 so it would probably be better to fix Onionoo instead.

 Hmm, to be precise, the dollar signs are not added by Onionoo. It simply
 copies over entries from relays‘ „family“ lines. See also
 [https://gitweb.torproject.org/torspec.git/tree/dir-spec.txt#n1230 dir-
 spec.txt]. But I have to admit that we‘re not including dollar signs in
 other fingerprints, including „fingerprint“ and „hashed_fingerprint“.
 Maybe we should indeed remove the dollar signs in Onionoo. That requires a
 major protocol change though, because we‘d be modifying an existing field.
 Should we do it?

 > Keep this ticket open though because Atlas needs some cleaning up once
 Onionoo fixes the issue.

 What cleaning up is that? Mind if we move this ticket to Metrics/Onionoo
 until the feature is implemented?
