A 30 year old young crypto founder has been found dead after passing away in his sleep on November 23.
Tiantian Kullander was the co-founder of Hong Kong based Amber Group, a cryptocurrency company. Amber Group had received a valuation of $3 billion while on the way to raise more money.
Amber Group had launched in 2017 with former employees from Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley vested in it.
Kullander, once an employee of both of those financial companies, rocketed to success with Amber Group. He had even earned a spot on Forbes, being added to the Under 30 list.
Amber Group only had positive things to say about Kullander. On their website, they released a statement with confirmation that he had passed away and said, “He put his heart and soul into the company, in every stage of its growth. He led by example with his intellect, generosity, humility, diligence and creativity.”
Kullander was affectionately known as “TT” by his pears and was a “devoted” husband and “loving” father. He was a “respected thought leader and widely recognized pioneer for the industry.”
Any other information about his passing was not available to the public.
In recent weeks, this makes Kullander the second popular crypto star to by found dead. On October 28, Nikolas Mushegian was found washed ashore a beach in Puerto Rico. Mushegan was a developer involved with MakerDAO that had tweeted hours earlier about a plot to frame him and torture him to death
