Business Banking | Corporate Bank Account

If you are a corporation, it is advisable to talk directly to the bank – explain your project and business plus which type of funds you expect to go into the bank. If you intend to have most of your income from crypto sources, it’s advisable to gauge the banks risk profile of this.

If a bank brands themselves as crypto friendly, this doesn’t necessarily mean they are ICO friendly, or crypto-trading friendly. There are enough crypto-friendly banking options, even today, to get an account for exactly what you need and not worry about a future closure.

How long to open a crypto bank account?

It is worth remembering bank management may care how much money you have, compliance departments may not. Crypto banking is still at an infant stage. As such, compliance will need a lot of items and documents, sometimes originals, and will request far above a normal account opening.

Account opening times vary depending on the people and/or business. Generally account opening times run into months rather than weeks, however having Harvex handle the application can speed this up.

2) The second is a specific cryptocurrency bank account. This could be a trader, broker, exchange, OTC desk, on an individual or company level.

In the case of 1), a lot of people or businesses have received cryptocurrency into their bank accounts (probably accounts held for years) with major banks, with no problems.

These may not be full Bitcoin Friendly banks, but if you take a few payments a month in cryptocurrency, you may find your bank do not have an issue with you, especially if the values you receive are in line with regular income.
