When NiceHash will return the money
The investigation of the embezzlement is still ongoing, and the hackers were never found. According to the representative of NiceHash, the coins were stolen due to weak security of the resource, which has since changed significantly.
In the coming months, affected users will receive the remaining money. Those who still have not applied for the payment, should immediately contact the administration service.
The company is beginning to return funds to customers at the end of January and the first two months of returned users, only 10 percent of the amount stolen. The average NiceHash returns of 10 percent every two months. This means that all funds will be compensated only by the end of 2018. However, this will only be the case if all will go smoothly.
