“I copied your trades and was very pleased with your brilliant calls,” wrote one of them.

Initially, Mr. Goxx's portfolio was valued at $ 390. According to the latest data, the hamster has earned just over € 98 over its career, and its portfolio has grown by 19.72%.

The authors of the Goxx Capital project said they did not plan to continue it.

Recall that in June 2021, the owner of the hamster built a special cage for him, furnished with optical sensors that are connected to the Arduino Nano controller. That allowed the rodent to "trade" digital assets.

Turning the running wheel, Mr. Gox "selected" a particular cryptocurrency for trading. The program sold a coin when the rodent ran through the left tunnel and bought if it passed through the right one.

At the end of September, the hamster's portfolio overtook Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway in a moment.
