Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, has taken notice of Mr. Goxx, a crypto-trading hamster from Germany.
In reaction to a BBC piece shared by Dogecoin co-founder Billy Markus, the charismatic centibillionaire hailed the mouse for having “crazy skillz” in a recent tweet.
The hamster, named after the now-defunct Mt. Gox bitcoin exchange, has made headlines around the world after outperforming Warren Buffett, the S&P 500, and even Ark’s Cathie Wood.
Mr. Goxx began trading cryptocurrency in early June with a Stellar Lumens buy order (XLM). On September 17, his career performance achieved a new high of 42 percent, with unrealized earnings of 136 euros.
The hamster has his own “Goxx Box,” where he can conduct business at any time. With the help of the “intention wheel,” he selects the cryptocurrency list. After then, the hamster must race through one of two “decision tunnels” to decide whether he wants to be on the buy or sell side of the trade.
On Twitch, all trading sessions are live-streamed. One of Mr. Goxx’s most profitable trades was Dogecoin. He bought the meme coin in July and sold it in September for a 46 percent profit. The hamster’s human caregiver’s true identity is unclear.
