A fun Bitcoin statistic

17.6 petaflops: Computing power of Titan, the world’s top supercomputer 

162 petaflops: Combined computing power of all 500 of the world’s most powerful supercomputers

1,085 petaflops: Current computing power of the computers linked together in Bitcoin’s network

(Yes I know petaflops aren’t really a good measure of Bitcoin hashpower and that the new custom ASIC miners can’t do floating-point calculations and so technically run at 0 flops. It’s a thought experiment. Play along. -Stacy)
