Yes, thank you Anil!

Side note, I have worked on both the tech and ux side of wallets....

I would not consider the UX stuff I am about to share canonical,
authoritative, or comprehensive... and I hesitate to share it because bias
in design is a real problem.

However, I am happy to answer questions as they arise related to wallet UX
/ security.

Here are links to some of the open source UI components we have worked on:
