The upgrade will take effect in three phases and span a couple of years. Although full-blown scalability only becomes evident with the implementation of the last phase, the foremost phase is also as important. The first phase will mark the unveiling of Ethereum’s Proof-of-Stake (POS) Beacon Chain, laying the path for the next phase introduction of scalability via sharding, and the eventual merging of the ETH and ETH 2.0 network.
