Show Exchange and Dynamic Fee

Currently, we only show the total sUSD value of the fees charged in their entirety when traders open a Futures position, without the user understanding the composition of the fee. We now display the current assets base exchange fee as well as the dynamic fee, if applicable. If you are trading directly on Kwenta, a small icon will show the Dynamic Exchange fee charged for your trade. If it is not shown, no dynamic exchange fee is levied.

Confirm/Close Order Modals: Improve Gas Price #850

The Confirm Order and Close Order modals, still use the "Gas Price" indicated in Gwei, which isn’t intuitive on L2 Optimism where transactions cost are minuscule. To streamline the UI, we now show on both occasions Deposit/Withdrawing margin or confirming an order the Gas Fee estimated in USD.
