I was listening to a letstalkbitcoin episode a few weeks ago (can't remember which one) and it were a few American guys who had entered a partnership with a Swiss bank and I would assume they also registered the company in Switzerland.

Switzerland seems to be, from a regulatory standpoint, a relative safe bet to register a company that will be dealing with bitcoin transactions such as fiat to BTC and vice versa.

Does anybody here know which Swiss banks that are bitcoin friendly and would be worth contacting for setting up a partnership?

Thanks.

Unlike traditional banking where clients have only a few account numbers, with Bitcoin people can create an unlimited number of accounts (addresses). This can be used to easily track payments, and it improves anonymity.

Yes, the above.   Swiss banks used to be viewed as a safe haven for people trying to evade taxes or hide excess liquid assets, but they did give in to the US demands, and many were indeed exposed.

Right now, it seems like none of the Swiss banks are accepting Bitcoin, or are Bitcoin-friendly. But in cryptothrift, I came upon a vendor selling Polish bank accounts, which can be funded using Bitcoins. Don't know how reliable those are.

the Polish bank accounts are no real checking accounts but only a kind of backend for the debit cards they offer (you can only transfer money to the bank account and are not able to
do outgoing wire transfers)

I have no idea about bitcoin friendliness. I doubt that most Swiss banks have any views on the subject. Their main concern is that they are not comfortable with anything that might expose them to U.S. or E.U. regulatory attack. You are likely to have more joy with a Swiss bank that has no exposure outside of Switzerland. Your company will also need to be Swiss registered and domiciled.  Your best bet is to set up a meeting with one of the local cantonal banks such as Raffeisen in Geneva.

Because of FATCA, banks all over the world must report on behalf of their American customers to the US government. This makes it highly unlikely at the current juncture that banks might adapt bitcoin. It might rather be that they develop their own centralized 'bitcoins' and ignore btc.

That is surprising.... because the vendor was claiming that the cards can be used for withdrawing money using Paypal, Moneybookers.etc.  Angry

Needs to be careful about this.

If it is stored in USD anywhere the USA has every right.  This is what lost loads of money in Panama.  They do not own BTC though and have zero rights.
