'bitcoincash:qp0hamw9rpyllkmvd8047w9em3yt9fytsunyhutucx'
>>>
>>> k.get_balance('usd')
'2'
>>>
>>> # Let's donate a dollar to CoinSpice.io
>>> outputs = [
>>>     ('bitcoincash:qz69e5y8yrtujhsyht7q9xq5zhu4mrklmv0ap7tq5f', 1, 'usd'),
>>>     # you can add more recipients here
>>> ]
>>>
>>> k.send(outputs)
