The modest crypto rally post the Fed rate hike fizzled as renewed macroeconomic worries preoccupied investor sentiment. The third 75-basis points rate hike by the Fed renewed concerns of a painful recession, dampening market sentiment and driving down the prices of digital assets.

Crypto mixer Tornado Cash has been on Thursday relisted on GitHub, a website and cloud-based service that helps developers store and manage their code. This follows a recent OFAC clarification that interacting with open-source code itself, in a way that does not involve a prohibited transaction with Tornado Cash, is not prohibited.
