Now that we’ve had a few days to catch up from the astonishing finish of the second round of #SciFund, I’m going to do a few posts comparing some of the basic stats between round 1 and round 2.
|Round||Days||Projects||Projects funded||Percent funded||Total raised|

(You’ll see a few graphs like this. The small black square is the mean. The box shows where 50% of the values fall, and the line dividing the box in two is the median. The whiskers show where 95% of the data is, and the little stars show the biggest and smallest values.)
Round 2 participants were not asking for as much cash as those in the first round. This might be because after round 1, participants had a better idea of what could be raised by crowdfunding.
