Is Bitcoin a Supercomputer?


📚 What is Supercomputer? 

A supercomputer is a computer with a high level of performance as compared to a general-purpose computer. The performance of a supercomputer is commonly measured in floating-point operations per second instead of million instructions per second.


📚 Bitcoin is Supercomputer? 🧐

💡 According to some experts, Bitcoin networks have a computing power of over 2,046,364 Pflop/s.

♟ To give you a clear idea of how much that is, the computing power of 500 supercomputers would give you around 274 Pflop/s.

🧩 At present, the mining power of Bitcoin’s network is 300 times more powerful than the world’s top 5 supercomputers combined.


💻 FLOPS

In computing, floating point operations per second ( FLOPS, flops or flop/s ) is a measure of computer performance, useful in fields of scientific computations that require floating-point calculations. For such cases it is a more accurate measure than measuring instructions per second.

⏳ In Computer Performance: petaFLOPS ~ PFLOPS (Unit) ~ 10¹⁵ (Value)

📡 Data from monitoring resource Blockchain confirmed that the Bitcoin network’s total hash rate reached a peak of 126.91 Tera hashes per second (TH/s) on July 30

" Mining hashrate is a key security metric. The more hashing (computing) power in the network, the greater its security and its overall resistance to attack. Although Bitcoin’s exact hashing power is unknown, it is possible to estimate it from the number of blocks being mined and the current block difficulty. "
