Every time I need to make Bitcoin payments, I have to switch many times between Bitcoin Core and my separate Bitcoin currency converter. For example, to see how much that transaction fee is in USD.
It would be very useful if it could be made to display a fiat currency instead.
Since this requires reliance on a third-party service, I understand why this is not built in.
However, can't I enter in the configuration file something like:
currency_converter_url = 'http://127.0.0.1/btcconverter/'
And then Bitcoin Core could make requests such as:
In order for my own script to output how much that many satoshis are in USD currently, so that it can display it to me.
Is this possible? It would be extremely useful.
