The cryptocurrency mining marketplace NiceHash has been hacked, its team said Wednesday.

Posting on social media, NiceHash said that "there has been a security breach involving NiceHash website" resulting in a loss of funds. NiceHash, formed in 2014, serves as a marketplace for miners to rent out their hash rate to others.

The announcement follows an hours-long outage and reports from a multitude of users that their NiceHash-associated wallets had been emptied. NiceHash previously announced that it was "under maintenance," a message that it had posted to its official website as well.

That's a pretty big hit, most likely it will be featured on news and other websites.

I'm sure every single one of these "companies" has a forced agreement clause that completely protects them against having to compensate users for "hacks". As with everything crypto these days, do so "at your own risk".
