For now, Ethereum ecosystem has the most dynamic and viable players of all public blockchains, yet its high Gas fee and network congestion has always been denounced, which results in its decision on moving to 2.0 stage in order to thoroughly solve the congestion on-chain and improve the scalability of the Ethereum blockchain.
Here the core change is the transformation from PoW algorithm to PoS algorithm. And 2022 is a crucial year for Ethereum's plan on 2.0 phase, which could set the stage for Ethereum to become a world-class financial settlement layer and DApp infrastructure.
Staking of ETH is a key step in Ethereum's transition to 2.0. According to OKLink data, more than 10 million ETH have been staked to ETH 2.0 contract.
