Beyond Inflation: Economic Data Infrastructure

About this event

Join us for a fireside chat with Stefan Rust, CEO of Truflation, for an in-depth conversation about building unbiased, technology-driven truth. We will discuss why accuracy and truth are essential for understanding inflation and value in a volatile world. Learn how blockchains and oracles are a critical component of web3 infrastructure and how these technologies can create a financial system that is transparent and fair.


6:00 PM to 6:15 PM -- Greetings and Introductions

6:15 PM to 7:00 PM -- Fireside Chat and Q&A

7:00 PM to 8:00 PM -- Networking and Happy Hour

Truflation built the first-of-its-kind infrastructure to provide unbiased financial data on chain to ensure faster decision-making.

Truflation is based on market price data collected from more than 40 different data sources, comprising +18 million data points to deliver essential censor-resistant data around inflation and its underlying components. It provides daily unbiased, data-driven inflation indexes and other economic metrics to financial products and applications through the Truflation Financial Index (Truflation) marketplace, dashboard, and APIs.

Most recently, the team announced the launch of their marketplace and are inviting smart contract developers to build using the Truflation Marketplace data during the Chainlink Fall 2022 Hackathon.

As Chainlink partners, Truflation has also become one of the four inaugural participants of Chainlink BUILD, a program that aims to accelerate the growth of early-stage and established projects within the Chainlink ecosystem by providing enhanced access to Chainlink services and technical support in exchange for commitments of network fees and other incentives to Chainlink service providers, such as stakers.

Truflation is an economic data aggregator serving independent, unbiased, real-time data on-chain and off-chain, which validates, harmonizes, and calculates outputs using open-source algorithms. Truflation’s indexes are a premium source of independent censorship-resistant financial and economic data on-chain. They power inflation-protected web3 applications and blockchain economies.

Chainlink is the industry standard for building, accessing, and selling oracle services needed to power hybrid smart contracts on any blockchain. Chainlink oracle networks provide smart contracts with a way to reliably connect to any external API and leverage secure off-chain computations for enabling feature-rich applications. Chainlink currently secures tens of billions of dollars across DeFi, insurance, gaming, and other major industries, and offers global enterprises and leading data providers a universal gateway to all blockchains.
