1. 1.
    Low Fees: Each shard is less expensive compared to the parent blockchain.
  2. 2.
    Big partner ecosystem: Ethereum has a large number of partner companies looking to improve different aspects of using and getting on to Ethereum.
  3. 3.
    More secure and decentralised: Shards are easy to run and the requirement to become a shard validator is not high. The number of Ethereum full nodes is around 6000 and the number of shards will only be more, making it more decentralised than Stellar.
  4. 4.
    Improved functionality: Since shards replicate the functionality of Ethereum-L1, the EVM and other features are available on any shard.
  5. 5.
    Faster transactions: Transaction processing is split into multiple shards and each shard can process the same amount of transactions faster since there are more processing units.
