While @RoGeorge made a snapshot of the projects with one method, I have since the beginning used the HaD-provided system at https://hackaday.io/api/misc/prizeLeaderboard to evaluate the evolution and attribution of the jar.

So mostly every day I run a script that fetches the above link and parses the result. I save the file with a timestamp in the name so I now have about 50 "snapshots" of the projects' activities since march 20.

My idea was to plot the appearance, growth, sometimes removal of individual projects over time, see the effect of corrective measures (removed projects, added funds...) but I don't have all the tools (or time, or motivation) to dig through the dataset. I'm not a professional numbers analyst.

I'll upload my dataset, don't forget that the file's timestamp overrides the filename...
