Johns Hopkins University professor Matthew Green re-uploaded the Tornado Cash cryptocurrency mixer code to the GitHub software library

The platform closed the user accounts of all known developers of Tornado Cash and removed the repositories (repositories) of the source code, following the introduction of US sanctions against the cryptomixer on August 8. Greene explained in a GitHub post that he posted the code to support research and education on cryptocurrency privacy. Losing or reducing the availability of this source code will harm the scientific and technical community, according to the professor.

Green explained that he would be able to release it on another platform if GitHub removed the repository. However, the scientist noted that he has no reason to believe that GitHub objects to republishing the code.

The human rights organization Сoin Center is considering the possibility of appealing in court the decision to add the Tornado Cash cryptocurrency mixer to the US sanctions list. The Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), a division of the US Treasury, has exceeded its authority by imposing sanctions against the crypto platform, the Coin Center claims.
