Mr. Goxx has a specific set of office hours that are stream via his Twitch channel, but he is free to enter or exit at any time from his crypto trading desk.

Can A Hamster Make Better Crypto Trading Decisions Than Humans?
According to a report by BBC News, Goxx Capital was an idea put into action by two German friends in their 30s. In light of the surge of people turning to crypto trading to increase their income, they thought Mr. Goxx was capable of making “smarter investment decisions than we humans do”.
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. We were joking about whether my hamster would be able to make smarter investment decisions (…).
The hamster started his career on June 12th, 2021, with 326 euros on his account. Although he went on to have a red month, Mr. Goxx was able to recover and achieve the aforementioned gains.
