Anyone who has experience with crypto-trading knows that it is a risky investment. Every decision and trade made could either benefit you immensely or cost you all your cash. But who cares about all that when a hamster named Mr. Goxx is better than you at it.
You read that right – a hamster has been trading cryptocurrencies since June 2021, and he’s been doing quite well for himself. According to a graph by Protos, Mr. Goxx has done better than bitcoin and even the S&P 500 since he started his journey this year.
Mr. Goxx has a high-tech little office where his unidentified (and business partner) caretaker livestreams every trading session on Twitch. He selects what he wants to trade from a selection of 30 cryptocurrencies using a hamster wheel, dubbed the “intention wheel.” When he chooses a crypto, Goxx runs through one of two tunnels called “decision tunnels”, either triggering a buy or sell trade of a selected cryptocurrency.
You can see a diagram of Mr. Goxx’s office (known as the “Goxx Box”) below.
Mr. Goxx’s caretaker also records his trades on a twitter account. He currently is still making a profit as of September 30. In fact, he was making a fortune in mid-September, as he sat on $580 worth of assets. It’s gone a bit down since then due to the recent crypto sell-off, but he’s doing well – let’s not forget that the dude’s a freaking hamster. No offense to any aspiring crypto-trading rodents.
Despite the risky nature of crypto-trading, Mr. Goxx does have another line of profit. He also specializes in the selling of NFTs, and has in fact made his first capital increase because of them, according to this tweet he made below.
GREAT news! I have received my first capital increase thanks to NFT sales.
My career performance shows the funds I received in relation to my current portfolio value.
This means that the percentage indicator will drop.
Stakes just got a lot higher 💪

At the end of the day, as long as Mr. Goxx is making a profit, he’d be doing just fine. “Mr. Goxx is happy to see that some of his investments finally pay off,” says his business partner.
