Get your money off exchanges' warns Bitboy Crypto after FTX scandal | The Crypto Mile

On this week's episode of The Crypto Mile our host Brian McGleenon again meets Ben Armstrong, aka BitBoy Crypto. This time the discussion focuses on the decimated crypto landscape in the wake of the FTX collapse.

The influential YouTuber warns investors that now is the time to "get your money off exchanges, there's no question about that".

In October The Crypto Mile interviewed Ben about XRP and the state of crypto amidst stern macroeconomic headwinds.

It wasn't long after this episode that he declared that FTX founder Sam Bankman Fried does not have the best interests of crypto at heart. He was vilified for his outspoken views.

Now that the true nature of Bankman Fried's Bahamian crypto-regime has been exposed and the corpse of the FTX exchange is being inspected at a bankruptcy court in Delaware, we decided to check in again with Ben to get his latest thoughts.
