There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Header-only clients like MultiBit trust that the majority of mining power is honest for the purposes of enforcing network rules such as the 21 million BTC limit. Full clients do not trust miners in this way.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SI_prefix

1000 mega (anything) = 1 Giga (anything)*

* Yes binary is different but doesn't apply here and should properly use a different prefix.

Should either be 1000MH = 1 GH or 1024 MH = 1GH. I think it's the first one probably.

Wow see how no one bitched at the guy for asking such a retardely simple question, that's exactly how it should be.

Stop being gay bitches on the internet people.

Technically, since about 1998, 1 giga = 1000 mega of anything and 1 gibi = 1024 mebi of anything although some people still use mega and giga when they should be using mebi and gibi...

See NIST definition:  http://physics.nist.gov/cuu/Units/binary.html

So 1 gigahash/second = 1000 megahashes/second and 1 gibihash/second = 1024 mebihashes/second

Also note that 1 mebihash/second = 1,048,576 hashes/second and 1 megahash/second = 1,000,000 hashes/second.

Bitcoin must have unqualified fungibility to survive as a form of money.  We must support all efforts that protect and improve the fungible nature of Bitcoin and stand firmly against anyone or anything which threatens this essential property.

I don't remember people bitching at you when you asked *similar* questions either. This is the newbies' forum.

I don't remember people bitching at you when you asked solar questions either. This is the newbies' forum.

WTF are you talking about, people keep bitching around here, it's literally the noob forums and people keep bitching.

Sorry autocorrect - should be similar instead. You're bitching now.

I'm in the newbie forum for a reason, sometimes hearing opinions from miners is less confusing that's all.

If I helped, you know what to do Wink
