Users may experience:
  • CoinTracker is not correctly recording the amount that is not spent in a "send" transaction on UTXO blockchains such as Bitcoin and Cardano. Instead of showing the returned amount as a transfer, it is recorded as a receive and the crypto receives a new cost basis as if it were just purchased.
Expected behavior:
  • The expected CoinTracker behavior would be to create a send transaction for the spent amount (triggering a taxable event) and a transfer transaction for the unspent amount that was returned, retaining its original cost basis and age for gains calculations.
As a user, what should I do?
If you wish to make manual modifications to correct this, you'll enter two transactions and add the correct tags for send and transfer:
  • A send transaction for the original amount.
  • A transfer transaction for the unspent amount that is received back to your wallet address.
Alternatively, users can add xPub/yPub/zPub or Stake Keys instead of individual addresses to mitigate the behavior.
