Open source client
Astar’s client is open source and can be found on their github repository.
The Sudo pallet is active and is owned by a 3-of-5 multisig consisting of members of the Astar Foundation.
Astar allows for any collator with enough stake and nominations to join the decentralized collator set.
Astar governance is done off-chain via their forum. Members of the forum who are active and attain a “Level 2” membership by posting on the forum are granted voting rights for voting on proposals.
