Key points from article :
Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes has been convicted of defrauding investors after a months-long landmark trial in California.
Holmes claimed her diagnostics machines could test hundreds of diseases with only a few drops of blood.
Secretly relied on commercially available machines to run the tests.
Theranos, valued at $9bn, was once the darling of biotech and Silicon Valley.
Holmes was able to raise more than $900m from billionaires.
In 2015, a Wall Street Journal investigation reported that its core blood-testing technology did not work.
Jurors found Holmes guilty of conspiracy to commit fraud against investors and three charges of wire fraud.
No date confirmed yet for sentencing and a further hearing scheduled next week.
Theranos officially ceased operations in 2018 following the scandal.
The verdict sends a clear message to Silicon Valley founders - there are consequences when you say things to investors that aren't true.
