INTERWEBS — The crytocurrency mining marketplace NiceHash has been hacked — for around $62 million in Bitcoin.
After multiple reports of users complaining about emptied NiceHash wallets and a 12-hour service outage for ‘maintenance,’ NiceHash was nice enough to announce that there had “been a security breach involving NiceHash website.”
The company didn’t disclose how much was stolen, however a wallet address passed around by NiceHash users suggest as many as 4,736.42 BTC were jacked, according to CoinDesk.
The NiceHash team urged users to change all their passwords. What great advice.
NiceHash is currently working with authorities, but the chance people who lost money will get any of it back are slim to none. Shout out to Mt. Gox!
NiceHash was started in 2014 as a marketplace for miners to rent out their hash rate to others.
The market cap for BitCoin is currently worth over $225 billion. The cryptocurrency’s price has been skyrocketing all year, with the price currently sitting around $14,300.
