Realized and Unrealized Gains

Current unrealized and realized gain calculation for all your currencies including a coin-grouped summary.

Unrealized gain is the profit/loss you would achieve if you sell all your coins right now. Realized gain is the profit/loss you've already achieved with your sales.


This calculation is for experienced users. Hover over the Info icons on the right for additional information.

In order to correctly display the values on this page, it is imperative that all data has been entered correctly and completely into CoinTracking. If you encounter any problems, please read and follow the FAQs.

Possible problems and solutions

  • The amount of a coin does not match the value on the dashboard:
    The remaining amount of a coin can deviate in the gains calculation from the values on the dashboard, because deposits and withdrawals are not included.
  • This page is empty or a coin is missing:
    Gains are calculated from the value at purchase and the value at sale. If you do not have sales in your account, no profit will be displayed.
  • Gifts, mined coins and income are not charged with 0 USD:
    All incoming transactions such as gifts, mined coins and other income are calculated by default with the cost basis at the time of the transaction. If you would rather calculate with a cost basis of 0 USD, open the "Filter" and click on the corresponding trade type twice.
  • The cost basis seems wrong:
    If the cost basis is off, the transaction values could be wrong. Open the Enter Coins page and correct the value of the asset, if necessary (instruction).
  • Warnings for realized gains: It is imperative that all purchases and sales are entered correctly and completely in CoinTracking. If purchased coins are missing, this will lead to warnings and incorrect values for all gains calculations! (read more).
  • Hover the info icon in the upper right corner of each box for more information. Please also read the Gains FAQs if you have issues on this page.

You can find an explanation and examples on the Tax-Report page.



Currency:
Displays all values in either your account currency or in BTC.
We do not just convert the Fiat value into BTC, but we calculate the Bitcoin value of every single transaction.
Because of BTC price changes, it's possible, that your BTC gain is negative, but your Fiat gain positive.



Currency Type:
Select between digital currencies (BTC, ETH...), commodities (Gold, Silver...), real currencies (USD, EUR...) or all together.
We are recommending "Only digital currencies".



Hide all zero and negative amounts:
Enable, to hide all currencies with an amount less or equal 0 in the summary table.

Group all purchases by day:
Enable, to group all purchases by day. It will also greatly reduce the number of items in your final gains report.
  Conversion:
In order to calculate your gain and tax, all your trades that are not in your FIAT currency, must be converted into your FIAT currency at the time of the transaction.
We strongly recommend to use the 'Best Prices' setting.

Transaction Prices: will convert the 1st part of your trade-pair into FIAT:
Counterpart Prices: will convert the 2nd part of your trade-pair into FIAT
Best Prices (recommended): will convert in this order:
1. FIAT currencies (USD, EUR, GBP...)
2. Crypto currencies and commodities based on their market cap

Example 1: Buy 1 BTC for 3000 USD (assuming USD is your FIAT currency)
- Transaction Prices: will convert 1 BTC into USD
- Counterpart Prices: will use 3000 USD (no conversion here)
- Best Prices: will use 3000 USD (no conversion here), since USD has a higher priority than BTC

Example 2: Buy 60 ETH for 1 BTC (assuming USD is your FIAT currency)
- Transaction Prices: will convert 60 ETH into USD
- Counterpart Prices: will convert 1 BTC into USD
- Best Prices: will convert 1 BTC into USD, since BTC has a higher priority than ETH
