Ben Armstrong, aka BitBoy Crypto, applied for the Director of Strategy and Operations position at Ripple Labs. Is he the supreme leader of the XRP Army?

BitBoy Crypto, one of the most well-known crypto influencers in the industry with over 1 Million YouTube subscribers, shared that he applied at Ripple Labs. The influencer shared a screenshot of his LinkedIn application as a Director of Strategy and Operations for Ripple Labs.

In the tweet, he shared that he is inspired by the current CTO of Ripple Labs- David Schwartz. He thanked Ripple Labs, the CEO of Ripple – Brad Garlinghouse, and the XRP army.

The supreme leader of the XRP army.

Ben claims to be the supreme leader of the XRP army. He even took part in the class action lawsuit by XRP holders against the US SEC. The lawsuit is led by the crypto enthusiast and lawyer John Deaton. He believes that the patience of the XRP army is gonna pay off in moons and Lambos. 

However, Ben’s old video shows that he called the XRP army delusional. He later clarified with a quote tweet that earlier in 2019, he hated XRP. 

BitBoy wants to get out before XRP is declared a security by the SEC?

BitBoy frequently talks about XRP. He called Bitcoin and XRP the greatest network of value in human history. He even claimed that XRP would hit $50. These unrealistic predictions have led the community to criticize him heavily.

The community speculates that BitBoy has got a big bag of XRP. They believe that once he starts shilling a project, starts running away from the project. A Twitter user accuses Ben that he is pumping XRP because he wants to get out before the SEC wins the case and XRP is declared a security.
