Command line tool to interact with the BitShares network

positional arguments:
sub-command help
set Set configuration
addkey Add a new key to the wallet
listkeys List available keys in your wallet
listaccounts List available accounts in your wallet
getbalance Get balances of available account(s)
transfer Transfer funds from your wallet to someone else
approve approve funds from your wallet to someone else

optional arguments:
-h, --help show this help message and exit
--node NODE Websocket URL for public BitShares API (default: "wss://")
--rpcuser RPCUSER Websocket user if authentication is required
--rpcpassword RPCPASSWORD
Websocket password if authentication is required
--nobroadcast Do not broadcast anything

### Adding keys

airsign comes with its own encrypted wallet to which keys need to be added:

airsign addkey <posting-wif-key>

On first run, you will be asked to provide a new passphrase that you
will need to provide every time you want to post on the BitShares network.
If you chose an *empty* password, your keys will be stored in plain text
which allows automated posting but exposes your private key to your
local user.

### List available Keys and accounts

airsign listkeys

This command will give the list of public keys to which the private keys
are available.

airsign listaccounts

This command tries to resolve the public keys into account names registered
on the network (experimental).

### Get Balances

The command `getbalance` only takes optional arguments if you want to
see the balance of a specific account, else it will show all balances
for which a key has been added to the wallet (see above)

$ airsign getbalance
Please unlock your existing wallet!
| Amount | Asset |
| 61557.53766 | BTS |
| 1e-07 | OPEN.BTC |
| 107.5035 | MKR |
| Amount | Asset |
| 9993.84531 | BTS |

### Transfer

Transfers can be initiated from any account for which the *active key*
is installed. The `--amount` parameter can be applied several times to
send different assets from the same origin to the same recepient. The
command supports encrypted memos. If your account has a distinct memo
key (usually identical to the active key), then you need to add that key
to your wallet aswell.

airsign transfer --from <fromaccount> --to <recepient> --amount "1 USD" --amount "2 BTS" --memo <Text>

The global `--nobroadcast` flag can be added before `transfer` to
prevent airsign to broadcast the transaction to the BitShares network:

airsign --nobroadcast transfer --from <fromaccount> --to <recepient> --amount "1 USD" --amount "2 BTS" --memo <Text>

### Approval of Proposals

Any proposal can be approved using airsign:

airsign approve <proposal-id>

The default account will be used, unless stated otherwise with
an `--account` parameter. The proposal-id must habe the form `1.10.x`.
