Capital Markets Trading Group became involved in the cryptocurrency trading space in 2013. Colleen Sullivan, an employee of CMT, suggested to the firm's founders that it should begin looking at bitcoin as a viable investment opportunity. Sullivan would later become the CEO of CMT Digital.[3]

In 2014, the company began engaging with regulators to help form regulatory clarity in the crypto space. The company made its first bitcoin investment in 2016. The following year, the company launched its crypto assets trading desk, as well as its venture investments initiative. In 2018, CMT Digital launched blockchain equity venture fund and then went on to co-found DeFi Alliance in 2020.
