Sam Bankman-Fried, CEO of crypto exchange FTX, has been arrested in the Bahamas and will be extradited to the US, possibly to face a 10- to 20-year sentence. A spokesperson for the Southern District of New York has confirmed there is an ongoing investigation into SBF’s activities related to his involvement in the 2019 BitMEX crypto manipulation case. BitBoy Crypto, an influencer known for his videos on cryptocurrency, had previously organised protests to pressure the Bahamian government to arrest SBF. BitBoy has suggested there may be further steps taken by him or FTX to help pay back customers.
Welcome to BitBoy Crypto!
My name is Ben. And, guys, your long national, some may say international, nightmare is over. That’s right, guys. For the first time, in months, we can sleep all through the night, sleep peacefully and comfortably, knowing Sam Bankman-Fried has been officially arrested in the Bahamas.
Arrested Under the Power of the United States
Now, he hasn’t just been arrested in the Bahamas. He’s also under– that was done by the power of the United States Southern District of New York, I believe. So he’s getting extradited to the United States. I told you guys the next time he comes over, sets foot here,
He would be doing 10 to 20. It may be more from what I’m hearing. But, guys, this has been a very interesting, interesting turn of events here. A lot of people know we’ve been organizing protests to go down and pressure the Bahama government, Bahamian government, to arrest Sam.
A Possible Connection
And I just went on Alex Jones’ show. I was on InfoWars today and also the War Room. And we said that this was coming pretty soon. So I’m not saying that I had anything to do with it. But I am saying it’s a big show.
I wonder if they started feeling the pressure because we were coming down there sooner than people think. We’re doing a little smoke and mirrors. (Alright. We’re going to start boarding) (If there’s any passenger that needs) Only 30 people on the plane. Thank you. Thank you. So, anyways, the point here is that there’s still some unfinished business here between Sam and myself. FTX and myself. There are some more steps that we are potentially looking at taking that are going to help out some FTX users. (Any active-duty military,)
A Big Day
I’m not active-duty. And also, potentially, saving more money from some different sources that can actually go back to pay customers back. So I just want to make this video. It’s not going to be too long.
But this is a big day, guys. I mean, at the end of the day, certainly, I was hoping we’d go down there and protest and he gets arrested because of that. But what’s the goal? The goal is SBF arrested. Tonight, he is in custody.
And I know a little bit more about what happened here. Who pulled the trigger on this? (boarding announcement) People are going to flip (boarding announcement) when they find out who pulled the trigger on this. It is going to be really cool. Because this is a person who you wouldn’t expect.
It’s not me. It’s not me. Maybe it’ll come back to me. We’ll see. But it’s exciting when a plan comes together. And I told everybody all the time (boarding announcement) he was always going to get arrested. He was always going to get arrested because he gave political contributions to politicians,
Took pictures with them, then was a scammer, and now they’re embarrassed. The one thing you don’t do in the world of politics if you’re trying to grease hands is you don’t bite the hand that feeds you. And in this situation, he has embarrassed a lot of people.
A Slithery Snake Arrested
And it’s only going to be a matter of time before, you know, his chickens come home to roost here. Can I just make a– can I just make a video? It’s not that hard. So, anyways, the idea is he is arrested. He is under custody, in control right now. He’s not going to testify at the hearing tomorrow, obviously, because he’s under arrest. And I don’t think that was an accident.
I think that was on purpose. The timing. Not from his side but from the other side of the person who did this. I think it’s going to come out that they knew he wasn’t going to testify, and so they went and pulled this trigger.
And this is a big day, guys. We’ve been fighting against Sam for a long time now. And, you know, it’s– look. I didn’t get him arrested. But what I’ll tell you is it’s nice to see this slithery snake arrested. I’m going to sleep very well tonight. That’s all I got.
Be blessed. BitBoy out.
