I am challenging myself tomorrow to dive into the blockchain database to find out how many rewards in practice are given out each day... And if this has changed after today's fork.
I was having today some fun with @furion`s SteemData nonQGL database trying to figure a way to measure

The higher the popularity_score is, the most popular is the user.
To reduce the number of samples I restricted the search to accounts with more than
500000 VESTS, so do not under if you do not find yourself in the table.
You can see the results in here:
Do not take this table too seriously, it i just a small experiment to initiate some discussion about ways to measure popularity and influence in the network.
Also, if you are interested, here is the small piece of code I wrote for it:
The sbds project is the official database layer for accessing a local, read-only version of the Steem blockchain. It is developed and maintained by Steemit, Inc. and can be confugured to use SQLite, Postgres, and MySQL.
gem allows you to access an
sdbs instance with
post = Sbds::Comment.find_by(author: 'inertia', permlink: 'one-post-at-a-time')
