Relevant Commits

I used and CoinMarket API to convert the Steem/SBD based on the current value of a currency. First, I retrieve the value of Steem/SBD in US dollars using the CoinMarket API. Then, I retrieve all the currencies in and set USD as the base parameter. Lastly, I multiplied the value of Steem/SBD in US dollars with the current value of the selected currency.
