NiceHash users allegedly lost $ 61 million in hacker attack
Users of the “largest crypto mining market” NiceHash report that all their money (4,736 BTC or $ 61.5 million at the current exchange rate) was transferred to one bitcoin address during the day. At the same time, the site itself was closed for maintenance a few hours ago, as the service team reported on social networks.
Users assume that the service may have been the victim of a major hacker attack. Many of them are depressed, as evidenced by the huge number of posts on Reddit, Twitter and VKontakte..
“Guys, I don’t want to be negative, but I think all the bitcoins are gone. Check my address for deposits. A few hours ago, the balance dropped to zero “.
“Why is my NiceHash wallet balance zero? I checked the transactions through a third party service and it showed zero “.
However, someone thanks the service for the good work.
“Hey NiceHash. The last 6 months have not been that bad. Thanks for the payments, and I’m glad I didn’t use your wallet, so I only lost the payment for the last week. “.
There are no details or confirmed information about this incident yet..
Users continue to expect an official response from the company, however, less and less relying on a happy ending.
