So after reading some information about mining I wanted to know if the only reward for a miner is the block reward or if there a reward per hash, if yes how to find the amount a miner generate per hash?


The reward is per block, it can't be per hash because the number of hashes a miner computed is not known to the network. Furthermore, only the miner who finds a block is rewarded.

  • Thanks for your answer, if i remind well the reward per block is x cryptocurency, but why do i win some cents when mining but not making block ? Its a litlle bit confusing, there a participation reward ? – Wolt Apr 9 '18 at 15:55
  • If you mine with a pool, the mining pool will reward you based on the number of shares that you submit. However the Bitcoin network as a whole only pays to the miner (or mining pool) that solves a block. – Andrew Chow Apr 9 '18 at 15:56
