I just saw a Tweet with that title which made me think about it. We keep talking about barriers of entry but no improvement is actually done in this area for a long time. We are in 2020 and still a user can't walk to a 7 Eleven store and buy BCH for small amounts that they might spend on cigarettes for example.

A new user has to go to companies like MoonPay who will rip them off with credit card fees and their personal documents. Online markets like local.bitcoin.com or localcryptos.com are way better but most good traders avoid wasting time on deals below $300. I think Coinbase offer better deals but it's not available in many countries and KYC is a serious privacy concern.

So a normal person can't save little amount of their pocket money in crypto so they end up wasting their money on consumer goods. They can easily walk to any store and buy reload for their prepaid line, Steam, Starbucks and Google Play gift cards, etc but they can't buy crypto from similar channels.

So what's stopping us from providing this very valuable service to people? Is there legal concerns? What can be done about this?
