Clarification

With regards to the title, I came across the following paragraph in an article (https://www.thecoinrepublic.com/2020/02/15/tor-browser-to-recieve-50000-from-zcash/) :

The TOR browser is also used extensively used to send Cryptocurrency transactions. But because the Cryptocurrencies use an open public ledger, the user’s IP(Internet protocol) address, even though TOR masks it, can be determined. This puts the users at quite a big risk and leaves them exposed whilst under the impression that the TOR’s vast network securely protects them.

Is this true ?

I assume it’s referring to the rare case where the Tor exit node is compromised?

Right, guess its not clearly elaborated in the article.

Thanks!
