Sure but I saw lots of bitcoin people being quite eager to defend it recently! Definitely not all, but.... not few either.

I've long supported "teresting" as the opposite of "interesting" / synonym of "boring". Usage example: listening to the presentations in that banker conference was a teresting experience!

There's plenty of non-security-critical *properties* that wallets have, for example details about how their UI works and how you actually get to the point where you are making the payment.

There's no need to formally verify non-security-critical properties.

For a simple wallet, the spec would just say something like "unless button X is pressed the wallet broadcasts nothing, if button X is pressed then it broadcasts a transaction with some contents based on fields Y and Z; the privkey is used only as an input to the SIGN algorithm"

I think there are groups trying to make it more efficient by enabling syncing to head in O(1) time via zk snarks.

Agree! And programmatically allowing sudden updates that fix zero days while preventing sudden updates that *introduce* zero days seems unsolvable.

The tech is almost there for someone to release a closed source software package with a zk snark of a formal prover proving that it doesn't screw over the user in some way (eg. a crypto wallet proving security). Not sure how I feel about this but it will happen at some point...

Realistically, the default download pointing to a smart contract that contains a hash that can only be updated with a 30 day lead time.
