Mr. Goxx, the hamster that was famous for trading cryptocurrencies, has died.
Mr. Goxx had a strong performance since he began trading in June.
The last trade Mr. Goxx did was the sale of more than 3,000 tron token.
The death of Mr. Goxx, a trading hamster that had outperformed the S&P 500 since he began in June, has left the community in mourning.
Mr. Goxx has brought joy to people all over the world and reminded them not to take life too seriously, said his caretakers on Wednesday. Mr. Goxx fell asleep peacefully on Monday morning, despite the fact that he showed no signs of serious illness.
The internet was fascinated by Mr. Goxx's hamster trading office, which consisted of a wheel of intention, buy and sell decision tunnels, and various sensors and cameras.
The S&P 500's return over the same time period was 10.9%, but Mr. Goxx's career performance was nearly double that.
The last trade the hamster did was selling 3,229.4 tron token on November 20th, which was timely since the tron token plunged in value this week after eToro said it would delist it from its platform for US investors.
The top three holdings in Mr. Goxx's portfolio were stellar, ether, and chiliz.
The sale of Goxx Capital- themed NFTs was able to raise more than $12,000 because of the success of Mr. Goxx. According to an October interview with Insider, the proceeds funded a bigger trading portfolio for the hamster and the construction of a better trading rig.
The idea of continuing the project with a new pet is not relevant to the caretakers as they mourn the loss of Mr. Goxx.
Max, thank you and rest in peace. Mr. Goxx. "You will be missed, and your memory will live on the block chain," the caretakers said.
Rest easy Mr. Goxx.
