Interpretation

Given that proof-of-work cryptocurrencies share a great variety of algorithms, with widely diverging features, hashrate is not comparable between them. The exception is cases where distinct assets share the same hash function, as is the case with BTC, BCH, and BSV for instance. To benchmark security between assets with different hash functions, a metric like security spend (Issuance, Total, USD) might be consulted instead.
