How to create a Lost transaction?

  1. Open your Blockpit Account and click on the top menu item Transactions.
  2. Now select + Transaction.
  3. Enter the Date and Time of the transaction.

    In case of a manually created transaction directly in the WebApp, use your local time.
    If the transaction is imported via CSV/Excel, use the standard exchange time UTC.

  4. Now select the Transaction Label Lost.

  5. Now enter the Integration, Asset and Amount. If you paid Fees, enter them with quantity and currency as well.

    Tip: In the input fields for assets, you can enter the short name (BTC) or long name (Bitcoin) as a search term to narrow down the search of the displayed list. If your asset is not selectable, you can get more information here.

  6. Finally, click Create to complete the process and display the transaction in the Integration.

If Lost is created as a manual transaction in a Manual Integration, it will have a direct impact on the displayed asset balance of your integration.

If Lost is created as a manual transaction in an Exchange or Wallet Integration, it will not directly affect the automatically and independently imported asset balance of your integration, but it will affect the final balance of your tax report.
