Last week, Pebble became the most funded Kickstarter project of all time, raising more than $5.5 million in a matter of days.
While Pebble's monster haul is an exception at Kickstarter, it could quickly become a standard.
VentureBeat's Ben Popper charted every successfully funded Kickstarter project so far in 2012.
"Based on that data, Kickstarter is on pace to raise around $300 million this year, triple what it did in 2011," he writes

Not bad for a four year old startup.
