Trying To Confront SBF In The Bahamas, Bitboy Says He’s Doing What Nobody Wants To Do
Crypto Twitter, otherwise known as CT, was entertained last weekend by Youtube personality bitboy, otherwise known as Ben Armstrong. The reason Bitboy has been getting so much attention these past few days is that he decided to fly to the Bahamas so he could interview Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF).
It is assumed that SBF is still in the Bahamas, even though the former crypto executive’s purported private jet has flown back and forth from Nassau to Argentina more than eight times since filing for bankruptcy. A few days ago, Bitboy told CT that he was traveling to the Bahamas to do what no one wanted to do, which was to ask SBF about the FTX disaster.
