I'm sorry if this is a basic question. But will the new shard chains for Ethereum2.0 be PoW or PoS?
I know the plan is for Eth1 mainnet to "dock" onto the beacon chain eventually and be its own shard. But are all other new shards going to be PoS?

Shard chains are the main scalability feature that will initially consist of 64 chains and will grow over time as required. The main design goals in this phase revolve around creation, validation, and consensus of the data of shard chains. The state of each shard chain will be written periodically to the beacon chain.
