So I'm curious: is it possible to create bitcoin mininig software based on cheap and energy-efficient Sigma 863x-865x chipsets? These SoCs are used in set-top-boxes and media players like WD TV to play HD video.
Once a transaction has 6 confirmations, it is extremely unlikely that an attacker without at least 50% of the network's computation power would be able to reverse it.

How fast do they calculate hashes? Anything Float based is useless for Bitcoin and I suspect these to be quite Float heavy in their usual calculations.
