However, while the bitcoin was worth around a record 20,000 US dollars in December 2017, when NiceHash was hacked, its price has dropped to 6,000-7,000 US dollars.
NiceHash was hacked on 6 December (as reported here), but the company was back online two weeks after the attack, pledging to fully reimburse its clients. The reimbursements are being made on a monthly basis.
The police investigation into the cyberattack is still ongoing, the Ljubljana Police Department told the STA.
Such investigations are among the most demanding ones and thus quite lengthy, as hackers are often from abroad and act from different parts of the world, using a number of ways to conceal their identity.
"Information gathering and other activity are still under way and carried out with the help of international legal collaboration," the police said in a press release.
