Nicehash outage

in nicehash •  last month

No one is really talking about it yet. But rumors at around 4am pst on the nicehash discord are stating Nicehash may have been hacked and the internal wallets being emptied. as well, payout amounts are being set to zero.

So far there is no actual evidence, just hearsay and people reacting to an outage with money involved.
Here is hoping that the rumor is untrue, at the moment the team is silent except for the twitter account which has posted twice saying its "maintenance"ePnJvJXe_400x400.jpg
Two days with downtime can be a frustrating thing, especially with little communication and without knowing up front when "maintenance" will occur.

Sounds like there's a good chance they've been hacked.

how do people track or sort this type of data?

in simple terms every transaction done with bitcoin is public, the only thing that isnt public is the name of the person who owns that specific wallet. so everything is able to be traced but also not traced, if that makes sense.
at least this is how I understand it

Yeah, it's official now. They're finally admitting it: https://www.facebook.com/NiceHash/posts/2012613285624474
