Lately we have noticed several malicious phishing sites where you can download “NiceHash Miner”, which in fact can be a virus. We have only one official website to download the software to start mining.
Also, staff recommends to be careful and always check the address of websites. For reminders, they published an image with the correct URL.
Fraud in the cryptocurrency — not uncommon. For example, in early November, the developers Cryptoshuffler stole 160 thousand dollars on a conventional substitution address. Be careful not to fall for the tricks of scammers.
