It doesn't matter what base (e or 10, say) is used for an Exponential Curve Fit   y = a*ebx, because the term b would simply absorb the conversion factor between the bases, i.e.,

        y = 3*e5 x = 3*10(0.43429*5*x) = 3*102.17147 x

so using one base or another is just a matter of taste or convenience if you lack some of the functions. Mathematically, there's no difference.
