You can download your transaction history report by following these instructions.
Once you download the report to your computer or phone, you can open the comma-delimited file (CSV) using most commercially-available spreadsheet or text editing software.
The file will include any confirmed transactions you had on your Abra wallet during the course of 2016 and/or 2017. If you didn't have any confirmed transactions in that time period, the file will not be available for download. 2018 transactions will not be included in this file.
Here are a few tips in interpreting the report:
- Each wallet has its own report. If you had multiple Abra wallets with confirmed transactions in 2017 or 2016, you will need to restore each wallet and download the associated file.
- Certain transactions may be split into more than one row in the report, if there was more than one transaction type (e.g., transfer, buy, sell) taking place within the same transaction. Examples will be provided below.
- The home currency shown on the report is derived from the phone number provided on the Abra app. If your country's fiat currency is not among the 50+ fiat currencies supported by Abra, your home currency will default to US Dollars (USD). Your home currency is important if you are using the report for tax purposes. Please note that we are not able to regenerate your transaction history under a different home currency
- There may be small rounding errors in the report. Fiat currencies are rounded to 2 decimals, and cryptocurrencies to 8 decimals
The report contains the following columns:
- Transaction date (UTC): the date and time in which the transaction took place, in UTC timezone
- Transaction ID: a unique identifier for the transaction. Please note that the same transaction ID may be present in more than one row in the report, in case the transaction combined different transaction types, e.g., an inbound transfer and a buy
- Transaction type: inbound transfer, outbound transfer, buy or sell. Certain transactions may include 2 or 3 different transaction types
- Description: an explanation of the transaction, including additional detail, if available
- Product: the currency being transacted, e.g., USD, BTC, PHP, ETH
- Quantity: the quantity of the product being transacted. The quantity is calculated after fees for inbound transfers (when fees are applicable), and before fees for outbound transfers (when fees are applicable)
- Fees: any fees incurred in the transaction, expressed in the same currency as the product
- Rate: the exchange rate between the product being transacted and your home currency
- Amount: the amount transacted, expressed in your home currency. ThThe amount is always the Quantity multiplied by the Rate
Here are a few examples of when a single transaction might be split into multiple rows (examples use illustrative rates):
- Example 1: a 1,000 USD bank deposit to buy 0.1 BTC, for a user with USD home currency. This would show as:
- Row 1: Inbound transfer with product USD, quantity of 1,000, rate of 1.0, and the amount of 1,000
- Row 2: Buy product BTC, quantity of 0.1, rate of 10000.0, and amount of 1,000
- Example 2: a 1,000 USD bank withdrawal of 0.1 BTC, for a user with USD home currency. This would show as:
- Row 1: Sell product BTC, quantity 0.1, rate of 10000.0, amount of 1,000
- Row 2: Outbound transfer with product USD, quantity of 1,000, rate of 1.0, and amount of 1,000
- Example 3: a 1,000 USD bank deposit to buy 0.1 BTC, for a user with PHP home currency. This would display as:
- Row 1: Inbound transfer with product USD, quantity of 1,000, rate of 50.0, and amount of 50,000 (because the home currency is PHP, not USD)
- Row 2: Sell of product USD, with quantity 1,000, rate of 50.0, and amount of 50,000
- Row 3: Buy of product BTC, with quantity 0.1, rate of 50000.0, and amount of 50,000
- Example 4: currency exchange from 1 BTC to 10 ETH, for a user with home currency USD. This would display as:
- Row 1: Sell product BTC, with quantity 1, rate of 10000.0, and amount 10,000
- Row 2: Buy product ETH, with quantity 10, rate of 1000.0, and amount 10,000
Other variants exist, but generally follow the patterns exemplified above.
