I am trying to Google the answer but cannot find any. What is the expected average block time for Ethereum 2.0 when it comes live (on the mainnet)?
I am aware that there is cabapility to do faster-than-on-chain transactions with Raiden Network, but I hope to be able to do it on-chain.
Average block time will depend on the minig algorithm, and there will be a change in this when transition to PoS happens.
In chain-based PoS, the algorithm pseudo-randomly selects a validator during each time slot (e.g. every period of 10 seconds might be a time slot), and assigns that validator the right to create a single block, and this block must point to some previous block (normally the block at the end of the previously longest chain), and so over time most blocks converge into a single constantly growing chain.
Does this mean the average blocktime will be 10 seconds? (If yes, why not set it to less than 1?)
