COMPATIBILITY: Please use Python 3.6+. Untested on Windows: ensure all tests pass before using this package regardless.

It's super easy to get started. In your Python shell, do:

from block_io import BlockIo

block_io = BlockIo('API KEY', 'SECRET PIN', API_VERSION)

# print the account balance
print block_io.get_balance()

# print all addresses on this account
print block_io.get_my_addresses()
