I saw the thread about jgarzik getting the first ASIC, and I was thinking. You could 51% a small alt-chain, say TRC, with a few ASICs.

The new Avalon ASIC runs at about 70 Ghash/s (reported by jgarzik).

Terracoin's network hashrate was estimated by crazy_rabbit (Nov 2012) to be running at about 100 Ghash/s

Two of the new ASICs could 51% terracoin. Watch out.

Yes. Use litecoin instead.

I think you're overestimating the significance of Terracoin.

This is what I'm thinking. Until many ASICs have found their ways into people's hands I don't see them being pointed at any altchains that aren't merged mined simply because the opportunity cost of having them not mine BTC.

Now Freicoins... with the controversy and haters they generated I could imagine people might care enough to pop over there every now and then to shut it down.

You could also do it with GPUs if you wanted. But why waste the time and money?

I am just stating fact. I did not say anyone would do it. All I said was that it was possible.
