Usage

This library has 1 function you can use.
import slavery
list_of_transaction_record = slavery.get_transaction()
Additionally, some of the functions can return a sample of the Big Data using an extra argument. If you use this sampled Big Data, it may be much faster. When you are sure your code is correct, you can remove the argument to use the full dataset.
import slavery
# These may be slow!
list_of_transaction_record = slavery.get_transaction(test=True)
