2. Calculator fields explained

Difficulty factor – The more people are trying to mine Dash, the harder it becomes to actually mine it. This is due to difficulty – a metric that measures “how hard is it to mine?” at the current moment. This information is taken automatically from the Dash network, you do not need to change it.

Hash Rate – How powerful is your miner. The more Hash Rate it can produce, the higher your mining rewards will be.  Normally you can get the Hash Rate of a specific miner from its manufacturer.

DASH/Block reward – How many Dash are distributed each time a successful block is mined. This information updates from time to time to keep the Dash money supply in check.

DASH/USD exchange rate – How much USD can you get for 1 DASH.

Pool fees – Usually miners group together into mining pools in order to increase their chances of successful mining. The pool takes a certain fee from the earnings.

Hardware cost – How much did it cost you to buy your Dash miner.

Power – How much energy does your miner consume. This information should be supplied by the manufacturer.

Power cost – How much are you paying for a KiloWatt per hour of electricity in USD.
