    Default NiceHash has been hacked - Any suggestions for a easy to use mining pool?

    NiceHash has been a very user friendly platform for those with a PC that want to mine cryptocurrencies and be repaid with bitcoin. Long story short the official line is that they have been hacked, and the damage is still being assessed.

    The crypto-sphere has been bit of a Wild West - with multi-level marketing schemes hurting the newbies and desperate, NiceHash going down is not welcomed. If they don't come back, I would have lost about £100, and truth be known that is money that is very much needed.

    I am for now slowly chipping away on Minergate mining Ethereum, but their fees are just a bit too extortionate for the long term. So if anyone here mines and wants to recommend their pool, let's hear it. Thanks.
    Fight for your health.

    Hey all. The plan is that NiceHash comes back online 20 December, which is today. I have tried loading up the miner app, which loaded up but would not mine yet. It's looking hopeful that they'll be back, IMO, which is good because I have been so very cold.

    HOWEVER. Their site also caters for an Asian language so presumably, there could be a sizeable Asian contingent that has so far not been represented in their official videos and press release.

    Then there is of course the question of whether they can withstand another hack. It's a bothering thought.

    I sold all of my bitcoins once they spiked at around the 8-9k mark. Treated myself to a free Audi and holiday.

    Admiral, when I first saw your message I thought, "oh, poor bloke, why rush in to cash out when there is still meat on that bitcoin bone? Holidays and cars are nice but still...."

    Then the cogs in my head slowly turned and I was like, "hey, may be I should cash out too and get that motorcycle that I had wanted for so long, and that trip abroad that I have been planning?"

    Thanks for the idea! My parents have brought me up to be super traditional and keep to the very straight and very narrow (yeah, what am I doing here???), so thanks again for the heads up. I might follow your footsteps on this one.

    In other news, NiceHash is almost fully back online, I have been able to mine again and finally my "fan heaters" are going again. Fees that were meant to have been paid out from before the hack is nowhere to be seen YET, but one can hope/dream.

    Also, looks like bitcoin is going through an adjustment again so let's see how this pans out.
