'Rest in Gains'
On Twitter, those running Mr Goxx's account announced the news with "deep sorrow," adding:
"Mr. Goxx has brought joy to people all across the globe and reminded us not to take life too seriously. He shed light into dark moments of pandemic, inflation and many kinds of trouble."
The hamster had shown no signs of serious illness — but had suddenly stopped eating and fell asleep peacefully on Monday morning. The Twitter thread added:
"For us humans behind Goxx Capital, the situation is hard to grasp and questions about a possible continuance of the project are not relevant to us at the moment (for now, we will leave everything as is)."
The post concluded:
"Thank you and rest in peace, Max (a.k.a Mr. Goxx). You will be missed, and your memory will live forever on the blockchain."
A number of Mr Goxx's Twitter followers have paid tribute — with some describing the hamster as one of the finest crypto traders of all time.
"I copy traded you and couldn't be happier with your brilliant calls," one wrote.
Another added: "Rest in gains."
