Ben Armstrong Responds

In response to the announcement, Ben Armstrong reportedly tweeted through the BenCoin Twitter account, saying:

This is Ben. TJ Shedd & Justin Williams have attempted a coup at my company. Just confirming what is going around. It’s true. There has been a mutiny at BitBoy Crypto & Hit Network. But it won’t work. They have no leverage. Until they can clone me, I have nothing to worry about.
