Crypto founder Tiantian Kullander dies unexpectedly at the age of 30

The financial world has been rocked by the sudden and unexpected death of a young crypto founder at just 30 years old.

Tiantian Kullander, the co-founder of Hong Kong-based digital asset company Amber Group, died in his sleep on November 23, with the news being confirmed “with the deepest sadness and a heavy heart” on the company’s website.

Kullander, affectionately known as “TT,” founded Amber in 2017 with a group of financial insiders, including former employees of Goldman Sachs Group and Morgan Stanley.

Prior to that, he worked as a trader at both financial giants and earned a coveted spot on the 2019 Forbes 30 Under 30 list, which recognizes the most talented aspiring entrepreneurs and executives.

Earlier this year, the startup reached a staggering $3 billion valuation after raising a $200 million funding round.

Earlier this month, it was revealed that the company was in the process of raising approximately $100 million, with the firm describing him as “instrumental in the founding of Amber and a pillar of our success.”
