Didn't Ichinojo have more sponsors than nearly every other hiramaku for a long time (aside from Endo)

I seem to remember he was pretty popular, even doing commercials. I guess they ran for the hills when he went 6-9 back to back.

As he first stormed into makuuchi, he got a sponsor -  kesho mawashi and kensho

Ichinojo for the first time now has his fixed kensho for each day, 30 for the whole basho by Oyatsu(=snack)-Company, the maker of Baby Star Ramen - a noodle snack for kids, for which Ichinojo will make CMs.
 

but when he didn't fulfill the expectations (of at least being on ozeki runs) - they abandoned him

Ichinojo has no fixed kensho on his bouts anymore - baby star ramen has given up on him

I have a question, does the source you're using provide the complete list or just the top 10 you're posting ?

Nikkan only posts the top 10 - Sponichi just in the printed/full paper has all data of the day. Nikkan gives a (more or less)  full list on the next Nikkan banzuke

2073 kensho have been applied for so far - the record for most at a regional basho of 1825 last year Haru is in reach - but that basho actually had 2130 applied for at first.

A new record for most at a regional basho this time -  1938 kensho http://www.sanspo.com/sports/news/20190324/sum19032416560006-n1.html

why so much less than the 2073 which initially had been applied for remains unexplained - no additional kyujo happened

I was looking at the nikkan banzuke with the figures from last basho and I was wondering how is calculated the 持ち給金. Tochinoshima's number is pretty high but he didn't have any kensho last basho as he was in Juryo, besides I read somewhere that the salary is the same for all regular makuuchi rikishi and gets higher for the sanyaku guys so I guess it's not that either. Can anyone explain to me how it works?

Kensho don't contribute to the mochikyukin number, those are one-time payments only (though part of the withheld amount contributes to their retirement pay).

Wikipedia has a good mochikyukin article if you need an explanation.

The numbers are outdated, but here's how it works:

Mochikyukin, aka hoshokin, did not change with the salary raise.  Each point is still worth 4000 yen per basho.  I don't remember the history of the increase of the multiplier (though I think I've seen it somewhere) but I seem to recall it changes in much greater jumps, much less frequently.

The Japanese wikipedia and a few other sites give the following changes:

until 1969: 1000x
until 1984: 1500x
until 1997: 2500x
current: 4000x

The nikkan Banzuke is out, I believe all the numbers are Hatsu + Haru right ?

https://www.nikkansports.com/m/battle/sumo/data/sm-ranking_m.html

Right - Haru is the easiest banzuke: the proper result for Hatsu. For the Haru (and later) results, some arranging is needed to get the difference to last basho and with it the (more or less) full ranking.

I've made a PDF file to include the data Akinomaki provided for both Hatsu and Haru. Green mean the number of kensho is up from the previous basho, red means it's down, grey means it's the same. Note:  I've included Takagenji as I've seen him get at least one kensho during one of his bouts up but maybe that number is not correct.
