Is using USD or other fiat currencies in the realm of possibility to access the SIA decentralized network?
I understand that to buy SIA coin I have to buy bitcoin and afterwards trade bitcoin for siacoin. I understand the reliance on the cryptocurrency model + decentralized storage as SIA's model.
I understand the network depends on paying pay hosts for their contract fees and whatnot.
What I don't understand is why do I have to rely entirely on cryptocurrency to access the decentralizedSIA storage network? Money is money right? I just want to use USD > SIA Decentralized Storage.
It seems to me that using existing currencies like the USD, finance methods with (VISA/PAYPAL/typical banks) to access the decentralized storage would make accessing the network so much easier.
Is there a way to have the same contract based system and hosts can accept in USD instead of relying 100% on siacoin?
(I have never owned cryptocurrency, so my problem is getting into any crypto, not just SIA)
