The bottom line: 
Yuvin Poon writes a letter on behalf of his companyDelta Finacial (BTCDelta), where he asks to open a dollar bank account for his company, which is necessary for operations primarily to withdraw client funds into fiat from Bitfinex through his technical equipment. In fact, Poon was trying to organize a crypto bank, with bitcoin deposits for clients. Previously, they discussed the topic of withdrawing funds directly from exchanges, but the bank was not ready to subscribe either to the volumes or to the clients whose loot was planned to be withdrawn (which is logical in light of the drug money laundering case in Finike). But Poon was interested in the opportunity to transfer and withdraw physicists’ money through them in volumes of up to $25,000 at a time, 3-7 transactions per week. Accordingly, he was ready, if the bank goes to a meeting, to subscribe to any bank limits and requirements for clients and their money.

Accordingly, the funds should be chased like this:
&quot;Specifically, the funds flow would look as follows:
— Delta sells client's BTC on their behalf on Bitfinex (or another major exchange) *
— Delta's account at Cayman National receives USD wire from Bitfinex
— Delta sends out USD wire from Cayman National to client&quot;

In general, BTCDelta was supposed to be a techie, and a techie needed an account and loyal conditions for KYC / AML, although Pun swore that customers would pass verification without problems.

In response, Anita brought the issue up for discussion by the board of directors of the bank, and it decided that it was somehow inappropriate to go into this cash story. &quot;... we are unfortunately, we are unable to consideropening bank accounts for bitcoin operations or companies. Thus, it probably answers your questions below. However, we can open accounts for the use of day to day operational expenses of the company, and to hold company capital. This was the premise we made when we set up the account for Delta Financial&quot;. In general, if you do not come with a crypto theme, then welcome.

No wonder crypto pads are sufferingthen they ran around the world in search of the most sloppy banks to open accounts, so that the money would drive from / to Bitfinex and others, even if they were leaked to the Caymans.

What's interesting about correspondence? Vaziri writes to Lee Penrose on September 9:
"As discussed,Rodolfo and Enrico from Bitfinexwill be on the Isle of Man next week on theevening of 17 Sept and all day on the 18 Sept. It would be good if you guys could arrange to meet to discuss possible banking arrangements for Bitfinex on the Island."
That isFracassi and Danieletto were introduced to the island banker as top managers of Bitfinex. The conversation naturally went on opening bank accounts for Phenicia.

Penrose replies that he is waiting for the opportunity to chat on the topic eagerly:
“Dear Rodolfo, Thanks for your email.I very much look forward to meeting with you next week to explore how Cayman National can assist Bitfinex on the Island. I will also be attending the Crypto Valley Conference on the 17th and 18th. It appears that the day’s presentations will take place in the morning on the 18th after which there is a tour of the Island for delegates. I am not sure if you intend to go with the tour but I could meet you either at or after the networking lunch which is scheduled to finish at 2.30pm.”
