Dash Mining Calculator

Last updated: 03.12.2019

This simple Dash mining calculator will allow you to determine how much you can profit from a certain Dash miner (for example, the Antminer D3). It takes into account all relevant costs such as hardware, electricity and fees. See below for detailed instructions on how to use it.

1 Dash = 161 USD

Difficulty Factor
Hash Rate
DASH/USD Exchange Rate
DASH/Block Reward
Pool Fees %
Hardware Cost (USD)
Power (Watts)
Power Cost (USD/kWh)

Instructions on how to use the Dash Mining Calculator:

  1. Enter the hash rate of the Dash miner you’re planning to use
  2. Enter additional info such as electricity price, hardware costs, etc. (optional)
  3. The profitability will be calculated automatically and displayed below the calculator

Keep in mind that:

  • While the calculator can give a you a good idea for your gear’s profitability, earnings ARE NOT profit. You still have to take into account the cost of your mining hardware and the electricity to run it (and cool it down if needed).
  • The earnings are based on the current DASH/USD exchange rate. This rate can (and probably will) change over time.
  • Profit is based on current difficulty to mine Dash. Difficulty can (and probably will) change. From past experience it usually goes up as time goes by.
  • All the data on the on the calculator can be adjusted manually. This is useful in case you want to simulate scenarios or if for some reason the data is not up-to-date (though normally it is).

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.
