NiceHash has announced its plans to start reimbursing all users that were affected by the security breach that happened on December 6th last year starting this Friday, February 2nd. The NiceHash Repayment Program will initially reimburse 10% of the old balance amount to all users that were impacted by the security breach. NiceHash will continue to periodically repay the remaining amount to all users in the coming months untill the full amount from the old balances is paid back. The old balance will be repaid in Bitcoins (BTC) and not in the fiat value or any other cryptocurrency…
Repayment program for internal wallet users
Users that were registered on the NiceHash platform before December 6, 2017 can log in to their account and can see their old balance tab under the Wallet section on their Dashboard. The old balance shows the total amount of Bitcoins (BTC) that users had on their wallet address prior to the attack. This balance will be fully reimbursed by NiceHash to users current balances, starting with the initial ten percent of the total amount on Friday, February 2, 2018. Registered users should enter the Repayment program by clicking the “Enter repayment program” button on their Dashboard. Users will be notified about all future payments in advance.
Repayment program for external wallet users
Users who were not registered with NiceHash at the time of the attack and were using the NiceHash service with their external wallet address will also be reimbursed in the same way as internal wallet users. External wallet users can go to the following page and enter their external wallet address (that they were using at the time of the attack) to see their old balance. This balance will be fully reimbursed by NiceHash to users external wallet addresses, starting with the initial ten percent of the total amount on Friday, February 2, 2018. Users will also be able to monitor repayment progress on the miner page.
Conditions for payment to external wallet addresses do apply with the Repayment program. When you reach 0.01 BTC you are eligible for payment. NiceHash will include your old balance in this amount. For example, if your old balance (that is going to be reimbursed) is 0.009 BTC, you still have to mine an additional 0.001 BTC to this external wallet address so you reach 0.01 BTC in total. Once the combined balance shows 0.01 BTC, payment will be made to your external wallet address.
