Since the Swiss have now demonstrated that they will sell out to the IRS, wonder which banks will sell out next?

Of course, this agreement doesn't give immunity to those who accounts were not disclosed, and who knows when some other current or former employee of UBS or other Swiss banks will turn up with a flash drive containing customers names and account information, for a price?

UPDATED: Shortly after OffshoreAlert reported that British 'blockchain-based, cryptocurrency-friendly' online travel booking start-up Travala, which has raised over £2 million from investors and is now owned by a Cayman Islands firm, was facing compulsory strike off for failure to file its accounts, the firm filed unaudited "Micro-entity Accounts" with Companies House that contained scant details.
