Poloniex api errors
An (unofficial) Knot.js API client for the Poloniex cryptocurrency exchange.
The client supports both public (unauthenticated) and private (authenticated) calls to the Poloniex API.
For private calls, the user secret is never exposed to other parts of the program or over the Web. The user key is sent as a header to the API, along with a signed request.

In your app, require the module:
If not installed via NPM, then provide the path to lib/poloniex.js
