Crypto trading hamster “Mr. Goxx” (named after the now-defunct Bitcoin exchange Mt Gox) is outperforming many traditional investors and accumulating fans from around the world, the latest being Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who says Mr. Goxx has “mad skillz”.

According to a report by Business Insider, the trading office of Mr. Goxx, the CEO of Goxx Capital, known as “Goxx Box”, which is connected to the hamster’s larger home (and hooked up to a computer), “gives the hamster the ability to perform various exercises that then execute specific cryptocurrency trades”.

Inside this wooden box, there is an “intention wheel”, running on which allows Mr. Goxx to choose which one of around 30 cryptoassets to trade. Once a particular asset has been selected, the hamster then can run through one of two “decision tunnels” to execute either a buy trade or a sell trade of the chosen asset.

According to a report by Protos published on September 10, Germany-based Mr. Goxx “started out with the Euro equivalent of $390 in their exchange account on June 12”.

Based on the latest broadcast from Mr. Goxx’s Twich channel, currently, the hamster’s largest crypto holdings are TRON ($TR), Polkadot ($DOT), Cardano ($ADA), and Ethereum ($ETH).

Two of Mr. Goxx’s most famous fans are Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk and Trevor Noah, the host of Comedy Central “The Daily Show”.

Last Tuesday (September 28), Musk tweeted:

And on the same day, Noah had a segment featuring Mr. Goxx on his show:
