Asian friendly bank account in SEPA zone

I am looking to open a personal bank account in SEPA zone which accepts non european customers (Indian in particular).
I will be using it for crypto-currency exchanges but for that I can use an EMI in between.
I need a bank instead of EMI as I need to be able to deposit money in the bank account using SWIFT and the recipient has to be in my name.
I would prefer if it can be opened remotely.

Thanks for sharing that. I will give it a try.
Just want to clarify that it isn't necessary for the bank to be crypto-friendly as I can use an EMI for that.
I just want a bank which will accept SWIFT deposits under my name and then allow me to transfer those to the EMI which is also under my name.

With wirex, i dont need to transfer money out to another exchange or emi as i can buy from them so that i kinda solves the whole problem.
(I am waiting for my account to get verified)
Plus they allow to deposit using card which is a great advantage but the limits are low ($1000/day)
Still if you know any bank which would allow euro or usd SWIFT deposits then please do share

Well I got verified today but it doesn't provide me with an option to add funds using bank transfer. It only allows to add funds using card (I have opened a ticket so will have to wait for their response). Also the crypto prices are about 1.5% higher than the market price. So my search continues.
I am thinking of opening an account with handelsbank. Does someone have any experience with it?

Update to it
Comes out you need to order a card to make SWIFT transfers and Indian nationals can't be issued card from a non-indian bank.
