Now we don’t need Ethereum 2.0, we need Rollups. After Rollups, Ethereum transaction volume can be increased by 100 times. Of course, long-term sharding is also needed, but this problem is not urgent now. The current value of Ethereum 2.0 is mainly to migrate to Pos. The plan is to first become a chain, and then Consider sharding again.”
