IoT security: MIT’s low power encryption chip

more custom chips...

MIT’s low power encryption chip could make IoT devices more secure

"...encryption... is energy-intensive. MIT is working on a new chip, however, to perform this sort of public-key encryption that only uses 1/400 as much power as a software solution would. In addition, the chip uses about 1/10 as much memory and executes processes 500 times as fast."

Could specialized HW like this also help adoption of block-chain technology?
