Yes, there are further reasons. For instance, Monero RPC does not have equivalents of events for new block or transaction received. This means one has to poll (though this is not overly complicated, see eg https://github.com/tippero/python-monero/ for an example). There is also the fact that the node and wallet are separate binaries. Also, RPC is ...

There are ways to convert the cryptocurrencies to your local money, and/or to send that to a payee. But they will give a bad exchange rate and add fees on top of that. In a ...

It's harder, for two main reasons. First, Monero doesn't have multi-sig yet, which means wallet security is a tougher challenge. Second, it's different, which makes it harder for any exchange to integrate. They already have infrastructure in place to integrate Bitcoin and Bitcoin-forked coins, but have to build new infrastructure for Monero. It's not as ...
