VISA Issuers And Mastercard Make It Harder To Buy Bitcoin And Other Cryptocurrencies
Sometime in the last week Bitcoin investors started noticing additional fees on their bank statements. It turns out that VISA issuers and Mastercard decided (how convenient!) to reclassify the way Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency purchases are processed on their networks. Incidents like this pose several challenges for the cryptocurrency industry short-term, but also show just how scared the incumbents really are. Currently, if you want to buy bitcoin, ethereum or any other alt-coin instantly, the only option is to use your debit or credit card. Transferring funds from your bank has lower fees, but takes several days. Coinbase has long accepted debit and credit cards for instant buys, however, passing on to the buyer the standard 4 percent credit card transaction fee. [MORE]

Michael Dell (As In The Computer) Buys NY's Most Expensive Apartment For $100 Million
Well, well.. Quite an expensive mystery has been solved today. A real, real estate whodunnit. Back in 2014, the record was claimed for most expensive home purchased in New York, with $100.47 million dropped on a six-bedroom, six-bathroom, penthouse duplex in the notoriously pricey building, One57. But the identity of whose deep pockets would call the place home? Unknown. Today, however, FOUR YEARS LATER, The Wall Street Journal has let us know that the lucky, wealthy man is none other than Michael Dell. As in, Dell computers. The married father of four (perhaps you've seen his daughters boulder of an engagement ring?) has a net worth of $23.2 billion. So all in all, this apartment? Barely a dent on the bank statement. And you know how you can tell? Apparently right after the sale, an acclaimed Texas-based firm of architects was contracted to renovate the place. So yeah, if your first thought after you buy a $100 million apartment is "let's gut this shit," you're going to be okay in life, forever. [MORE]

Inside Rihanna's Wild 30th Birthday Party In NYC
On Tuesday, February 20th, the year of our lord 2018, Rihanna turned 30. The earth shifted. The clouds parted. Needless to say, the fashion icon, pop kween, and beauty mogul rang in her big 3-0 with a blowout bash featuring countless A-listers and (duh) bottles of bubbly. RiRi took over the Seagram Building's "landmark rooms," the multiple hot spots that formerly made up the iconic Four Seasons. A luxe four-course dinner at The Grill was followed by an all-night rager at The Pool, featuring a performance by Toni Braxton (because, really, would you expect anything less?). Guests included Paris Hilton, execs from Roc Nation (including Juan “OG” Perez, the dude Jay-Z just spent $110,000 on this weekend), and of course her billionaire Saudi beau, Hassan Jameel. According to Page Six, Ri's former flame Leonardo DiCaprio even snuck into the after-bash later on in the evening. No sign of Drake, though. He's writing a heartbreak anthem about it as we speak.

The UK Festival Scene Is One Of The Richest In The World Even Without Glastonbury
Festival season is fucking sick isn’t it? Every year in the UK, winter comes through like a fart on a dancefloor and slaps you with an unwelcome mix of depression, sadness and freezing cold temperatures. Apart from Christmas and New Year's, which can even be tiresome at times, it’s a perfect storm of bad vibes and appalling weather. But once March comes around, you start to get that frisky feeling again, a feeling you’d long forgotten about, oh how we’ve missed you old friend. So that brings us onto the pinnacle of the British summer for any dance music fan; festival forays, going wild in a field for four days and losing your mates and the plot to a wealth of amazing electronic music. Holidays abroad, providing they don’t break the bank, are naturally a great way to unwind but at the same time, why bother when the UK has more amazing festivals that ever before. In fact, we’d go as far to say that we’ve got one of the richest festival circuits on the planet, period. [MORE]

A Definitive Ranking Of All The Kardashian Kids
With the recent arrival of Kylie's first spawn and the impending birth of Khloe's much-anticipated child, we (meaning I) thought it would be appropriate to rank the likability of these pure, wholesome next-gen Kardashian/Jenner children who never asked to be in the spotlight but are forced in front of cameras regardless of their feelings or well being. Healthy? No. Ethical? Probably not. F*cked up? Yes. But funny? I like to think so. Check out our list for the hottest, the lamest, and the ones who need to get it together. [MORE]

Jay-Z Dropped $110,000 On A Night Out In NYC
When you're the King of Hip Hop, you go hard for a night out. Jay-Z may have spent more than my NYU tuition on Sunday night, but no one can say he isn't generous. To celebrate the birthday of his good friend, Juan “OG” Perez, the president of Roc Nation Sports, Mr. Beyoncé went wild in New York City, picking up a $13,000 dinner bill at Zuma, as well as a $9,000 bar tab at Made in Mexico. However, the real black card damage was done way uptown at high-end club Playroom, where Jay and his pals ordered over $90,000 worth of booze - including 20 bottles of his Ace of Spades Champagne at $1,200 a pop and 20 bottles of Ace of Spades Rosé - each costing $2,500. A true man of the people, Jay was spotted handing out bottles of the pricey bubbly to fellow revelers. Um, cheers to that. Where do we submit our Best Friend application? [MORE]

Starbucks Is Releasing A Purple Ombré Cold Brew!
It takes a serious caffeine warrior to withstand the winter with a cold brew in hand, but Starbucks' new drink makes it totally worth it. The new Butterfly Pea Lemonade Cold Brew launches on February 20th, and it's a magical concoction about 10 times less obnoxious than their Unicorn Latte (thank god). The color-changing brew boasts a purple ombre effect, due to the bottom layer of Butterfly Pea Flower tea and lemonade. When you mix it all up (with a splash of milk, perhaps) it swirls into a galaxy-like design, complete with a fruity-floral flavor. Yum. The only problem? The springtime sip is only launching in Asia - for now. Good news if you've got a trip planned. The rest of us, however, should start a petition to bring it to the States. [MORE]

The Chemical Brothers Will Bring Their Jaw-dropping Live Show To London This Year
The Chemical Brothers have announced a mammoth London live show at Alexandra Palace on October 5. Believe it or not, this is the first time that the Chems have performed at the 10,000 capacity space and will be their first UK follow up-date after a hectic summer of festivals. –– ADVERTISEMENT –– Formed of Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons, the duo have been making blockrocking (sorry, we had to) dance anthems since the early 90's and their last album 'Born In The Echoes' dropped in 2015. Around that time, the pair announced that Ed would no longer be performing live as part of the show because of other commitments and it's still not been confirmed whether he'll return this time.

Facebook Is Officially Testing A Dislike Option Called “downvote”
Social media platform Facebook is testing a dislike option called “downvote” by launching the new feature to a select number of users in the US. The dislike option has been teased for many years, but has never officially been implemented until now. According to screenshots, some users on Thursday found that they now have the option to “downvote” posts. In a statement given to Daily Beast, a Facebook spokesperson denied that the new function is a “dislike button” while stating it is instead a new option for users to give more specific feedback: “We are not testing a dislike button. We are exploring a feature for people to give us feedback about comments on public page posts. This is running for a small set of people in the U.S. only.” Back in 2016 it was reported that Facebook had discussed the dislike option, but believed it could face backlash. According to Bloomberg, the dislike button “had been rejected on the grounds that it would sow too much negativity”. While users are currently experimenting with the new function, it’s still unclear whether the “downvote” option will see a wider release. [MORE]

Kanye West Returns To Instagram With A Romantic Tribute
Whatever you might have heard about Kim and Kanye's relationship these days, the love is apparently stronger than ever. Sure, there was that sad photo of Yeezus eating alone in Germany a few weeks ago, perhaps agonizing over the sexy photo shoot Kim debuted on social media. But today his blank Insta has been updated with a lovely message in honor of V-Day. Kim, on her part, shared a cute pap snap of the two with the caption "I love you to infinity! Happy Valentine’s Day!!!" North, Saint, and baby Chicago are definitely in a household full of love. Adorbs. Update: It turns out his surprise return to the 'gram was just a precursor to a day full of romance spam. From Kurt and Courtney to Brad and Jennifer, Kanye showcased over 50 iconic couples from the past few decades. One post after another. Of course, he saved the best for last, finishing off the picture spree with a few Kimye shots worthy of hundreds of thousands of double taps. Think this is Ye's favorite holiday or what? [MORE]

Paris Hilton Spills Some Details On Her Upcoming Wedding!
“So many designers have sent such incredible sketches,” Hilton told Vogue while out and about at fashion week. So how's a girl to choose? “There are so many beautiful choices that I’m definitely going to have to have some outfit changes for sure.” Clearly it's only a matter of time until the world experiences a Swarovski crystal shortage. But honestly, have you stopped to consider what the wedding of Paris Hilton will be like? Because I really think you should. I'm ashamed at myself for getting this far into her having announced her engagement without sitting myself down to really imagine what this will involve. She'll have a wedding dress for every hour of the party, that's beyond obvious. But will she have multiple weddings around the country / world as well? After all, this is the girl that went on a five day celebration bender for her 21st birthday! [MORE]
