The Ethereum community is divided on the best way to handle the imminent launch of Ethereum 2.0. The most likely scenario will see Ethereum and Ethereum 2.0 run as two separate but connected blockchains, each with its own token. An alternative scenario would see Ethereum incorporated as a shard of Ethereum 2.0. The situation has some similarities to the contentious Bitcoin Segwit2x debates of 2017.
