21-Year-Old Sentenced for 10 Years For Stealing Cryptos

A 21-year-old man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison in the United States to be convicted of stealing cryptocurrency by hacking into cell phones. Joel Ortiz had stolen more than $7.5 million from dozens of victims, with one crypto entrepreneur losing $5.2 million in a matter of minutes. Ortiz was detained at the Los Angeles International Airport last year, and investigators say they have only been able to recover $400,000 of the stolen funds.
