Add check for account age to apply restrictions #2801
This PR provides some security improvements to enable us to unblock the banned SEPA counties and Interac due to the chargeback scams.
We limit accounts created after 15.3. to 0.01 BTC trades in case they are the fiat buyer of payment methods considered risky regarding chargebacks (basically all bank transfer methods).
This is a intermediary solution as the planned proposals will require more time to get implemented and deployed.
To ensure that users with old version cannot be caught by the scammer once we unblock the banned counties and Interac we will send out a message which enforces all users to update, otherwise their trades will fail. We will do that shortly after the release (about 2 days).

ACK - besides a small UI issue with popups everything worked as expected. @devinbileck and I experienced a problem on Regtest that an old account wasn't able to take a sell offer by a new account that exceeded the demo amount of 0.01 BTC. The reason for this error was that the account age witness data wasn't propagated in the local network at the point the offer was taken. Shouldn't be a problem on Mainnet.
