Recently, FTX froze a user account who sent coins to @aztecnetwork 's zkmoney. According to FTX, Aztec Connect - Aztec network / zk money has been identified as a mixing service, which is a high-risk activity prohibited by FTX.

We are aware of reports that FTX is warning users not to interact with Aztec.
As a result, we want to underscore our current and ongoing risk-reduction framework:
1) Implement practical deterrents
2) Measure their effectiveness

To be clear--this is getting garbled. We are constantly monitoring transactions for AML compliance, and do enhanced due diligence on certain transactions, but that does not mean that any accounts were frozen. https://t.co/FVOGHUa4TJ
