Keeping all your latest trades and transactions from cryptocurrency exchanges up to date ensures you have the most relevant data to make more informed investment decisions.

CoinTracking has several options to import trade data, but automatic API imports available for PRO and UNLIMITED accounts ensure that transactions on a variety of exchanges populate in your Trade Table without the need of constant manual imports. This gives you a simpler way to maintain and track the performance and value of your entire cryptocurrency portfolio.
