It seems also that the US treasury dept is unaware that tornado cash exists on multiple L2. They've only sanctioned addresses on mainnet - and those labelled on Etherscan
For example, Arbitrum 0.1ETH Pool is not on the listhttps://t.co/uAlP416QoY

2) Sanctioning an immutable smart contract, as opposed to individuals/orgs feels like a big freedom of speech issue and bad precedent

Uniswap's treasury is worth approximately $2 billion 🤯
The Uniswap Foundation proposal is asking for $74 million. That's ~4% of Uniswap's treasury...
And the Uniswap Community is divided. Why?

Errr this seems like a risky and terrible idea. If ETH drops a lot, value of collateral would go way down but CDPs would not get liquidated, so the whole system would risk becoming a fractional reserve.

Affected by the tornado sanctions, MakerDAO founder Rune Christensen said that he is seriously considering moving away from using USDC as collateral and converting USDC into ETH. Vitalik said non-ETH collateral should be allowed to exceed 20% of the total. pic.twitter.com/x3ocsCq6KH

The terminal total difficulty has been set to 58750000000000000000000.
This means the ethereum PoW network now has a (roughly) fixed number of hashes left to mine.https://t.co/3um744WkxZ predicts the merge will happen around Sep 15, though the exact date depends on hashrate. pic.twitter.com/9YnloTWSi1
