As we noted in another thread, we are in the process of opening a physical Bitcoin acquiring / redemption centre.  You will be able to walk in and sell your coins for cash or trade them for precious metals.  Alternatively, you can purchase or trade for Bitcoins.   We are doing this because we believe that no system that relies upon traditional banking is sustainable. 
Having started many online banking companies in the late 90's and early 00's that focused on mass payments in the online gaming field, we quickly learned that banks are not your friends when it comes to quasi-banking services.  Once you became too successful, it was game over.  At one point in 2003 we were clearing 10,000 checks daily through an HSBC branch.  After a couple of months and several bank audits, we received the dreaded "We are sorry to inform you" letter.  The same occurred at all of the major Canadian banks, credit unions and trusts. That was more than 8 years ago when banks were not as sophisticated as they are today to monitor irregular activity.
As for US banks, forget about them.  Just try receiving wire or cash deposit payments into your account from multiple sources.  We had over 5000 individuals holding deposit slips to our accounts at Chase and BofA.  Individuals would walk into a branch with a completed deposit slip and make a deposit.  Within weeks all accounts were shut down.  Especially personal accounts which receive several deposits (3 or more) from unrelated sources are flagged for audit.  The primary goal of the bank is to avoid personal accounts being operated as business accounts.

In the marketplace -> services thread


Hello Board,

We are in the process of opening a Bitcoin exchange office in Montreal, Canada.

You will be able to:

1) Purchase Bitcoins for Cash at market rate plus a small % based on Volume (1% to 5%)
2) Sell Bitcoins for Cash at market rate less a small % based on Volume (1% to 5%)
3) Trade Bitcoins for Gold, Silver or Palladium
4) Deposit Bitcoins for interest
5) Hedge Bitcoin prices

Further details will be provided closer to the anticipated opening date of October 15, 2013. 

In the mean time any suggestions or services that you would like to see, please let us know.

Thank you

YUL Bitcoin

No surprise my current bank is listed as hostile, their complete business structure is archaic and outdated. Looks like I'll be switching over to our "friends" over at BMO.

I have also gone ahead and added some additional information on IAFCU's recent developments.

As always, if you have any additional information to ad anywhere (links especially appreciated) please post here and I'll add them to the OP.

okay, I have changed the format of the list a little bit as well. Instead of having two lists, one for good banks and one for bad, i've now made it so that its just one big list sorted by country.

Can't speak for everyone, but I thought the old format was a little easier to read.  In any case, thanks for keeping the list up to date.
