First, Chandan, in his post “How do I track my local/cold/hardware wallet? Why is it showing zero balance?” requested:
“If you have other coins in cold wallets which we do not yet support, please let us know which ones so we can prioritize adding local wallet support for those blockchains.”
Here is my list: STRAT DGB KMD ZEN DCR
Q: I assume that when I received free coins by Air Drop or Coinbase Earn, I should manually adjust the Cost Basis to “0,” if necessary? Does it matter if the stated grant from Coinbase was $10, but I received ~ $9.96?
Q: I have added the xPub addresses for two Bitcoin accounts–BTC 1 and BTC 2.If I go to Portfolio>Wallets, and check the balance for BTC 1, it matches (close enough) what Ledger says. But my BTC 2 balance reads “0.” Chandan also addressed this issue in the aforementioned post.
How do I know my address is correct? I copied and pasted the xPub address from BTC 2 Advanced Logs. I tried to do it again, to make sure. CoinTracker wouldn’t let me, because it had already been added.
Does it really have a non-zero balance? According to Ledger (and memory), it has a substantial balance. (I do not see how to check this with the BTC Explorer. I just don’t know how to use that.) Back to CoinTracker, if I open the Wallet, then the list of Transactions, they match what Ledger says. Moreover, each of those txs has in information icon. If I hover over that, I see the remaining balance, after that tx. Following all the way up to the last tx, I find there a substantial balance of BTC. So the Transaction list knows it’s there, but the Wallet balance does not! What can I do?
Q: Here’s the hard one: The Changelly .csv file I uploaded to CoinTracker shows a Total Fee of .25 for every tx, without naming the Unit used. (My records show a variety of amounts, but I’m never sure what’s accurate, what belongs to which leg of the tx, etc. The blockchain txs only give me a fee rate.) CoinTracker has interpreted all of these fees as .25 of the receiving coin. This makes no sense. In the case of .25 BTC, that yields a Fee of $2,xxx.xx! Yet this seems to not affect the Cost Basis at all! How should I edit these Changelly fees?
BTW, I’ve had to do considerable tx editing, when Changelly or ShapeShift was used, but I think I figured it out, except for the above.
Thanks for your help. I think I’m almost there!
