This is still unconfirmed as such if it's a insider job or is it actually being hacked . It's though very sad beacuse people have lost their hard earned Btc and whose value today is at its high. Just think if it's their own created scam and they do hold the btc themselves and now they are billionaires. Thing should be sorted out quickly and people should get back their Btc.

I'am not an expert, but seems like 4700 BTC it's not a huge amount for a company the size of nicehash

Anyone knows how much BTC was nicehash generating daily?

that is a huge amount for anyone, 62 million dollars is just an amount that i will never be able to count, and probably none of us.

But yes, a lot of other mining companies are making about $50,000 a day worth of bitcoins, and they are earning much more from the fees that they get from the miners.

i am surprised because the hacker hasn't dumped those bitcoins yet, i do not know why.. maybe it was a gift just for the whole community to keep the price on the same levels, lol.

This news real confirmed by NiceHash as well it is trending nowadays on various media platforms, decentralized wallet are not at all safe.
We all should get alert for our funds right away with this news...The best place to keep your BTC is private key wallets like bitcoin core or mycelium etc or hardware wallets like trezors etc.
I am buying a trezor right away to keep my funds safe and secure.

It looks really suspicious that Nicehash was "hacked" when Bitcoin price going up crazy. Inside job, or what? Why they did kept so many Bitcoins in hot wallet? I'm not familiar with specifics of mining pools, maybe they can't store bitcoins in cold wallet? If yes, how about other mining pools, do they also use hot wallets to store all funds? Now I would feel very unsafe to keep bigger amounts of btc on such mining pools.
Sorry for all these people who lost their btc...

Another reason not to store your money on services that you have no control over. Nothing is more safe than when it's with you, when you're responsible. If anything, use a service that is insured.

I'am not an expert, but seems like 4700 BTC it's not a huge amount for a company the size of nicehash

Anyone knows how much BTC was nicehash generating daily?


It's actually quite a lot. Besides this, why would they hold any more in one address? I would keep max 1000 BTC in a hot wallet, the rest would be liquidated, or in cold storage.

Nice Hash can't run away - their service is really awesome  Grin

I hear a rumor it's an inside job, but I'm not sure. I agree with you, Nicehash has many benefits to miners, especially their auto-switch miner. And yeah, its a massive amount of money that Nicehash lost.

at the first time i read this news i'm not really sure if they have been hacked, ,moreover as we all know the price of bitcoin is very high about 15000 usd , may be they want to run all investors money and make a scenario that they have been hacked

Terrible things happen in crypto and this is one of them. Nobody knows whether it was actually hacked or whether Nicehash's intentions went bad. It will remain a mystery. It sure is a huge amount and the sad thing is nothing can be done about it.

All evidence is pointing so , Matjaz Skonjanc was behind the Nicehash team and he was working for them. He was arrested a few years ago for the Mariposa botnet who stole 12 million of dollars from many computers worldwide back at that time. I wouldn't be surprised if he did this again to Nicehash, you steal once you steal always it is the saying. For those who don't know is the guy to the right from the livestream of Nicehash.

Is this true ?
I believed it is high time programmers should look into blockchain technology with a view of tracking or tracing those stolen bitcoin by hackers, this will go a long way in completely discouraging or eliminating the stealing of coins, it is very obvious that an insider must be linked to the stolen $62 million of NiceHash this increasing daily cases of stolen bitcoin will also discourage potential investors and could mar the future of bitcoin.
