The hamster's financial career and social media fame were born of a joke between two men in their 30s from Germany who wanted to prove the randomness of success in the digital currency industry.

...It seems like most people from our generation see no other chance than throwing a lot of their savings on the crypto market, without having a clue what's going on there,... the men told BBC.

...We were joking about whether my hamster would be able to make smarter investment decisions than we humans do....

Mr Goxx would famously make his decisions by running on his “intention wheel” and triggering trading sessions.

The tiny trader started his financial career on June 12, and as of September 27, his career performance was up 19.41%.
