Our winners:

  1. Inflotto — a decentralized inflation lottery
  2. Plation — inflation prediction market
  3. I-Bond — inflation-linked bonds

Runner ups:

  • Haptic DAO — software for the visually impaired that helps trade and read Truflation data online (also a winner of the 20,000 social impact award from Chainlink)
  • Hybridz — delta optimization software
  • Squinf — inflation futures

The winners of the Truflation challenge during the Chainlink 2022 Hackathon were announced by Patrick Collins, who also led many of the workshops and tutorials to help builders learn to use Chainlink and create web3 apps on the blockchain.

Chainlink Hackathon workshops remain available on the Chainlink's youtube, including our own tutorial on why and how to stream Truflation's data from Chainlink into smart contracts. Patrick also created a complete blockchain development tutorial for beginners.

Truflation's data is now compatible with Ethereum, Avalanche, Polygon, and BNB Chain to make it easier for the builders.
