No, but they did rob their customers and claim they were hacked.

I think they will come back. Maybe offer users no fee for a long, long period of time to recover this loss.
That service was so widely used and I don't think they ll give up on that. Just wait and see, they did say 24 hours.

It is not only Nicehash, but hashflare.io is also about of service. Could it be related?

Only simpleminded people will only believe that this mining service got hacked, its simple that they run and steal the funds from their user. And don't expect they will operate again or refund. This is not new, most mining services did this same like hashocean when the Bitcoin price increased.
So move on, but wait hashflare will be the next in line, anyway those small time investor cant afford to withdraw their funds there since hashflare set their minimum withdraw to a huge one.

They will not surely cameback since how could they refund the funds of their investors for this matter? The what so called hack amount is big and that is totally made the nicehash became emptied and I think this scenario can make their business closed, But we should be more optimistic on the other side since theirs also a possibilities that maybe they are decide to scam their investor since they've see that the price of bitcoins soar high and their operation is not profitable for theirselves.

It is not only Nicehash, but hashflare.io is also about of service. Could it be related?

Well maybe and if hashflare gone well a huge lose for all of the investor who believe on both legit cloudmining site wanna be.

Oh no, sorry Nicehash users. However you should have not been investing in cloudmining in the first place. The profit gained is more advantageous to the operator than the user.

Having said that, is anyone expecting a twist in the story? All it needed was one heinous employee to execute the "hack".

Piss off you twat, it's a mining pool.

No, they also sold hashing power for BTC and some altcoins.

With that said, I'm not sure how much in BTC they sold but with the amount reported to be stolen, I would consider that they sold a large sum of mining contracts.

It's not cloud mining. Cloud mining is an all around shady business that usually isn't really what they claim to be. Nicehash was a hashrate marketplace, where they provided the market and took fees on people buying and selling hashing power. People didn't buy "contracts" for x amount of time, they just paid for it as they used it.

No, but they did rob their customers and claim they were hacked.

That could have been the case, but we don't know. They could have legitimately gotten hacked, but then there is no proof for either of these scenarios honestly. All you can do is speculate right now and either way, i don't think it helps you any more or less to get your money back.

If you want to take their word for it, go ahead. But there is also suspicion that they have pulled a runaway scam.

From the start though, you shouldn't have stored anything more than what you could afford to lose on their site. It wasn't supposed to be a wallet.

You can piss off too, they only allowed withdraws of "mined coins" every 24h and that's only if you mined to their wallet, if you mined to your own external wallet they only processed once a week unless you mined more than .01 btc. So really just fuck off with your blame the victim retoric especially when it's fucking bullshit you fucking shitstain.
