Scaling Blockchain Privacy with Dynamic Sharding

At the present, the beacon chain has 7 fixed validator nodes (run by foundation), the remaining validator nodes are randomly assigned to shards (expected uniformly). The number of shards’ committee members is fixed at 32 for now, and will be dynamically but not excess 128 members in the third/fourth quarter this year.

Users will decide to stake to be a beacon or a shard validator. In future, the size of the beacon committee would be fixed in the range 128-512, with the expectation that total beacon validators are about 4 times more than its committee.
