KMS - Daemon mode and credit consumption

KMS in Daemon mode periodically checks for pending transactions every 5 seconds by default, costing 4 credits per minute. This means 4 (credits) _60 (minutes) _24 (hours) == 5760 credits/day.

On top of that, there's a cost to sign transactions at a rate of x1 credit for every 500 txID signature attempts.

To lower the baseline credit consumption, you may increase the periodicity checks.
