Improve fee estimation #1972
Current fee estimations come form https://bitcoinfees.earn.com/api/v1/fees/recommended which provides fee estimates on the high end in order to guarantee settlement within the specified time.
We'd like to use something the provides lower rates / lower probability.
Consider using https://api.lightning.community/#estimatefee (new in lnd 0.6) and falling back to earn.com if that api isn't available.
