Cash Crunch and Legal Battles Prompt Closure
In a surprising turn of events, BitBoy bid farewell to his three-year daily crypto show. Revealed on his YouTube channel, BitBoy attributed the decision to financial challenges.
According to him, his financial struggles have been further aggravated by his ongoing legal battles, which have seen him spend considerable time pleading his case in court.
Providing more details, BitBoy revealed that he spends as much as $25,000 weekly to create and publish his daily shows. A further $100,000 is channeled towards covering his legal fees. According to him, he has lost everything.

BitBoy’s legal issues started in mid-2023 when he created his crypto asset, the $BEN coin. Following the launch of the digital asset, the BitBoy Crypto brand did not endorse the idea.
In an announcement on X, BitBoy Crypto’s parent company, BJ Investment Holdings, stated that it would take legal action against Armstrong. Consequently, the crypto influencer was ousted from the entire BitBoy Crypto franchise business.

In response, Armstrong filed a counter-lawsuit, but the tide of events remained irreversible. Since then, the YouTuber has reported an onslaught of legal battles emerging from everyone and everywhere.
“We’re barely making it out here, guys. We’ve got lawyers coming at me from every angle. Everyone I know is coming after me right now,” Armstrong explained in his closing YouTube presentation.
Reminiscing with his 60,000 followers on X, Armstrong said he would likely miss them after his daily show ended.
My daily crypto livestream has been my life.
We had a good run. 3 years. Every Monday through Friday without rare exception.
Holidays. Birthdays. Market crashes. Bull market tops. Epic rants. I was there with you through it all.
I’ll miss you guys.
