CryptoTrader.Tax offers 2 different options / templates for importing trades from exchanges or crypto platforms that are not currently supported.

  1. Simple Format - Manual Exchange Template
  2. Detailed Format - Manual Exchange Template

The "Simple Format", as discussed below, is best for entering simple trades where the fees are already built into the trade. In other words, trading fees have already been applied.

For exchanges that export trade history files with detailed fee information, it may be more useful to use the Detailed Format Manual Exchange Template.
