// yarn add @tatumio/tatum

import { TatumSDK, Eos, Network } from '@tatumio/tatum'

const tatum = await TatumSDK.init<Eos>({ network: Network.EOS })

const response = await tatum.rpc.getCurrencyStats({
  code: 'eosio.token',
  symbol: 'EOS'

await tatum.destroy() // Destroy Tatum SDK - needed for stopping background jobs
