Belize und Guatemala haben einen langjährigen Konflikt, der Jahrhunderte zurückreicht. Der Ursprung liegt sogar noch vor der Gründung von Belize im 20. Jahrhundert und Guatemala im frühen 19.

This presents a great opportunity to ask ourselves whether we have sufficiently structured our business and personal affairs…

I’ll leave Europeans trying to open a bank account in the US for another day, but today we’ll look at the advantages and disadvantages for American banking in Europe.
So you’ve decided to launch your own startup bank. And you want it to be competitive in the global banking world while interfacing with cryptocurrencies.
