They have a few options available.
1. closed down or just leave the site as seems to be the case.
2. start a fresh.
3. if they had a back up of balances give everyone a percentage share of what is left.

hindsight is a wonderful thing i know but why on earth were back-up of balances ect not made on an hourly basis ?
I feel for everyone. I was one of the ones who lost a lot of BTC's to mybitcoin.com & now this.
I'm gutted.
Now i will make multiple backup copies of my wallets and store them off line.

Update: I'm now unable to login at all now.

I still have a small balance at 50BTC that I want refunding and I'm sure that I'm not the only one. Anybody interested in a group legal action against the owners  as they must have some assets that can be seized ?

I feel sorry that they've been the victims of crime, although we only have their word for that, but they should have carried insurance to cover that eventuality.

I have 91btc tied up with 50BTC! No response from their support as of yet either. I requested the withdrawal over 2 weeks ago now...

Did anybody already found out who the owner of 50btc.com is? All I know is he transferred 45000 BTC from the 50btc cold wallet to some other address in March this year. I hope for him, he did not sell these in March, before the peak, but transferred it to another address also belonging to him.

Hello,

i'm reading since years here and have mined since years on the 50btc pool (other pools also).

Now after they got hacked there are many rumors about what really happened.

De facto:
- Paymants are not processed since weeks
- Mined BTCs are not available
- Support is not responding (not in their Support-System or by E-Mail)
- No Informations

It's really a pitty what happened but, is that the new way to handle with users or miners? I don't think so.

I wanted to pay out 71 BTC (roundabout 8 BTC were already stolen). Now i want to save my funds, but there is no possibility to do this.


And i will also support legal actions. Now since bitcoin rised its really hard to get secure from hackers, scammers and phising sites. But really, what 50btc is doing, is not okay for "customers".

Sorry for my bad english, but i'm not a native speaker, i learned it in school..... 8 years ago   Wink

Kindly

Mey

Correct. But Whois services are not anonymous. If you write them an email informing them of interest of filing a lawsuit against the owner, most of the times they hand out the ownership information. I have done it many times successfully. Its hidden, but not anonymous by any means.

That's useful to known.
Nothing like this has ever gone to court in my knowledge.
Not that I'm a lawyer.

I think its not necessary to go to any court, but the owners have to tell us what is going on. Since 1 Week no Replys from support. Alkl Transactions are freezed, Shop is still open, no informations since 28.10.2013... It's not good to handly this way... normally i think we can talk to each other

Well, It's been only a couple of weeks since their post on the site. It is possible that they are re-coding parts of the site and froze all transactions. Stuff like that takes a lot of time.... but they are avoiding getting back to anyone so they could have just robbed everyone and peaced out lol. There goes 55 bitcoins :/

From most of the posts here it looks like inputs.io is smaller in amount compared to 50btc.com yet the posts to inputs.io seem much harsher.... and TF was responding and communicating...

Just an observation...

Most of us learnt the hard way from previous pools going bust never to keep any sizeable amount on pools and to withdraw often, while there are some people with very large amounts outstanding I expect the bulk are like me with minor amounts not worth getting upset over

Inputs.io on the other hand promised the world including safe online storage as coins would be kept in a cold wallet immune from hacking, the reality was they weren't so what people perceived as safe wasn't hence the anger (I had nothing on inputs.io btw).

Just my observation Smiley

But this is a very different case. You can't compare 24 BTC with 50BTC. 24 BTC were closed down by law, not by hackers. An they were Responding. 50 BTC is not responding or doing anything.

But you gave me a bit hope, that everything will get fine.
