The non-custodial privacy service has experienced a nearly 7,700% growth increase year-to-date, from $174,000 to $13.44 million.

Tornado Cash has been active since August 2019 and has four different types of mixer contracts supporting ETH, DAI, cDAI and USDC. The service is used to protect a user's identity by shielding the link between their withdrawal address and the one they used to deposit their assets.

Each mixer contract allows Tornado Cash users to choose between one of four fixed amounts. For example, for ETH, users can pick between 0.1 ETH, 1 ETH, 10 ETH or 100 ETH.
