found the following on Bitmain's twitter account: https://twitter.com/BITMAINtech/status/ ... 3842600960

my question is how did they get my particulars? Bitmain selling my info or were they hacked?

80 THs.. 1400watts... highly improbable.

As for Bitmain selling your info, I doubt they would do that, but I would imagine many are capable of getting that info through any boards to which you belong.

If you don't already, I suggest you separate the email address you use to purchase items (miners) from your ebay and both of these from any forums / web sites / new sites to which you belong.

It's sad that one needs a split personality on-line, but better safe....
