Opening an account in a financial institution

Not all local companies can open a bank account. Basically, this is due to the fact that the company is engaged in activities related to cryptocurrency, then its maintenance is considered the most risky. Another reason - the activities of the organization is not related to jurisdiction.

However, not all banks cooperate with non-residents. In addition, you will need to confirm the legality of the origin of funds. An alternative to billing is the use of payment systems.
