Well you just inspired me that my time spent Saturday night/Sunday morning at 3AM researching bitcoin makes me one of those people doing the weekend thing, haha.

Awesome!

Coinbase for selling BTCs or Vircurex for trading alt cryptocurrencies like DOGEs
CoinNinja for exploring the blockchain.
PM me with any questions on these sites!  Happy to help!
