Bitcoin, the largest cryptocurrency by circulation, climbed as high as $30,022, its highest since July 23.
There was no immediate news catalyst for the move in bitcoin, said Joseph Edwards, head of research at London crypto firm Enigma Securities.
The approval of any such applications, crypto investors have said, could usher in a new wave of capital to the asset class.
