That is a concern. And although they've arguably addressed it through
diversification in multiple jurisdictions, they're upfront about
focusing on business-class pseudonymity.

In anonymity space, they are far closer to VPNs than to Tor, I think.
Also, their mixes are fixed. So as with VPNs, there's a one-to-one
mapping of entry and exit IPs. Furthermore, their userbase is much
smaller than for Tor and popular VPN services.
