A bit of bitcointip’s statistics.

Hi. I discovered this subreddit fairly recently, and bitcointip was one of the coolest bots I’ve seen in a while. Since the tips can be verified, there is a lot of data in the bot’s comments user page. I decided to parse as much as I can, starting with the newest, and going back.
