The recovery of Tornado Cash on GitHub happened shortly after the announcement OFACthat “Interoperability with open source [миксера] not prohibited.”

On August 8, OFAC placed Tornado Cash on the sanctions list on suspicion of laundering over $7 billion in cryptocurrencies.

On August 12, Dutch authorities arrested Alexey Pertsev, the developer of the service. The authorities suspect him of involvement in money laundering and concealment of criminal financial flows.

In mid-September, the US Treasury allowed users to withdraw digital assets from addresses affiliated with the Tornado Cash mixer.
