BitBoy’s statement comes when XRP has been facing significant challenges. The digital asset has been embroiled in a legal battle with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) over whether it should be classified as a security. The outcome of this legal battle could have significant implications for the future of XRP and the cryptocurrency industry as a whole.

Additionally, XRP has been delisted from several major cryptocurrency exchanges, including Coinbase, due to the legal uncertainty surrounding the digital asset.
Despite these challenges, BitBoy remains optimistic about the future of XRP. He believes that the digital asset has strong fundamentals and that it will eventually rebound from its current setbacks. He also stated that he would continue to represent the XRP Army and support the digital asset, even in the face of criticism.
BitBoy Calls For SEC Chair Removal
It bears mentioning that Armstrong has also publicly called for the removal of Gensler. Following the collapse of FTX, Armstrong asserts that the SEC boss needs to be removed for meeting and planning regulation with the exchange’s founder Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF), who he described as the biggest scammer in history.
“I think they just have to get Gary Gensler out. I think Gensler has to go. He’s got to go by the end of January. I don’t see how he survives. You cannot meet regularly and try to plan regulation with the biggest scammer in history [SBF],” he remarked.
