If you had to manually add all your crypto transactions to your getquin account until now, we have good news for you! From now on you can automatically add your cryptos from Binance to getquin via API.


getquin tries to represent your investments on Binance as accurately as possible, yet there are some limitations:

  • getquin only imports buy, sell, send, receive and staking transactions. Other transactions like margin trades are not supported.
  • getquin does not import cash.
  • If you have sent cryptos from your Binance to your wallet, getquin will import this transaction as a "send transaction". This transaction involves the realization of gains and losses that would not normally occur with such a transfer. getquin is working to better represent this issue in the future.

If you have any feature requests, please feel free to add them to our feedback tool: https://feedback.getquin.com/.

FAQ:


What is the reason that my Binance portfolio in getquin does not exactly match the one in Binance?
getquin only accepts buy, sell, send, receive and staking transactions. Other transactions like margin trades or trades are not supported yet.


Will future transactions be automatically taken over?
Yes, all supported transactions will be automatically taken over. An update takes place every hour.

Why are price gains or losses realized in a "send transaction"?
Often cryptocurrencies are bought on an exchange and then sent to a wallet for safekeeping. However, since getquin does not know whether you are the owner of the wallet to which the coins were sent, getquin must assume that the coins were sent for the purchase of goods, for example. This is to be equated with a sales transaction and leads to the realization of price gains or losses. getquin is working on the best possible presentation of this situation in the future.
