I've seen online calculators use hashing power in H/s, MH/s and GH/s for various algorithms. How does one decide hashing power denomination must be used for mining income calculation? I feel like it has something to do with a specific coin Nethash but I can't figure it out...

Thanks in advance!

EDIT: or should I simply convert Nethash as well as user's hashing power into H/s and be done with it?

You need to put in the hashrate you have \ planning to have. The hashrate depends on the hardware and hash function.

For example, this Bitcoin mining device gives 16 TH/s, which is 16,000 GH/s - https://halongmining.com/shop/dragonmint-16t-miner/.

For GPUs, there are tables online that can give estimates for hashrate of GPU/function combinations, e.g. https://miningchamp.com/.


Whether you use H/s, GH/s, TH/s, PH/s doesn't really matter as long as both your numerator and denominator for the calculation uses the same measurement. If your machine is in GH/s then it might be best to convert the network hash rate into GH/s - but like I said, it doesn't really matter as long as you are consistent in your calculation.

This might not be part of the question but you can find the total hash rate in the network from a service provider such as https://blockchain.info/charts/hash-rate

When doing these calculations you should also keep in mind that the total hash power of the network has been increasing consistently over the existence of bitcoin.
