RIP Mr. Goxx: Cryptocurrency trading HAMSTER DIES of unknown causes

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.

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.
