    The mystery hacker behind one of the largest crypto heists ever revealed himself Thursday as a New York tech entrepreneur married to a wannabe rapper named Razzlekhan.

    Ilya Lichtenstein admitted to the hack at a hearing in federal court in Washington, D.C., saying that in 2016 he broke into crypto exchange Bitfinex’s network and stole bitcoin that is now worth billions of dollars. He was in court to plead guilty to conspiring to launder money from the heist. What wasn’t expected was the admission he played a critical role in the hack.
