In Ethereum 2.0 (Sharding and PoS), blocks are produced at a regular schedule, say once every
What does this time slot depend on? The number of validators in the network who deposited Ether? Is this time slot adjusted similar to the difficulty level of PoW (that is dependent on the total hashing power of the network)? Or it is a fixed value forever? If it is adjusted and is not fixed, is time slots duration dependent on the total deposited Ether in the network?
P.S. Regarding to the answer of
Lauri Peltonen: Do you also understood how / why 12 seconds has been chosen / calculated? For example, why not 10 seconds? or any other values? Meanwhile, I know that in Ethereum 2.0 there is no PoW and thus hashing power of the network does not matter, but also I said maybe as PoW difficulty is calculated based on hashing power of the network, here, time slot duration should be logically calculated based on some parameters in the network. What are those parameters?
