CyberHoot Awards & Recognition

Cybrary Term of the Month

Tornado Cash is an Ethereum (ETH) mixer protocol that is used to improve transaction privacy by obscuring the on-chain link between the source and recipient of ether. Tornado Cash utilizes smart contracts that accept deposits made in ETH that are then withdrawn to other addresses. Since the withdrawal is made from the project’s smart contract liquidity pools, there is no way of knowing who the original sender is.

Tornado Cash generates a secret hash each time a user deposits assets. Their smart contracts then accept the deposit along with the hash, called a commitment. The commitment’s purpose is to identify the real sender and prove during the withdrawal process that the user in question owns the assets. By inputting the hash upon making the request, the user essentially confirms his identity while remaining anonymous on-chain to everyone else.
