A crypto-trading hamster, Mr. Goxx, who famously outperformed big-name investors like Warren Buffett, has died. The hamster’s German owners shared the sad news of his demise on Twitch and Twitter, telling fans and followers that the furry trader “fell asleep peacefully on Monday morning”.
We feared this day like no other and are truly shocked for it to happen just now.
In deep sorrow, we have to announce the loss of our beloved furry friend.

Mr. Goxx started trading in June 2021 after his owners jokingly said that he could make some smart investment moves and decisions than the average crypto punter.
Goxx Capital was launched and the hamster got his trading office, complete with furniture.
To pick what crypto he would trade, this rodent ran in his ‘intention wheel’. Then, he would run through one of the two tunnels. One of the tunnels was labeled ‘buy’ while the other one was labeled ‘sell’. Every time he decided to run through a tunnel, a trade was completed.Buy Crypto Now
After a significantly rocky start, he managed to post impressive numbers and was up by around 20% when his career was cut tragically short.
By using his talents, the hamster gained a cult following, with thousands tuning in to watch his exploits on Twitch. Others followed his trades on Twitter, and his trading activities gained him a shout-out on The Daily Show.
Always being an entrepreneur, he managed to parlay his fame into profit, selling merchandise, including mouse mats.
Through their heartfelt message on his passing, Mr. Goxx’s owners stated:
“You will be missed, and your memory will live forever on the blockchain.”
