One of the biggest barriers to getting into bitcoins is the tedious process of going through several payment processors to actually get the bitcoins... Besides cash itself, the other alternative I can see would be money orders where you know that you can cash it without having to worry about check fraud and waiting for it to clear.

So, why don't more exchanges have this as an option?

Money orders, like checks and other demand instruments, are reversible (in certain circumstances), while bitcoins on the other hand, are not.

To my mind, if we want to call bitcoin the strongest payment currency, it has to get much more stable.

Possibly in your country you have a hard time to get and purchase bitcoins but in our country it is just a matter of minutes. In the Philippines we have the coins.ph bitcoin exchange wherein it has a feature that you can buy bitcoins at the remittance centers and banks and after the deposit the bitcoin will be credited on your balance in just minutes. Pretty cool isnt it.

Look at the date of the OP, it is way back 2011 and by that time, It is hard to purchase bitcoins everywhere. For your information, coins.ph was founded on March 20, 2014 according to coindesk. It is probably harder to buy bitcoins by that time in the Philippines when compared to OP's hometown(assuming he doesn't live in the same country as yours) ain't it? Considering OP hasn't come back for a long time to check his thread, it is safe to assume that it is also easy to buy btc in his hometown right now.

True, OP is quite old, but it is still can be useful for some people.

It is rather a question of how much information you are ready to provide to buy cryptocurrency. The bigger amount of crypto requires complete verification and a bank account. If you are ok with buying little amounts of crypto, then buying with both cash and credit or debit cards is easy and fast. If you are considering a purchase of large amount, it would be better to make it with bank account or bank transfer.

Here are some good ways to buy large amount of crypto https://www.buybitcoinworldwide.com/buy-bitcoin-bank-transfer-account/

It's true that a fairly slow process is so boring, but we can use a voucher to melt faster on fiat money, and that's great.

One of the biggest issues with making it convenient and quick to buy bitcoins is the fact that most of the payments are irreversible whilst bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are not. Many exchanges are trying to save themselves the hassle by using the most secure payment options which usually result in a bit more inconveniences. However, as its becoming easier and easier to trace people down I believe soon it will be easy to purchase bitcoins almost as easy as buying gift cards, or some shopping online.

Luckily, quys, I've recently heard about Paytomat. Paytomat will streamline the process of accepting the payment in crypto for the merchant, and give an extra incentive for the customer to pay in crypto of their choice with no extra conversion. This will bring liquidity to cryptocurrencies.

For encashing the money most of the people go with the local exchanges do that work but if you want to convert the bitcoin into cash you can always use the localbitcoins.com as the way pipeline for it bro.
Then you cannot find the many exchanges with that option due to they are operating with the decentralized medium mate.

I think a lot of exchanges don't have fiat option because of the legal routine it entails. If you use fiat, you need to pay taxes and register everything officialy, while as crypto is unregulated in most countries you can easily evade it if all operations are in crypto.

In my opinion, if you say bitcoin is a good cryptocurrency and it's very stable. Very strong payment currency.
