"The $15 million in ether (4,600 ETH) stolen from Singapore-based Crypto.com is currently being laundered via Tornado Cash, an Ethereum Mixer"


Law enforcement has previously shut down other mixers such as Bestmixer, which was raided by European Union authorities in 2019, and Helix, which was shut down by the FBI in 2021 for laundering Darknet funds.


Several users of a major cryptocurrency exchange endorsed by Matt Damon in a notorious viral ad complained over the weekend that their funds on the platform had been stolen. Confusion has reigned since then


“As far as I've seen, Crypto.com haven't said that no funds were lost, but that ‘no customer funds were lost.’ This could mean that the funds belonged to the company themselves rather than customers, or that any customer losses will be covered by the business. But that's just me speculating based on what I see on social media.”
