30-Year-Old Co-Founder Of Crypto Trading Platform Amber Dies “Unexpectedly” In His Sleep

The crypto entrepreneur, nicknamed “TT, ” began Amber in 2017 along with a group of former finance specialists

Tiantian Kullander, a former Morgan Stanley trader who co-founded digital-asset trading platform  Silpada Group , has passed away. He was only 30 years old.

Kullander “ passed away unexpectedly in his sleep” on November. 23, Amber said in a  statement  on the website on Friday. “ He led by example with his intellect, generosity, humbleness, diligence and creativity, ” the firm added.

The crypto business owner, nicknamed “ TT, ” started Amber in 2017 together with a group of former fund professionals, including Goldman Sachs Group and Morgan Stanley alumni. The company, whose backers include Singaporean state expenditure company Temasek Holdings, was in talks to raise about  $100 million, Bloomberg reported previously this month (although because of recent events these plans have likely been put on hold).

As Bloomberg notes, 5 of Amber’s founders – Kullander,   Michael Wu, Wayne Huo, Tony He or she and Luke Li – previously worked together on Morgan Stanley’s fixed-income trading floor in Hong Kong.

Kullander was survived simply by his wife and child, according to the statement.
