Discussion about Primecoin and its infra. Primecoin is a very innovative cryptocurrency, being the 1st non Hash-Cash PoW crypto, naturally scarce (not artificially), with very fast confirmations (1min), elastic readjusting reward & a useful mining (byproducts are primes). Primecoin is sustainable (miners are guaranteed to have revenues), and decentralized (ASIC/FPGA are not particularly advantaged). Sidechain for decentralized data applications (e.g. Storj) currently in development.
This might seem like a fairly abstract question and might not be answerable, but I'm trying to calculate the rough odds of getting a single block hash correct per attempt. This is for the purpose of explanation/analogy rather than something I need to calculate. I notice there's a "Bitcoin difficulty" which is currently at 860 billion-ish. Is it reasonable to interpret this as a 1/860,000,000,000 chance of a correct hash, or does it not mean that? Given the network's current hash rate of approx 5,000,000 TH/s that number would seem absurdly low. I assume it's some sort of scaling factor. Given a correct answer occurs (by design) every 10 minutes that equates to roughly 3e+21 hashes before a correct hash is registered. I have no idea what that is in human numbers but more than 860 billion is a given. Is it right (probability-wise) to put the odds of a single hash attempt at 1/3e+21 or does it not work that way? Can anyone help me out with the ballpark math here?
I figured that i can get estimated ROI for 700$ on genesis cloud mining, in about 1 year or so mining bitcoin, hash calculator says its gonna take 6 months but i really doubt. Even if i take in count the fees for bitcoin, it still looks too easy, am i missing something? Or does this ROI rate actually makes sense?
How do People Calculate the Total Hash Power of Bitcoin
I see this number everywhere but I have no idea how anyone could know that. How does it work?!? Edit: How can you see that until they succeed? You don't see all the failed hashes, right? And how do you know who to watch? 🤔

Our calculator assumes the 0.4527678% daily increase in network hash rate that has been the average daily increase over the past 6 months. Without factoring in this growth, most Bitcoin mining calculators show results that appear MUCH, MUCH more profitable than reality. The CoinDesk Bitcoin Calculator tool allows you to convert any amount to and from bitcoin (up to six decimal places) and your preferred world currencies, with conversion rates based on the live ... The Bitcoin hashrate is number of possible solutions (hashes) being generated per second. As of January 2020, the Bitcoin hashrate peaked at 131 EH/s. Bitcoin mining also generates new Bitcoin. When a Bitcoin miner finds the correct hash to solve the next Bitcoin block, the miner is rewarded with Bitcoin. Find out what your expected return is depending on your hash rate and electricity cost. Find out if it's profitable to mine Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, DASH or Monero.
