It’s been 16 days since FTX filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the US, and former FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried ( SBF ) is still hunkered down at a seaside resort in the Bahamas. This weekend, a Youtuber known as Bitboy decided to fly to Nassau to question SBF about the collapse of FTX, and crypto supporters on social media have been following with interest Bitboy’s search for SBF on the island.
While trying to meet SBF in the Bahamas, Bitboy says he’s doing what no one wants to do.
Crypto Twitter, otherwise known as CT, was poked fun at by a Youtube personality this past weekend Bitboy, otherwise known as Ben Armstrong. The reason Bitboy has gotten so much attention in the last few days is because Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF) decided to fly to the Bahamas for questioning.
SBF is believed to still be in the Bahamas, although the former cryptocurrency chief’s private jet has been making eight round trips from Nassau to Argentina since the bankruptcy filing. A few days ago, Bitboy told CT he was going to the Bahamas to do what no one wants to do, which is questioning SBF about the FTX debacle.

Furthermore, they certainly do not believe in the efforts of the media, as news outlets such as the New York Times (NYT), Wall Street Journal (WSJ), Forbes, and the Washington Post are accused of protecting the SBF’s image and “printing good stories.” ” about FTX and Alameda executives.
NO ONE ELSE IS TRYING TO GET THE TRUTH HERE
Only in us.
People fear for my safety. I’m eating Tuna Steak lol. I’m fine. You guys have no idea. It’s not what you think. It is not dangerous here. In fact, it’s super welcoming.
