John McAfee, the bitcoin bull launched a Decentralized Exchange, McAfeeDEX on October 7th, 2019. However, within one hour the exchange encountered a ‘humourous DDOS attack’ as termed by John McAfee himself. Such attacks are usually made to increase the congestion on the servers. The attacks do not allow genuine users to use the exchange efficiently. Although, John McAfee himself recognized the DDOS attempt and was successful in controlling the extent of the attack.

The exchange front end is open source and available on GitHub. Token bounties, i.e. simple tasks are available on GitHub for developers. However, the rewards for the program is still not disclosed clearly. In case of any bugs encountered or support needed, developers can contact the team through email support.
