I stored 0.0154 BTC in my blockchain for mining purposes and next morning I found my balance to be 000, what does that mean? Are my coins lost or stored somewhere else?
I STORED 0.0154 BTC IN MY BLOCKCHAIN WALLET FOR MINING PURPOSE
Mining bitcoin does not require putting bitcoin into a wallet you own.
Asking people to link their wallets to a miner is a favourite trick of conmen / scammers.

If someone else knows the password to your online wallet, they can extract from it the "private key" which gives control over any bitcoin already sent to addresses in that wallet as well as any future amounts sent to addresses in that wallet (even after you change wallet passwords).
It is likely you are the victim of a conman and your money has been stolen.
