Ethereum POS problem - it seems many individuals feel ethereum is not decentralized because of Coinbase and Kraken having such a large share. Would the Verge upgrade put these doubts to rest?

I have been seeing a lot of FUD recently regarding many individual stating how most processing, [more than 40% of transactions](https://cointelegraph.com/news/40-ethereum-pos-nodes-are-controlled-by-two-addresses-says-santiment-data) and adding new blocks are happening on two addresses. It’s possible this is because of the exchanges noted above allow simplified staking for its users. My question is: following the Verge upgrade, assuming that it will take far less resources to run, would it be easier for anyone to run an ethereum node?
