Why on earth are they using "yuan" when spoken is "kuai"? (Also, why are they not letting "yuan" also mean "dollar" seeing as it's used that way pretty frequently, i.e. mei yuan, ou yuan, jia na da yuan, etc. etc.)

Yuan used in a formal situation. While Kuai is often used while you're buying things at markets around you.
