I believe it is an exit scam too. Don't you find it strange that this happened just when the price hit an all time high. Exit scams have something in common, they all wait for the perfect moment and the all time price of bitcoin was the perfect moment for them. Even if they come back users re trusting them are just stupid.

I believe it's an exit scam as well, but in current times where the price is higher than ever before, hackers and idiots spreading malware are as well in the highest ever active numbers. It's in their advantage to use it as an excuse to mislead authorities investigating this case. If they get away with it, nothing stops them from launching another service where they again end up running away with millions in user funds. It may very well be that this isn't their first exit scam. If they manage to successfully do it once, they will do it another time as well -- the hunger for more is always there, especially if it's so easy to do.

Don't hope for it, I doubt that they'll pay their thousands of users that has remaining balance on their wallets. That's a lot, they can't even talk properly on that video chat and their faces is full of mourn.

They are just giving some words of encouragement but if you are hoping for your balance to be returned better be not so that you can accept it easily.

But still it's possible that they'll be giving the favor to their users or else they'll lose a lot though they are giving one of the best service but still too bad this happened.

Just hope they do but do expect the worst... I have not seen these type of companies come back from the dead honestly. If they do it is truly a miracle. And even if they have good intentions to begin with and they have indeed gotten hacked, think about it, who would trust them after these events? probably nobody. And to pay off their debts they need some source of income ,nad if nobody trusts them, how are they going to do it?

Either way, it's a huge messup, either intentionally or unintentially.

I would consider whatever i have on that site gone for good.

Agreed, surely this would go in 2 ways, its true they were hacked by other people or an inside job. Right now the only thing they are releasing is their apology but let us just wait for some time if they would ever release the truth about that incident. Also this would make a bad impact on bitcoin. Some new traders would say it cannot be hacked but why is that? These are some of the things that some countries dont trust bitcoin and banning it in their own place.

It's impossible. They have no way to earn revenue; they have lost all trust. This isn't like BTC-e, where the owners kept the crypto secure and paid out partial refunds fairly quickly. It's expected that --- very occasionally --- a hot wallet might be hacked. Exchanges/services have targets on their back and are constantly being attacked. But Nicehash supposedly kept all their holdings online? I don't believe that for one moment.

It seems doubtful that they were hacked. Such an obvious security lapse is an easy cop-out in an era where beginners are now buying Trezors. They are just putting on a show before they quietly disappear forever. It's a scam. They saw bitcoin going to the moon and probably got greedy.

They will repay noone but when they re back people will still mine with them. It s a perfect crime, you steal what $50-100 per person, nobody s going to hunt you down over that and then come back. That s why this was probably inside job in the first place.

I can bet if they come back withing 48 hours, people will continue using them just because there s nothing else simple enough for people to use.
