Get fees for a specific transaction

The cost of a specific transaction on the blockchain is dependent on complexity of that transaction. The complexity of a transaction is expressed in the amount of "gas" that is required to execute this transaction. A more complex transaction, requires a higher gas-amount.
This means that the fee that needs to be paid for a specific transaction is the following:
fee-for-a-transaction = amount-of-gas-needed * gas-price-at-that-moment
To retrieve the gas needed to execute a certain blockchain transaction, the build transaction endpoint can be used.
This endpoint adds all the necessary details to a generic transaction request, like the necessary GAS fees, etc.
