What do y’all think of this? Seems pretty terrible on its face

    Same argument to be used to lock up anyone who’s ever contributed to a torrenting app or to the protocol itself.

    Whatever your opinion on crypto, taking it down might have some acceptable reasoning behind, but going as far as to arrest the developer is extremely concerning.

        What are you even talking about? It’s 100 percent a question of perspective because as I hope you know, this argument is used constantly (copying files is or should be illegal).

        The fact that you consider it to be a “real crime” should be more than enough for you to realise it’s a ridiculous position.

        Personally, I don’t consider keeping your financial transactions secrets to be a real crime, regardless of what method you’re using. Now what?

                This is very explicitly about North Korea (and others) running their ransomware operations at a profit through tornado cash.

                I fail to understand how different that is from the examples cited by @SineNomineAnonymous . They are charged with "hav[ing] failed to address their use as illegal money laundering services. ". Did @torproject manage to address their use as a child porn sharing service?
