Limit Requests to Avoid 429 Exception

See original GitHub issue

At times, the requests that karl makes to infura cause the following error:

ERROR:Karl:Exception: 429 Client Error: Too Many Requests for url:
<traceback object at 0x7f0edc560688> 

If karl determined the minimum time it could send requests to infura without triggering the 429 error, it could work within that bound and still make progress while not halting the execution of the program entirely due to a 429 error.

Nice. I’ll check it out. As a short-term fix, I found that changing the value in this line to 5 also prevents the 429 error from happening thus far (Note: lower numbers could work as well, I haven’t tried).

I’ll try and come up with a multi-threaded version and do a pull request to see if you like it. It would probably only be ~10 lines added at most.

I’ll close this until there’s more activity.
