US Secretary of State Tweets, Deletes Claim That Crypto Mixer Tornado Cash Is North Korea-Sponsored

U.S Secretary of State Antony Blinken raised eyebrows Monday when he tweeted that the U.S. Treasury Department had “sanctioned virtual currency mixer Tornado Cash, which is a U.S.-sanctioned, DPRK state-sponsored hacking group, used by the DPRK to launder money.” One hour and three minutes later, the tweet had been deleted and replaced with what the Treasury Department actually alleged: That Tornado Cash was used by a North Korean hacking group to launder funds.
