I answered this question with a bounty leaderboard.

To the question, should the site have an area where you can see a bounty leaderboard (monthly, yearly)? Yay, nay, waffles?

If anyone is really curious to know, senshin has made a Bounty (Spent) Leaderboard using data provided by the Stack Exchange Data Explorer. – Ambo100 Apr 14 '15 at 9:02

I don't think there's an obvious benefit to SO to having a bounty leaderboard. The bounty questions get plenty of exposure as it is. Sure, it's a nice bit of statistics, and some people might get a warm fuzzy feeling pretending to be Han Solo, but is the impact on SO positive, neutral, or negative?

Pollyanna, I thought making people happy was your modus vivendi, nonetheless waffles agrees, I do not think there is enough scale here to make the list too interesting. – waffles Jan 28 '10 at 23:25

We should have a bounty leaderboard if only to expose me as a greedy, greedy bastard. It's the only way I'll learn.
