core developers plan to implement a 64-fold increase in the maximum amount of staked Ether (ETH) required to become a validator, from 32 ETH to 2048 ETH while the minimum staking amount remain at 32 ETH.

The proposal was made during a June 15 Ethereum core developer consensus meeting by Ethereum Foundation researcher Michael Neuder. The researcher noted that although the current limit of 32 ETH allows more validators to join the Ethereum network, making it more decentralized, it also leads to an inflation of the validator set size.
