Usage

Fetch statistics about a specific token:

puts "#{res.symbol}: #{res.price}"
# => BTC: 15330.8
puts "#{res.name}: #{res.market_cap}"
# => Bitcoin: 256933859710.0

# => -1.03
puts res.percent_change(period: '24h')
# => 6.42

Or fetch statistics for all of the top 100 currencies (based on market cap):

res = CoinMarket::Ticker.all
puts res[0..10].map(&:name).join(', ')
# => Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Ripple, Litecoin, Cardano, IOTA, Dash, NEM, Monero, Bitcoin Gold
