Followed by the NiceHash hacking incident, founder Marko Kobal resigned as CEO
In early December, the crypto-currency mining site NiceHash uncovered hacking incidents, resulting in the theft of bitcoin, worth nearly 64 million U.S. dollars, and the closure of its website for 24 hours. The site allows users to exploit their idle GPU computing resources to mine cryptocurrencies, but this attack disrupts their payment system and empties its Bitcoin wallet. Although the founders apologized live on Facebook the next day, it obviously did not quell public outrage. The latest news is that thanks to Marko Kobal’s trust in everyone, NiceHash has appointed a new CEO.
Kobal once made a statement on LinkedIn, saying the company is struggling to recover while disclosing that the company can continue to operate under the leadership of the new management.
According to Slovenia’s Delo newspaper, Zdravko Poljašević will succeed the chief executive officer. Matjaž Škorjanc, who co-founded NiceHash with Kobal, will continue to serve as Chief Technology Officer (CTO).
