Does anyone know which timezone is used by the streak counter and the heatmap? I just lost a 74 day streak even though I finished a challenge by 15:45PM KST (UTC +0900). The streak shows only 1 day but today’s square on the heatmap is colored green, and on the timeline the challenge is recorded as being completed today as well. It seems like the streak counter is using one timezone, while the heatmap and timeline are using a second timezone. Can someone please confirm? It’s really demoralizing as I was taking pride in watching the number grow every day and being able to share it with friends, family, and potential employers.
I understand that it may not be a high priority to fix, so at least knowing the rules of the streak would really help me understand and adjust my coding accordingly.

I observed how challenges are recorded during the last week and basically saw challenge dates and streak are going by UTC and the heatmap is using EST…
If it helps, I completed yesterday’s challenge at around 13:00-14:00PM KST (UTC +0900) and did today’s at 15:45 KST. Would love to know what happened or at least how I could avoid it in the future.
