Hash rate

1. network

A numeric representation of how much hash power is used to secure the network. The more hash power a blockchain has behind it, the harder it becomes to attack and take control of.

2. mining

A numeric representation of the speed at which the hardware is able to execute hashes and solve proof of work algorithms. The higher the hash rate a piece of mining hardware is able to produce the more profitable it is assuming all other factors like power consumption are constant.
