The crypto world has been shocked by the sudden death of Tiantian Kullander (TT), a young crypto founder at the age of 30. He was the co-founder of Hong-Kong-based digital asset firm Amber Group, died unexpectedly on November 23, the company confirmed. Although his tragic death occurred five days ago, other significant information about it, such as the cause of death and the exact circumstances, are still unclear.
The passing of the founder of the Amber Group comes little over a month after the drowning death of 29-year-old MakerDAO early developer Nikolas Mushegian, another young crypto talent. Mushegian died on San Juan’s Condado Beach after being pulled by sea currents. For those who want to swim and surf, this beach is one of the most hazardous beaches.

Kullander played a key role in Amber’s spectacular success, which it had achieved earlier this year, a valuation of $3 billion. Amber Group was founded in 2017 by him and a group of financial insiders, including former Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Morgan Stanley employees. In 2019, he earned himself a spot on the Forbes Under 30 list. It is such a tragedy that we lost another bright star in crypto.
