    Project mention: Creating a cyber threat intelligence tool | | 2023-02-08

    Project mention: GitHub accounts of people who contributed to Tornado Cash repos just got deleted | | 2022-08-09

    There are tons of tools on GitHub that do group signatures. There are even infosec tools actively being used by North Korean hackers (eg. pick anything from this list). I don't think Monero is comparable to TornadoCash in any meaningful way. The one is clearly a protocol, the other is clearly a product.
