Many applications need to deal with different currencies used in payments that they may take, so they may need to convert money amounts between different currencies.

Often those applications use remote APIs that rely on remote exchange conversion APIs to work well.

If for some reason those APIs may not be reachable when the application needs to use the conversion exchange rate values, the application may fail to operate, thus leading to eventual financial losses.

This package provides a more reliable alternative based on its own API to obtain the conversion exchange rates, thus avoiding to rely so much on external APIs.
