In an unexpected turn of events, BitBoy clinched a win in a combat sports event against a fellow crypto influencer. This victory comes at a crucial time for Armstrong, who has been embroiled in various controversies, including a public arrest and disputes over his personal conduct​​​​​​​​​​​​.

Bitboy’s Fight Night Victory 

The fight between Armstrong and the memecoin developer known as “More Light” occurred during a crypto influencer fight night organized by Karate Combat in Mexico on February 24. The event garnered significant attention due to the unique nature of the participants and the volatile impact it had on their associated memecoins, namely Ben (BEN) and HarryPotterObamaSonic10Inu (BITCOIN), which experienced dramatic price fluctuations before and after the match.

Armstrong was the victor of the bout, which led to a surge in the price of the BEN memecoin following his win. Conversely, the price of More Light’s token experienced a significant drop immediately after the match but later rebounded.

Armstrong’s recent fight win was a positive moment amid a series of recent controversies. These all started when he was ousted from the BitBoy Crypto brand he created. The separation was due to allegations of substance abuse and financial mismanagement, contributing to a tarnished reputation and loss of control over a brand closely associated with his identity​​.

His credibility was further questioned following his decision to sell all his BEN tokens despite previously committing to locking them up for six months. This move was criticized by the community and seen as a breach of trust, leading to doubts about his integrity​​.

One of the most dramatic moments in Armstrong’s recent history was his arrest during a live stream over a dispute related to his Lamborghini. This incident led to public embarrassment and raised questions about his personal and professional conduct​​.

On the Flipside

  • Despite his controversies, Armstrong gathered a dedicated following, many of whom supported him even after his fall from public grace. 
  • Armstrong was among the few people who went to the Bahamas to find Sam Bankman-Fried after the FTX collapse. 

Why This Matters

Armstrong’s legal battles, separation from his brand, and questionable financial moves serve as a cautionary tale about the risks associated with influencer-driven investment advice.
