On August 24, Ben Armstrong, also known as BitBoy Crypto, a crypto pundit on YouTube, declared that he had decided to drop his lawsuit against Erling Mengshoel Jr., popularly known as Atozy. YouTube crypto commentator, Ben Armstrong, stated:
“We are going to drop the lawsuit, 100%. I’m sorry this became public. I’m sorry that this has been misconstrued. “
In a 16-minute segment of his daily livestream programme, he added, “I guess I didn’t grasp that my name is now so enormous that if I file a lawsuit, it will be found and made public.” Obviously, I wouldn’t have done it if I had known that this would be made public. Armstrong’s lawsuit was a federal case, and every federal court case is open to the public. The controversy centres on a Mengshoel video titled “This Youtuber Scams His Fans… BitBoy Crypto” that was published in November 2021. Mengshoel accuses Armstrong in the video of being “an awful sleazy dirtbag of a YouTuber,” promoting scam cryptocurrencies and failing to properly disclose sponsored content.
The complaint and jury demand were submitted by Armstrong’s legal representatives on August 12 in Atlanta’s U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia. Armstrong claimed that his main goals in making Mengshoel take down the video or change it to remove untrue information were to protect his reputation. It wasn’t supposed to go this far, he continued, “that was all I wanted.”
Armstrong continued, “He’s the winner, I’m the loser, and I really hope he listens to this.” I’m sorry you had to go through this. Please take down the video, or at the very least, go back and fix the errors so it can still be viewed.
