The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) has proposed new rules that could have a significant impact on crypto mixers, including Bitcoin's CoinJoin. If these rules are implemented, they would classify the mixing of virtual currencies as a major concern for money laundering. FinCEN's proposal is a response to concerns that malicious actors are using crypto-mixing services to launder illicit funds. The proposed rules would require financial institutions to maintain records and reports related to transactions involving digital asset tumblers, and operators of crypto tumblers would be subject to KYC, AML, and CFT requirements. These proposed rules are based on Section 311 of the USA Patriot Act, which allows the Treasury Secretary to take measures against entities classified as primary money laundering concerns. CoinJoin services like Tornado Cash and popular implementations like CoinJoinXT and Wasabi Wallet could be affected by these rules, potentially making it more challenging for users to utilize such services legally. The proposed rules will undergo a 90-day public comment period before they could be enacted.
