Dash Hash Rate Jumps 150% to 100 TH/s as Predicted

We predicted one week ago, the Dash hash rate would climb an unprecedented 150%+ to clear 100 TH/s within a two-week span as customers received their orders for the first wave of Bitmain D3s. So… it did.

Here’s what it looks like in case you’re wondering:

What’s important to note is that it’s not done growing. There’s an order shipping mid October. Another in early November, and another in late November. It’s going to continue to pile on hash power as additional machines are assembled and QA-ed. Each of those batches is likely another 60 TH/s.

That being said, the rate of growth is likely done growing. While it was a vast departure from the addition of a few GH/s week, it means that the network is going to continue to grow linearly at 60 TH/s every 3-4 weeks. Not comforting if you’re GPU mining – your contribution to the hash rate has already been diluted beyond negligibility. Those with new D3s enjoy your short reign as ruler of the Dash Hash.

This is the result of a shift in paradigms. This will not be the last time this occurs. That’s how we were able to predict this – what happened with Litecoin played out on the Dash network down to the batch size.

We’ll have more predictions to come. Stay tuned.

Oh, and if you need a home for your dash miners, give us a shout.

  1. […] Given the release of the Antminer A3, the calculator has been expanded to project Siacoin mining rewards. The default hash rate of units is set to 815 GH/s, the reported hash rate of the Antminer A3. Batch sizes have been set to 10,000 units to reflect the 15,000 A3s Bitmain reputedly sold in the first batch. There are already new batches planned, indicating the growth rate should remain greater than zero. If Dash is any indication, 10,000 additional units per month added to the global hash rate yields a similar number to that of the Antminer D3s which comprise the Dash network. […]
