The US Treasury Department is clarifying some details of its sanctions against the decentralized crypto mixer Tornado Cash, including the right to distribute the relevant code. From the report: “U.S. sanctions will not prohibit U.S. citizens from copying open source code and making it available online for others to view, or from discussing, teaching, or including open source code in written publications such as textbooks, no additional facts” , says the FAQ published on September 13. The new guide goes on to describe the application process for users whose crypto ended up in Tornado Cash’s mixing pools. “OFAC will have a favorable licensing policy with respect to such applications, provided the transaction does not involve other authorized activities,” according to an FAQ from the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control. The Treasury Department’s clarification comes after six people sued over the sanctions last week. Coinbase is funding the lawsuit.
