The crypto industry now mourns the untimely death of Tiantian Kullander, the young and brilliant and visionary mind behind the Amber Group, a cryptocurrency company that achieved a milestone earlier this year after being valued at $3 billion.
Kullander, who was fondly called “TT” by his peers and those that were close to him, died in his sleep on November 23 and although it has been five days since his sudden demise, other important details pertaining to his passing such as the cause of it and the actual circumstances have not been made public.
The Amber Group founder’s death comes just almost a month after another young crypto genius in 29-year-old MakerDAO early developer Nikolas Mushegian died from drowning.
Mushegian’s lifeless body was found on a Puerto Rican beach just few hours after he tweeted about an alleged plot to have him murdered.
Tiantian Kullander: More Than Just An Integral Piece In Amber Group’s Success
In 2017, with the help from the likes of former Goldman Sachs Group Inc and some employees of Morgan Stanley, Kullander launched Amber Group – now known to be a leading digital asset company with global operations.
Despite being relatively new, “TT’s” brainchild quickly rose to the ranks and became a force to be reckoned with among its competitors in the crypto industry.
Owing to the impressive contributions he has made not only to his firm but to the entire crypto industry, Tiantian Kullander was named in Forbes’ famed Under 30 list.
In fact, in February 2022, fuelled by a fundraising round that yielded $200 million, Amber Group pushed its market capitalization to $3 billion.
The company is seeking to solidify its status and is already in the process of going for another funding round that is expected to raise another $100 million.
Sadly, the one that started it all for the company will no longer have the chance to witness its success in this particular endeavor.
Remembering Tiantian Kullander
Amber Group recognized the kind of work ethic that its gone-too-soon founder put together for the company’s success.
“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,” said the firm’s statement when it confirmed Kullander’s death through their official website.
Tiantian Kullander is being held in high regard by those who had the pleasure to work with him and who remembers him as a respected leader and a pioneer in the crypto industry.
Through his insights and creativity, Kullander became an inspiration for a lot of projects, communities and people.
