A hamster, named Mr. Goxx, that quickly shot to fame for its skill in crypto trading has tragically died due to unknown causes.

Mr. Goxx’s owner, who is not named, shared the sad news Wednesday in a post on the animal’s twitter account.

‘Mr. Goxx showed no signs of serious illness, besides having some kidney issues as a cause of a professional mite treatment in his early days,’ the tweet reads.

‘While having normal amounts of food until Sunday, he then suddenly refused eating and fell asleep peacefully on Monday morning.’

Mr. Goxx, whose name is really Max, made headlines in September this year when its crypto portfolio went up 24 percent in a day – outpacing the S&P 500 and Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway over the same period.

A hamster, named Mr. Goxx, which shot to fame for its skill in crypto trading has tragically died due to unknown causes. Mr. Goxx, whose name is really Max, made headlines in September this year when its crypto portfolio went up 24 percent in a day

Mr Goxx bought and sold digital currencies from his own office in an undisclosed location in Germany.

The hamster’s owner constructed a ‘trading office’ consisting of an intention wheel and decision tunnels to buy or sell cryptocurrencies – Mr. Goxx began trading in June.

The hamster would first run on the ‘intention wheel’ to pick which one of some 30 digital currencies to trade and after one is selected, the pet would run through a ‘buy’ or ‘sell’ tunnel that triggered a trade movement.

The top cyptocurrencies currently held by the hamster include Tron, Ripple’s XRP, Cardano’s ADA and ether.

‘Mr Goxx is able to buy increments by passing the tunnel multiple times without entering the wheel and there is a 20-second cool down time after triggering,’ the hamster’s owner told Protos in July.

‘There are plans to give Mr. Goxx more control and let him intentionally pick his buy amount if the interest in his channel keeps growing.’ 

Tesla CEO Elon Musk caught wind of the hamster, tweeting in September that Mr. Goxx had ‘mad skillz!!’ 

Prior to his premature death, the hamster was also nearing $110 profit while working on an NFT.
