Analysts are bullish on Ethereum's growth. The transition from proof-of-work (PoW) to proof-of-stake (PoS), also known as "The Merge," is scheduled for launch in 2022. The development team has revealed that "sharding" will be shipped in an update early next year.
Nikhil Shamapant, the author of "The Triple Halving" narrative of Ethereum, is bullish on ETH and shared his opinion on "sharding."
Soooo the Ethereum website on sharding says they plan to ship in 2022 - it was last updated 2 months ago.— Squish (@SquishChaos) October 11, 2021
That's like a year sooner than I was hearing? I actually just assumed sharding couldn't be a part of the triple halving thesis ...was I wrong?https://t.co/a0h0R8j5Qy
