Genesis Mining Declaration about the Hackers!



Genesis Mining Service Update

Category / Press releasesPublished on 26.07.2017.

We want to keep you updated on the technical difficulties that have interrupted payouts in the last few days. Our team has been working to address every aspect of this problem to restore service, and now we’re able to update you in more detail.

UPDATE:
We’re happy to announce that we’ve been able to resume daily payouts (As of 26th of July). As promised, all missing payouts from the last week will be paid out during the coming days.

On the night of Friday July 21st, we detected an unauthorized intrusion by an attacker. This attacker gained access to a hot wallet and was able to transfer funds which we will reimburse in full. Shortly after the intrusion was detected, our team was able to shut down the attack. We immediately took steps to mitigate the issue, including enhancing our monitoring and detection capabilities, and further hardening our environment. One of those increased security measures was to delay our daily payouts.

We have found no evidence that sensitive end user information, including email addresses, were exposed by this incident. We also do not collect, store or have access to customers’ credit card details. We immediately engaged 3rd party cyber security advisory to investigate the attack, and validate that the measures we took to address this issue – and it’s those security practices that ensure that an issue like this remains isolated and resolvable.

We want to assure you that our mining operation was not affected and is running as normal. Every single one of our customers will receive their missing payouts as soon as we’re sure about the safety and integrity of our payment system. One of the advantages of the daily payout system is that it helps prevent actual losses, even in moments like these that cause delays.

The next payout is being scheduled, and all missing mining profits will be paid out to our users during the coming days. Genesis Mining will cover the full amount, and you will receive all of your payouts. The mining profits will be released gradually with the usual daily payouts, so you will receive two payouts a day instead of the usual single payout per day, until all missing payments are complete. We’re sorry for any delays in ticket responses, and I want to personally assure you that our Customer Service team will respond to each and every concern you have.

We will update you as soon as new information is available.

We’ve been providing daily cryptocurrency payouts for more than three years now and treat these payouts as a promised service for our customers. Your trust and confidence in Genesis Mining is of the utmost importance to us, and we understand the frustration around not receiving those payouts. That’s why our team is working around the clock to resolve the issue and restore payouts, while ensuring something like this doesn’t happen again.

Every person who mines with us helps make what we do possible, and we appreciate your patience with us as we work to ensure security while getting you your hard earned coins.

Sincerely yours,

Marco Streng
CEO Genesis Mining

The week is still young, but new milestones have already been made: the total market cap for all digital currencies has increased by a staggering $10 Billion in one week, now standing at the all time high of $38.1 Billion.

Bitcoin still has a market dominance of 60.1% but sports a new, all-time high of 1458 USD. The recent announcement of the SEC revisiting their decision on the Winklevoss’ ETF, along with Japan’s legalisation of Bitcoin and Russia’s tentative acceptance have all generated excitement in the market. The more world-wide acceptance Bitcoin receives – whether it’s through government announcements or tabloid magazines – the higher the price will rise.

Ethereum is also testing the waters, pushing past an all time high and crowning at 85 USD. This is almost certainly tied to the announcement of the SEC beginning their assessment of the ‘EtherIndex Ether Trust’ – an ETF for Ethereum. Ethereum is meeting some resistance, but should stay well above 75 USD for a few months to come – especially in the wake of the Proof-of-Stake switch, which should arrive at the end of 2017. Proof-of-Stake ensures that you can no longer ‘mine’ coins, only being able to mint new ones through a staking system. Consider it a form of lottery – the more Ethereum you have, the bigger your reward. We’ll post more details about this as soon as they’re available!


The ETF isn’t the only reason for Ethereum’s popularity boost – Spotify announced their acquisition of Mediachain Labs, a project heavily entwined into Ethereum’s ecosystem. Mediachain Labs have been working on an efficient way to store metadata for creative content; Spotify’s acquisition could hint at a new strategic move to ensure that not only do they step into the Ethereum ecosystem ahead of time, but begin experimentation with the blockchain before their competitors. A smart move for the savvy investor, and an even smarter move for the media conglomerate.

Bitcoin'de binlerce dolarlık dalgalanma olabilir | A Haberin Bilgilendirmesidir


Bitcoin'de binlerce dolarlık dalgalanma olabilir
EKONOMİ
Giriş Tarihi: 06.07.2017 16:19



Yatırım ve finansal analiz şirketlerine göre şifreli dijital para bitcoin'in değeri önce 1.800 dolara düşecek, sonra da 5 bin dolar seviyesine fırlayacak


Şu sıralar yaklaşık 2 bin 600 dolardan alıcı bulan bitcoin'i önümüzdeki günlerde dalgalı bir değerleme bekliyor. Son bir yıl içinde yüzde 290 değer kazanan bitcoin, yatırımcıların gözdesi hâlini alırken, bilinirliğini de ciddi ölçüde artırdı.

YÜKSELMESİ ZAMAN ALABİLİR

Bankacılık devi Goldman Sachs'a göre, şifreli dijital para birimi, önce bir düşüş yaşayacak. Değerinin 1.857 dolara düşeceğini tahmin eden Sachs, daha sonra 3.212 ile 3.915 dolar arası bir değere geri döneceğini düşünüyor. Bu durumda, yatırım yapanlar yüzde 110 kazanç elde edebilecekler. Ancak bu yükseliş için biraz sabırlı olmak gerektiği de belirtiliyor.

Ancak Mark Cuban gibi bazı yatırımcılar da haziran ortasında 3 bin doları gören bitcoin için temkinli olmanın faydalı olacağını vurguluyorlar. Bu konuda biraz daha yüksek bir noktayı işaret eden Standpoint Research, bitcoin'in bir yıl içinde 5 bin doları göreceğini düşünüyor. Şirketin analisti Ronnie Moas'a göre, birkaç ay içerisinde kısa süreli bir sıçrayış da yaşanabilir.

Şifreli dijital para birimi talep gördükçe değeri de dalgalanıyor. Bunun sebebi, dünya üzerinde sadece 21 milyon adet bitcoin bulunabilmesi. Herhangi bir merkez bankasına bağlı olmayan ve matematiksel algoritmalar sonucu ortaya çıkartılabilen bitcoin, yatırım yapmak isteyenlerin de dikkatini çekiyor.



ÇİN DENGELERİ DEĞİŞTİRDİ

Şifreli dijital para biriminin Çin'de alım satımının serbest bırakılması, değerinde ciddi değişikliklere sebep olurken, Çinliler de hızla değeri değişebilen bitcoin'i sevdiler. Ülke başlardaki bir yasaklayan bir serbest bırakan tutumunu da serbest bırakma yönünde değiştirince, çok sayıda yatırımcı bitcoin'e hücum etti.

Bundan birkaç gün öncesinde de Çin'deki üç büyük bitcoin borsası, para biriminin hesaplardan çekilmesini yeniden olanaklı hâle getirince, para biriminin kısa düşüşü de son buldu.

Adı her ne kadar yasa dışı aktivitelerle anılsa da, değeri tam olarak neye bağlı olduğu belli olmaksızın değişse de, Moas'a göre, önümüzdeki bir yıl içerisinde bitcoin'e olan talep daha da artacak. Üstelik Moas, bitcoin'i şişirilmiş bir balon olarak da görmüyor
