It seems the sync process is tediously slow with it's verification. I do know of the bootstrap file, but I'm not sure how secure this is (How to synchronize the GUI wallet using the blockchain bootstrap seems to state that verification is disabled for this)? There isn't even a known hash given for the bootstrap file?

Is there a known state of the blockchain that is hashed / verified somewhere?
