Back in May, the bitcoin network hashrate estimate on passed 1 exaFLOPS – over 8 times the combined speed of the top 500 supercomputers. Today the aggregate bitcoin FLOPS measurement stands at 64 exaFLOPS. To contrast that number, this month the top500 supercomputers combined clocked in at 0.250 exaFLOPS. So the entire bitcoin network is roughly 256 times faster than all the 500 supercomputers around the globe combined.
