Maksim Boiko - Cryptothief Rapper

The US arrested Russian Maksim Boiko for money laundering. His Instagram that promoted his rap career is now evidence. Boiko laundered money using cryptocurrencies, conspiring with transnational organized crime organization QQAAZZ.
While he was carrying out the scheme, Boiko was chronicling his rapper lifestyle on his Instagram account under the handle @plinofficial.

Boiko's money-laundering outfit operated by opening bank accounts and accepting wired money stolen by cyber criminals.The criminals then cashed the money out of the bank accounts. He also transferred “criminally-derived funds from fiat currency into electronic currency, such as Bitcoin."
