BitBoy isn’t just raging for no reason either.
Ben Armstrong is furious that FTX CEOBank-man Fried is pushing for crypto regulation and even calling for some cryptocurrencies that don’t abide by these regulations to be delisted from FTX and other exchanges.
Ethereum World News had these details to report:
Crypto influencer Ben Armstrong, better known as BitBoy on social media, has accused Sam Bankman-Fried and Brian Armstrong, CEOs of FTX and Coinbase respectively, of trying to “permanently ruin” crypto.
The source of these controversial statements can be traced back to the comments section of Sam Bankman-Fried’s proposal for crypto regulation. On 20 October, the FTX chief tweeted his thoughts on crypto regulation and attached possible policy standard for the industry. This regulatory policy had language which suggested that crypto assets deemed as securities would face delisting from FTX. The policy recommended that OFAC sanctions be respected. This likely didn’t sit well with the community, which is already upset over the Tornado Cash sanction by OFAC. Bankman-Fried also suggested that bug bounties be capped at 5%.
BitBoy responded to this proposal by calling the FTX CEO a liar and accusing him of pumping Solana. This prompted the response of Ryan Adam, the man behind the blockchain newsletter Bankless, who called out BitBoy for not being a representative of the crypto community.
BB is now 100% the AJ of crypto. And I like it. https://t.co/B3VY3Qz7lB

BitBoy did channel his inner Alex Jones and is calling out the guys in the suits.
It doesn’t;t end there though.
BitBoy would then call out Venture Capitalist for pumping Solana:
It’s amazing to me that literally anyone who has been in this space for more than 2 years, knows that #Solana was pumped from the inside with VC money. No one questions this.
Ya’ll know the ringleader. And now this guy is trying to tell what should and should not be allowed lmao

BitBoy wants to drain the swamp of crypto but will his rants turn into action by the crypto community?
That’s still to be seen.
