Leading Terra 2.0 swap protocol, Astroport has opened the gateway to the Astral assembly. According to a blog post, the protocol revealed that the Astral Assembly is open to developers within its community. With the Astral Assembly, developers can create governance proposals to strengthen the protocol and allocate funds in the DAO treasury. Also, it will help them vote on active governance proposals. The aforementioned activities can only manifest when users stake the Astro Tokens. 

The development would help migrate total governance on the Protocol’s Terra 2.0 smart contracts to the assembly. Henceforth, the Astral Assembly will emerge as admin for smart contracts of new pairs built on Astroport. Admins can also initiate the migration of tokens from the Astroport multisig directly to a particular DAO treasury.

The Astroport team disclosed that the presence of the protocol on Terra 2.0 help actualizes its intention of being a decentralized platform. Meanwhile, the team revealed that users can now improve the protocol from anywhere around the globe if they fulfill specific criteria. All Astroport improvements are programmed to pass through the Astroport Improvement Proposals (AIPs) process.

Through the AIPs process, xASTRO owners are given the privilege to build, provide feedback, and vote during any proposal that seeks the development of the protocol. The process includes creating and submitting ideas on the protocol’s forum in a document format. Possible alterations to the proposed initiative must be carried out within seven days based on opinions from community members.

Subsequently, the proposer can proceed to submit the proposal for an on-chain poll. During the period of the poll, the proposer is mandated to lock 30,000 xASTRO tokens in Astroport’s smart contracts. Meanwhile, the tokens will go back to the proposer upon the completion of the poll, irrespective of the outcome. 

The team disclosed that the polling duration is within four days. Upon the success of the proposal and polling exercise, if approved, the proposal will be adopted within two days. Rejection of the proposal doesn’t amount to its end. If interested, the proposer can submit it up to three times. 

The announcement states that a community member must possess xASTRO for at least a block before submitting the recommendation. The team revealed that only eligible community members who have fulfilled the criteria are qualified to vote. 

However,  proposers aren’t eligible to vote regarding their submissions. The team announced that it’s compulsory to carry out all polling processes on-chain. Lastly, the team specified that a successful polling process must have a Quorum of more than 10% of votable tokens. To adopt a proposal, the initiative must have more than 50% of the total votes in its favor.
