Mr Goxx, a cryptocurrency trading hamster whose portfolio outperformed eminent investors like Warren Buffet and Cathie Woods, has died. The insanely popular cutie used to share his investing adventures on Twitch and Twitter.

Mr Goxx broke into the trading world in June 2021, following his owners bet the hamster could invest way smarter than average crypto market players do.

“It seems like most people from our generation see no other chance than throwing a lot of their savings on the crypto market, without having a clue what’s going on there,” the anonymous duo behind Mr Goxx explained back in September. “We were joking about whether my hamster would be able to make smarter investment decisions than we humans do,” they told the BBC.

How did the fluffy make his stock orders? Mr Goxx first ran in his ‘intention wheel’ to choose a token he would invest in today. Then the hamster was offered to pick one of two tunnels to go through, with one corresponding to a purchase and another accounting for sale. Each time he ran through a tunnel, a trade was successfully completed.

The bright and cozy hamster easily got lots of followers on Twitch and Twitter, creating a whole new community around him and his investments. Many people did consider Mr Goxx’s choices, which turned out to be rather rightful, since the cutie showed astounding numbers, having gained around 20% by the time of his tragic death. 

Huge frenzy surrounded Mr Goxx, making him a true crypto super star with his own merchandise, which includes even mouse mats.

The hamster’s owners posted a touchy tweet right after he passed: “You will be missed, and your memory will live forever on the blockchain.” 

We are all shocked by the tragic news and are sending our last goodbyes to the true symbol of the whole crypto trading community, a smart and adorable hamster Mr Goxx. Rest in peace, cutie, you’ll surely be remembered.
