This can be done at smaller levels quite easily, especially if you know other people locally who will buy your crypto OTC for cash or if you have a decent number of localbitcoins.com traders locally. If you're going to do it you need to avoid the banking system at all costs, unless your country has a minimum yearly income threshold before you have to start paying tax and your crypto withdrawals are below that. At higher levels forget it if minimizing long-term risk is something you take seriously. At $1,000 p/m I think this is your best option depending on the points I made above. If you're making more though, look into places like Malta. They've got a dual-company legal taxation entity that effectively reduces your tax down to about 6% from memory + you don't need to live anywhere specifically, stay right where you are. Costs a bit (~$3,500) to setup up but worth it if that $3,500 saves you multiples of that per year. Singapore is the other place I've heard people recommend regularly.
