Colleen Sullivan is CEO and Partner at CMT Digital, a division of the CMT Group. CMT Digital is focused on crypto asset trading, blockchain technology investments, and legal/policy engagement in the crypto asset/blockchain technology industry.

Beginning in late 2013, the firm immersed itself in understanding the bitcoin protocol and took an active role in shaping the regulatory landscape for crypto assets. Accustomed to operating in highly regulated markets, CMT Digital participates in global discussions on regulation, policy, and best practices in the crypto asset and blockchain space.
