The latest bitcoin trading session was dominated by the digital currency, with investors pushing for greater transparency and liquidity.
The online trading platform CoinDesk reported that bitcoin trading volumes on the platform rose by 30% on Monday, reaching $2.4bn.
This was an increase of nearly $1bn over the previous week, the report said.
A number of traders have already bought bitcoins as part of an initial coin offering, or ICO.
The platform said that it will launch more platforms to facilitate the trading of bitcoin on Monday.
This is the second week that investors have taken to the platform to buy bitcoin, after a surge of interest sparked by the launch of the Ethereum cryptocurrency earlier this year.
The price of bitcoin is still far from the $6,000 mark, and the cryptocurrency is still trading at around $3,000, according to CoinDesk.
However, a rise in demand could mean that the bitcoin price could reach a plateau, at which point it would start to depreciate.
Investors could therefore be looking to sell their bitcoin before its price begins to fall.
This could be achieved by holding the cryptocurrency for a while longer than the usual 12-month period, as traders do in the United States.
The latest data from CoinDesk show that the average daily volume of bitcoin trading on CoinDesk rose to $2,547 on Monday from $1,908 on Sunday.
This represented a 32% increase over the prior week.
