Tornado Cash Transaction Volume Soars Because Users Are Afraid Of The Treasury’s Sanctions
The Tornado Cash mixer has seen a significant drop in deposits, indicating that users withdraw from the platform following US Treasury sanctions.
According to data from The Block Research, since the ban was announced, only $6 million has been deposited into the protocol, down 78.5% from last week.
Users rushed to withdraw, increasing overall trading volume. There was $62 million withdrawn from the protocol, a 15% reduction in the amount of cryptocurrency stored in wallet addresses; $14.7 million was withdrawn in the first three hours alone.
Many platforms have denied involvement with Tornado Cash, and it is expected that many more names will do the same in the coming days. Specifically, Circle was ordered to freeze the 75,000 USDC contained in the sanctioned wallet addresses.
It can be said that Tornado Cash is currently the focus of US regulators when the platform has seen an increase in the amount of “illegal” trading money recently.
