp://bitcoin.sipa.be/growth-small.pngLarger versions can be found on http://bitcoin.sipa.be/speed.png (http://bitcoin.sipa.be/speed.png) and http://bitcoin.sipa.be/growth.png (http://bitcoin.sipa.be/growth.png).

GHashes estimated at 170 for today. Keep mining. ;) Title: Re: Graphs of the total hashing speed Post by: Pieter Wuille on January 29, 2011, 06:29:36 PM Quote from: fabianhjr on January 28, 2011, 07:53:29 PMSomething to note is that the first graph is a parabole and therby exponential. :PIf you look it as a parabole we are already past the slow increment towrds a huge one. GHashes estimated at 170 for today. Keep mining. ;)Not sure what you mean. A straight line on the graph would correspond to exponential growth. The only thing I notice is that the growth seems to be slowing down. My current estimate is indeed also around 170GHash/s.

So it goes 0.1 -> 1 -> 10 -> etc in the form of 10**n Title: Re: Graphs of the total hashing speed Post by: jib on January 29, 2011, 11:02:21 PM I'm not surprised that it's slowing down. A lot of the growth in hashing (at least 10x, maybe closer to 100x) was caused by the transition from slow CPU miners to SSE and GPU miners. Now that transition's gone as far as it can go (CPU mining is essentially worthless). Future growth will come from actual growth of the Bitcoin economy, and from Moore's Law.

Title: Re: Graphs of the total hashing speed Post by: DonnyCMU on August 13, 2011, 12:22:04 PM Can you overlay a BTC price onto the graph? I think there'll be some good correlation.
