I bought $100 of bitcoin in August, then forgot about it.

It's now worth $171.

Yesterday, I bought another $100. I think it's gone up 10% in 24 hours.

I used to purchase the bitcoins, but it seems like that's become an expensive and cumbersome method. I researched it back in August, and got very confused about the best way to do this. I find it VERY opaque. Screams for some kind of consumer-friendly regulation. I can't make heads or tails of fees, risks, etc. But with a CAGR of like 300%, it's hard to resist, even with high transaction costs!

Any tips on the cheapest, easiest, safest (in terms of scrupulous vendors, not investment risk) way to buy and sell bitcoins?
