What is Tornado Cash (TORN)

How Does it Work

Tornado Cash is a non-custodial privacy solution on the Ethereum blockchain. The community runs Tornado Cash whereas the developers have no ownership of the platform. Tornado Cash allows users to sever linkages in on-chain transactions. It also increases transaction privacy when users deposit or withdraw.

When a user deposits cryptocurrency, the platform generates a secret hash. The protocol accepts deposits and hashes through a procedure called ‘Commitment’. Then, the ‘Commitment’ identifies and validates the asset ownership during withdrawal. Users must enter the secret hash key to establish their ownership if they want to withdraw. This will all happen while users remain anonymous on the blockchain. Currently, they have 2 main features that power the platform.

Zero-Knowledge Proof

Zero-Knowledge Proof is one of the main features of Tornado Cash. It eliminates the need to keep data on Layer 1. This bolsters the security of the platform. It will also minimize congestion happening on the layer 1 blockchain.

Anonymity Mining

Anonymity Mining gives liquidity to Tornado Cash. Users can acquire funds using a liquidity mining mechanism that guarantees user anonymity. Once you interact on the platform, you will earn points. Then, the system will transfer the points directly into your protected account. Additionally, you can convert all these coins into their native token, TORN.
