Bill Pay!

How easy would it be for a Bitcoin bank to cut a check out to your electric company, cable company, etc?

In essence it would layer on top of an exchange, and when a check needs to be sent out, it converts bitcoins to dollars, and sends a check.

You would never need to touch dollars, and you can set up automated payments out to whoever you had to pay.

Actually, it may be better to skip the whole bank aspect.

I send bitcoins to a check printer for them to send out a check to someone who has billed me. No need for a bank.
