Truflation was one of the sponsors of the Chainlink Spring 2022 Hackathon, offering builders a prize of US$10,000.

Chainlink Spring 2022 Hackathon took place from April 22 to May 27, 2022. The virtual event got ~8500 signups and 308 final projects that were submitted to qualify for the $550,000 prize pool. It was the biggest hackathon ever.

The winners were announced on June 8, 2022, during the hackathon's closing ceremony that was streamed online.

Truflation Winners

Truflation got an amazing 29 project submissions, most of which were absolutely brilliant. Out of those, we selected the top 6 that used the Truflation oracle available on Chainlink and tied their projects to the emerging issue of global inflation.

  • 1st Prize $5000
  • 2nd Prize $3000
  • 3rd Prize $2000
  • Runner-ups: an opportunity for grants and bounties from us to continue their work

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.
