Question on sharding

Etherum Reddit

Reddit / Etherum Reddit 44 Views


I was not able to google an answer to my question. I understand that there will be a beacon chain, which has mainly the function of providing a heartbeat but also will be a referee.

Can someone explain for one simple example how shards would work ?

  • A very simple example would be ERC20 token transfer. Who "choses" the shard?
  • Will one ERC20 token live on one shard or can tokens be transferred from one to another?
  • What about the next crypto kitty ? Will it live on one shard or could it occupy several shards?

Thank you
