There are two types of automatic Depots:
- Exchange Depots, which fetch data from Exchanges via API key
- Wallet Depots, which fetch data from the blockchain using a public key
For Depots that are connected to exchange via API, you only have to enter your API key and the associated secret one time in order to receive your transactions fully automated.
Wallet Depots are created via public key and import transactions directly from the blockchain into your Depot. Depending on the wallet or blockchain, different keys can be used.
On both Exchange and Wallet Depots, trades and balances are automatically read and synchronised directly from the source without you having to do anything. At the same time, this means that the asset balance of your Depot is not calculated on the basis of your transaction list (does not apply to the asset balance of the tax report).
Transactions are normally updated every few hours, balance every 30 minutes.
We are constantly working on offering API import for as many exchanges and wallets as possible to make using Blockpit as simple as possible.
However, some exchanges do not yet offer data import via API. In this case, Exchange Depots can in some cases also be filled manually by uploading the CSV files from the respective Exchange. In this case, the transactions and balances are only updated when you upload a new CSV file.
Manual Unsynced Depots
With manual Unsnced Depots, you must enter and edit all data yourself. Please note, however, that you must use the exchange time (UTC) when creating your transactions.
Transactions can be entered directly in the Depot via the New Transaction button in two ways:
- Manual entry of transactions
- Import via CSV/XLS template
The calculation of the asset balance in your Unsynced Depot is based purely on the transactions you have entered.
Note: Transactions can also be added manually to Exchange Depots.
