Thought other people might be interested in this too... Transferwise have just started a new service where you can have virtual bank accounts and even a mastercard in multiple currencies!

This is going to solve some serious problems for me and I thought others might find it handy too!

Here is my link where you can sign up.

https://transferwise.com/u/freyap

[Full disclosure: I get a bonus if you sign up via the link, although you get a free transfer for up to 500 GBP too]

Been using transferwise for ages but this new thing of having local accounts is going to save me so many headaches!
 
Presently only available to those based in Europe however although you can use currencies worldwide.

I'd happily accept payment in Bitcoins Adrian! :)

You have any leads on this? ;).

Well i'd say it's a pretty amazing website, that's for sure. I dunno how helpful it'd be in my particular case, but certainly for many free-lancers out there, this type of service is amazing.

As for BTC; man that's a whole level of craziness.

 

Hope you've been well Freya!!

Transferwise is marvellous. The best way to make an international money transfer without getting totally reamed.
