Offshore bank accounts

US citizens can open offshore bank accounts. However, they should declare these accounts to the IRS. This is not a problem if they pay their taxes.

Banks still allow money transfers to offshore bank accounts. So, US citizens can transfer their money to their offshore bank accounts, and then they can load their accounts at cryptocurrency exchanges.

E-currency exchanges

Also there are many e-money exchanges, so US citizens don't need to open offshore bank account. They can just send money via wire transfer to the e-money exchanger's bank account, and receive e-money to their e-money account. With these e-money they can load their accounts at the cryptocurrency exchangers.

E-money (non-cryptocurrency e-money) are still not banned by the (most) U.S. banks.

Sell services and goods online

If you don't want to provide services yourself, you can hire subcontractor at freelancer websites like Fiverr and

Provide service like

You can start service like (their bank account was closed, so you should expect the same to happen with your bank account if you make such transfers).

Provide service like,,

There are many foreigners, that will be happy to give you bitcoins in exchange for goods from US stores like Amazon.

Cryptocurrency transactions in person are still possible. This is how most of the illegal drugs and other stuff are sold.

SilkRoad 2.0

On these illegal marketplaces you can also sell dollars (and other legal stuff), not only drugs and illegal stuff.


TorATM is an anonymous p2p commodity exchange that operates in real-time. It was designed to easily allow anyone with a twenty dollar bill and access to tor the ability to buy anonymously.

There are future plans to open up twenty dollar bill markets for Euros and other currencies.

Read more at Reddit and Bitcointalk. However, this service is currently offline.

Postal money transfers

This is still available only in UK ( - UK Exchange, operating without a bank - there is no bank account to close, no customer wire transfers to freeze). It is time someone to make a profit from this situation.

Read this if you are customer of CHASE BANK or other US bank: If you have comment spam on your blog (or "bad" keywords) your bank may close your account because their automated system is "thinking" that you are high risk customer.


  1. Actually, the moment you deposit your money to a bank, it becomes their money.

    Quote from Wikipedia:

    From a legal and financial accounting standpoint, the term "deposit" is used by the banking industry in financial statements to describe the liability owed by the bank to its depositor, and not the funds that the bank holds as a result of the deposit, which are shown as assets of the bank. For example, a depositor opening a checking account at a bank in the United States with $100 in cash surrenders legal title to the $100 in cash, which becomes an asset of the bank.


    1. It's an asset of the bank, which they owe you on demand. In other words, it's still your money.
