Ethereum Technical Analysis

Validated, staking on eth2: #3 – Sharding Consensus | Ethereum Foundation Blog

Specifically, eth2 implements many shard chains, where each shard has similar capabilities to the eth1 chain….At any one time, each validator is a member of exactly one beacon chain and one shard chain committee, and is called on to make an attestation exactly once per epoch – where an attestation is a vote for a beacon chain block that has been proposed for a slot….This is possible since, instead of having to check votes and signatures for beacon blocks and shard blocks separately, nodes need only do the math on attestations to be informed about the state of the beacon chain and of every shard chain….For a node to validate the beacon chain and all of the shard chains, it only needs to look at the aggregated attestations from each of the committees.
