Cloud mining service Nicehash returned 60% of the bitcoins stolen as a result of the platform hacking in December 2017. This is reported by Bitcoin.com.
After hacking, the company lost 4700 BTC, but immediately announced that it would return all stolen funds to customers, and gradually fulfills its promise. As part of this process, Nicehash charges a portion of the stolen coins monthly.
Law enforcement authorities meanwhile continue to investigate the incident. Representatives of the local police emphasize that such incidents are always very complex and take a lot of time. Typically, hackers are abroad and operate from different parts of the world, and also resort to various tricks to hide their identity and location.
Recall that the hacking of the cloud-based mining service occurred on December 6, 2017. At the time of the theft, the value of assets reached $ 65 million.
