Morazán ZEDE has the ability to create legal entities. These companies are not for everyone. Banking and payment rails are very limited currently. However, for those that don't need legacy financial rails, Morazán is probably the most affordable international destination to incorporate in. Common use cases are crypto companies (exchange accounts have been opened), software companies (Morazán companies have been able to get app store access), and holding companies. Interested?
