Inflation rates are sky high

The official US inflation is now the highest in 31 years, with many product prices increasing rapidly. The 2021 Thanksgiving dinner cost 14% more than last year. In November 2021, you paid 51% more for gas, 24% more for steak, 20% more for bacon, and 12% more for eggs.

There is a lot of controversy around the government's inflation index

Governments and central banks are responsible for gathering information, calculating metrics, and reporting to the public. The way inflation is calculated changes often, favoring methods that report lower inflation rates.

The newest inflation indexes currently being tested by the Bureau of Labor Statistics report even lower inflation. But why would the government lowball a metric so crucial for the economy?

We've created a custom index to find out the true inflation rate

Headline inflation you encounter in the news is the yearly change in CPI (Consumer Price Index). We've researched, deconstructed, and remastered the official CPI to create a metric that reflects the true price change in the market. The resulting US Truflation index offers daily inflation updates using the latest real market data, transparent and available to everyone through decentralized blockchain oracle.
