You could still check the code of the client app. (If my hypothesis
that client code will be open source, but server code will not be. And
that crypto will be happening on the client.)

Additional note: I would like to see how they assure that what you
have on the client is really the code which you checked. And how they
will implement that the client code will also have payable addons.
Maybe those addons will be sandboxed or something inside a trusted
(open source) host (on the client). Or maybe the client will be
completely open source, together with addons, and they will verify
payment only on the server side. But then you have an issue of easier
linking between user and its real identity. Hm hm hm.

Tricky issues. :-)

So what architectural information about the system do we *know*?
