Issues Crypto Should Watch For in the Tornado Cash Sanctions

Where things get weird is when you consider the whole open-source nature of Tornado Cash. As I mentioned, someone (and, I’ve been told, possibly several someones) has been sending small amounts of ETH through Tornado to people who have public Ethereum addresses, including comedians Jimmy Fallon and Dave Chappelle, or crypto folks like Coinbase (COIN) CEO Brian Armstrong and (I guess) Logan Paul and companies like Puma. Because their addresses are public, on the blockchain and not necessarily tied to a specific exchange, it’s difficult, if not impossible, to block these incoming transactions.
