Crypto Twitter influencers are swarming to the Bahamas in search of Sam Bankman-Fried, the former CEO of the troubled cryptocurrency exchange FTX. Ben Armstrong aka BitBoy Crypto, a popular crypto influencer, has gone to the Bahamas in an effort to have a conversation with Sam Bankman-Fried, the founder and former CEO of FTX.

BitBoy has been tweeting and sharing images of himself camped out in front of Bankman-house Fried’s in the Bahamas for the past few days. The influencer criticized Bankman-Fried after FTX, once the third-largest cryptocurrency exchange in the world, just went under, causing a crypto crash. In the wake of FTX’s bankruptcy, he also blasted the celebrities who pushed the company on social media.

More influencers are en route to see what details they could possibly discover. YouTuber Gabriel Haines raised $10,000 through a successful crowdsourcing campaign to send him and his family to the Bahamas after tweeting several viral rants about the disaster surrounding SBF and FTX.

Since September of last year, the now-bankrupt exchange has had its headquarters in the Bahamas, where it has operated out of a penthouse at the Albany Resort, a gated community on the island of New Providence. The area is currently the focus of impromptu investigations purportedly conducted on behalf of the crypto community.

Bitboy Shifts his Focus to Solana

BitBoy has moved his attention to the Solana project now. This came after he said that Alameda Research was in charge of the Solana blockchain halts and was using them to launder money.

“Every time the Solana blockchain paused… it was actually Alameda Research laundering money and brute forcing transactions. There are other out there receipts. And if you think about it… knowing what we know now, does this surprise, anyone? If you are in $SOL, run for hills,” he had tweeted.
