Tornado Cash is a popular Ethereum mixer protocol that helps obfuscate crypto transactions.
In April, Tornado Cash promised to block crypto addresses sanctioned by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). But sanctioning addresses doesn’t mean the mixer cannot be used for dark services.
As a result, yesterday, OFAC sanctioned Tornado Cash because it “launders the proceeds of cybercrime, including those committed against victims in the US”.
At the moment, the investigation is still going. But most likely, all the funds of the mixer and the wallets of those who directly drove assets through them will be blocked, and mixer’s founders will be put on the wanted list for a US court.
