DENVER, Dec. 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Teraport Mining announced that it will allow its excess hashing power to be used to mine for those that either lost their purchasing deposit or mining earnings as a result of the NiceHash hack last week. The recent hack of over 4,700 BTC has left many miners and buyers with costs associated with working with NiceHash and no announced plan as of the time of this release to help them to recoup even a portion of their funds. This latest negative event comes as the cryptocurrency world readies itself for its most mainstream opportunity to date as trading of the first U.S. Bitcoin futures began at 6 p.m. ET Sunday Dec. 10 on an exchange run by CBOE Global Markets Inc., while the CME Group Inc. plans to introduce its own Bitcoin futures within the next two weeks.
"We are hoping that our commitment of up to 800mh/s per day until the end of the year and at no cost to any user will help to alleviate some of the frustration surrounding this event," said Jenn Baldwin, Vice President of Sales of Teraport Mining. "We know that we cannot make everyone who was impacted by this whole again, but in weighing our options to assist we felt it was better to try to do something versus no action at all." Anyone impacted is asked to visit teraportmining.com/nh-miners and fill out a quick online form that will help the company allocate and deploy their excess hashing power in the most effective manner.
"Many cryptocurrency miners and buyers from across the globe have been damaged by this theft," said Steven Austine, Founder of Teraport Mining. "We want to do whatever we can to assist those that are a part of this incredible trust-based mining community. We also want to reiterate our call to our fellow cryptocurrency and blockchain business leaders to keep the lines of communication open as we jointly look to guide this burgeoning sector."
