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.
Those able to leave your homes during quarantine …
(to buy food or get medical care, etc.) …
Take photos of interesting aspects of your vacant cities, highways, etc.
$500 in DAI crypto paid for the best photo (Chosen by @theemrsmcafee next week)
Just drop photos here:)

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.

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.
