John McAfee is offering a $500 reward in the stablecoin DAI for the best photo that encapsulates the post-apocalyptic nature of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. 

In a tweet made April 3, McAfee asked for users who were able to leave their homes to send him photos of “interesting” aspects of their cities as a result of the coronavirus shutdown. He offered a $500 reward for the best photo, with the winner being announced next week. 

Users immediately began submitting photos encapsulating the haunting and vacant reality of cities across the globe. 

One user published a photo of Grand Central in New York City during rush hour. 

Another user published a photo showing the mostly vacant street corners of Times Square. 

Gas prices have plummeted across the country as a result of the slow response by the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) cartel to the ongoing economic crisis. One Twitter user published a photo of unleaded gasoline in his town going for less than $1 per gallon.
