hello!

i live in Slovenia and i have just heard news about a attack on a Slovenian company called NiceHash. NiceHash is like a market where you offer your computer power which is used to mine bitcoin by other people. the police say they are still investegating, but were unable to reach either of the CEO's... will this attack have an effect on the bitcoin community?

Maybe only for NiceHash, this is a problem with their security, it's also 0.03% of their capitalization, so I do not think that this will affect them somehow,and for community.

Since bitcoin is decentralized and unrediscovered, it is easy to steal, which is why many countries are wary of bitcoin.

It's been all over the news, even mainstream news outlets are reporting on it.
I wonder how they got hacked, I would assume they have the majority their coins secured in cold storage, so I wonder if this could have been an inside job.

If anyone how many coins they had in total, that would be some interesting information...

the son of Martin Škorjanec graduated on cryptocurrencies but that is not yet confirmed... but considering both of the CEO's are not available i think it could have been an inside job
