According to a statement posted on Amber’s website on Friday, Tiantian Kullander, the 30-year-old Co-Founder of crypto trading platform Amber, has died unexpectedly in his sleep.
Tiantian Kullander, a former trader at Morgan Stanley who co-founded the trading platform for digital assets known as Amber Group, has passed away. He had just turned thirty.
On November 23, Kullander “passed away unexpectedly in his sleep,” according to a statement posted on Amber’s website on Friday. The company continued, “He led by example with his intellect, generosity, humility, diligence, and creativity.”
With a team of former financial industry professionals, including Goldman Sachs Group and Morgan Stanley veterans, the cryptocurrency entrepreneur known by the nickname “TT” founded Amber. Bloomberg reported earlier this month that the startup, whose backers include Singaporean state investment corporation Temasek Holdings, was in discussions to fund approximately $100 million (although in light of recent events those plans have likely been put on hold).
According to Bloomberg, Kullander, Michael Wu, Wayne Huo, Tony He, and Luke Li are five of Amber’s founders who formerly collaborated on Morgan Stanley’s Hong Kong fixed-income trading floor.
