Veritas http://veritascard.com/ It costs 30€ per year but the Mastercard itself is free (issued by Prepaid Financial Services). You get a dedicated IBAN with it. They accept transactions from/to Crypto exchange platforms I believe since their FAQ says:
But do you get an online banking account where you can send a SEPA transaction from that IBAN to an exchange or some other bank account as well? Doesn't say anything about that, only about receiving.

Yes of course, if you check the page "Instant cash transfer" or "Why Veritas" or the fees pages you will see it is possible to send to another user card or to a bank account. Some people may find the fee high (2.5% min. 5€) but if they accept to deal with companies related to cryptocurrencies why not Smiley
I think unlike other services who have a partnership with banks (and so their regulations/laws) Veritas doesn't' deal with banks but with Prepaid Financial Services and it can be the reason if they accept payments coming/going from/to crypto exchanges...

Ah, nice, don't know how I missed that. But I wonder if an outgoing SEPA transfer is in your name or in the company's name, the same as with Viabuy.com. Have you tried?

I guess those dedicated IBAN are using your name when you make a transfer outside. Honestly I don't know. I know Viabuy as there are lot of complaints about them with their aggressive marketing method. Firstly you don't pay the card immediately, they send it to you without payment. Then you receive a letter from another company explaining ViaBuy will go to the judge if you don't pay the 90€ asap. Or when you ask them why the transfer is taking more than 10 days to be credited you are not so welcome

Do you get a personal or shared IBAN? Edit: if not a scam, looks like shared.

OK they replied me back but with no clear answer or none for what I asked, to be more accurate. We speak the same language so there is no problem regarding communication.
I clearly asked if we are able to receive funds coming from companies related to crypto currencies (ie; bitcoin)
Answer: We currently accept funds only with SEPA transfers in Euros
I am puzzeled.

They are probably not familiar with crypto transactions or even bitcoins so they gave you the safe, generic and template-type SEPA only and nothing else line.

By funds only, I'm assuming they want Euros transferred to their IBAN account and nothing else. Being based in the EU, I'm sure they are just as enthusiastic in complying with EU regulations and are probably not behind when it comes to new stuff such as the French decree limiting transaction amounts and requiring KYC for all French residents.

As per their site:

The account opening can be carried out online in less than 5 minutes. The account is then limited in use and can be extended by uploading a copy of an ID document and a proof of residency.

Unlike a traditional bank account, the Sogexia payment account does not offer overdraft nor cheques and works in real-time. Bank transfers are credited as soon as they are received without any additional value day, payments are visible immediately in the transaction history and transfers between two Sogexia accounts are instantaneous. Furthermore, notifications are sent via SMS and e-mail for each past and future transaction (e.g. an upcoming direct debit).


And most notably:

As of today, account applications are open to every European Union resident.

I can imagine their partner banks, BNP Paribas and Raphaels Bank, being not so happy about bitcoin-related payments.

I doubt they have a "blacklist" of crypto-companies whose transfers they deny, especially since it says nothing of the sort in their FAQ, etc. The main thing that interests me is if outgoing SEPA transfers are in the card/account holder's name or in their company's name. If in our name then sending/receiving to Kraken/Bitstamp/GDAX shouldn't be a problem. Maybe ask this directly without mentioning crypto/bitcoin/exchanges?

I haven't received any reply from VeritasCard yet... Maybe you could try, since I assume you speak French?

I got a reply from VeritasCard, confirming that outgoing SEPA transactions are in your name, meaning you can use it for crypto exchanges, etc.

They even have bitcoin as a payment option for your yearly fee, although greyed out for me for some reason...

You need to be careful when getting cards or opening accounts with fly-by-night or new card providers, especially if they promise everything which compliant and regulated companies don't allow. Some of these unheard-of card providers might be struggling with building a larger client base and will simply tell you what you want to read or hear as a lure to join.

Then when you have the account active and funded, you might find that their terms and conditions do allow what they promise subject to more terms and conditions. Or you might notice a deafening silence after injecting coins and money in their system.

Carefully check their terms and do extensive due diligence. Look out for reviews suggesting service inconsistencies or fraud accusations.

You are of course correct, this is all true. VeritasCard has been offering their service since 2012 though, and added a personal IBAN last year. I won't order one from them though, was just curious and emailed them, someone else will have to confirm what they wrote.

Not really. The problem is they don't have a blacklist of crypto-companies true that, they will be happy to accept but the thing they need to obey to the banks that they are in partnership with. If a bank says no then they have to follow this requirement.
If the IBAN is in your name it doesn't mean you can deal with crypto companies with no problem. Take a look at Transferwise, they do have personal IBAN but can't accept transactions with crypto companies

Yes, since their FAQ says something like: we can't receive/send Bitcoin, Litecoin etc but you can sell your coins on any exchange platform and then request a transfer to your Veritas account...
The bitcoin as a payment option greyed may be because the account needs to be verified.

Are online banks secure? Also, isn't it better to buy others' accounts for privacy rather than invest in banks with low-end wallet balance?
Do some banks store BTC in their vault?

Three more services, but can't be used with exchanges:

https://moneypolo.com has a shared (Czech/German) IBAN.

https://www.paymix.eu/ has a shared (Slovak) IBAN. (Edit: not sure if they still work) Edit2: now known as https://www.yuropay.com/

http://papaya.eu/ has a shared (Maltese) IBAN, the card is only available to customers living in Malta, Italy, Spain and Greece, and there is no other way to withdraw the funds other than the card (no outgoing SEPA transfers, so not really an online bank account).
Edit: the card is available to all EU residents except Germany and Switzerland now. Third-party incoming SEPA transactions are allowed, and it's possible to send an outgoing SEPA transaction, but it has to be to a bank account in your name.
