Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin proposed a solution that allows you to quickly get rid of the Proof-of-Work (PoW) algorithm chain and move everything in Ethereum 2.0 to Proof-of-Stake (PoS).

According to him, the eth1 system can exist as a zero shard in eth2.

Validators who choose to participate in eth1 will be able to register as friendly. They are expected to support the full eth1 node in addition to the eth2 node.

A full eth1 node will load all blocks of the zero shard and maintain the updated state of the old circuit.

Buterin believes that his proposal does not make any changes to the planned procedure for the transition from eth1 to eth2. Only software for stateless clients and witness size changes in the eth1 protocol are required.
