Multiple fallback options for historical crypto prices #224
As can be seen in a recent tweet I made it seems that Cryptocompare will phase out their public API and enforce API key authentication. That presents a problem for apps like rotkehlchen that will have to force their users to get an API key just to get historical price data.
Edit: Vlad from cryptocompare tweeted they will still keep the public API around without API key authentication for tens of thousands of requests per month.
This issue aims to find ways to allow more options for rotkehlchen users while also allowing them to input a cryptocompare API key if they so desire.

APIs for historical crypto prices
Thank you @vcealicu . I noted that in the issue and really appreciate it. I expect to have a refactored Price Historian with multiple API backends and cryptocompare being the default first choice.
