How to connect Bitstamp with API

We are only requesting view permissions. This does not give us access to your private keys or the ability to move your funds.

Follow these steps to add your Bitstamp account to Coinpanda with API:

  1. Click the user icon in the top-right corner, then ‘Settings’, and select the ‘API access’ tab
  2. Click ‘New API key’ and enable permissions only for ‘Read main account balances and transactions’
  3. Click ‘Create new API key’ and enter the 2FA code
  4. Copy the API key and API secret to Coinpanda
  5. Click the ‘Activate API key’ button
  6. Confirm the API key via the verification email

Coinpanda will import a single transaction for each completed order instead of individual trade transactions. This is done to make it easier to verify the accuracy of the transactions imported and to reduce the total calculation time. You will therefore see fewer transactions imported into your Coinpanda account compared to other similar tax platforms.

How are Bitstamp transactions taxed?

The exact tax implications on Bitstamp transactions depend on which country you live in and the type of transactions you have made. In general, you must pay either capital gains tax or income tax on your cryptocurrency transactions on Bitstamp.

  • Capital gains tax: Whenever you sell a cryptocurrency for more than you purchased it for, you generate a capital gain. On the other hand, if you sell the cryptocurrency for less than you paid initially, you have a capital loss, which can offset other gains in most cases.
  • Income tax: Earned cryptocurrency on Bitstamp, such as staking, interest, bonuses, and referral rewards, is typically seen as taxable income from a tax perspective and must be reported in your tax return.

To learn more about how Bitstamp transactions are taxed in your country, we recommend reading our in-depth guides to cryptocurrency taxes.

How do I file my Bitstamp taxes?

First, you must calculate capital gains and income from all taxable transactions on Bitstamp. When you have this information ready, you can report capital gains and income together with other forms of income such as employment and dividends in your annual tax return.

To calculate your capital gains, you must first export a complete history of all transactions made on Bitstamp. Once you have this data, you can calculate your capital gains or losses by determining the price at which you bought the cryptocurrency (your cost basis) and the price at which you sold it (your proceeds). Luckily, Coinpanda can help you with this and generate ready-to-file tax forms quickly and easily.

After downloading your Bitstamp tax statements from Coinpanda, the last step is to report the capital gains and income on your tax return before the deadline. Most countries allow you to self-declare taxes online in 2023, but you can also get help from a professional tax accountant to file taxes for you.

How do I troubleshoot the imported Bitstamp transactions to Coinpanda?

While we strive every day to ensure the highest possible accuracy for importing transactions from Bitstamp to Coinpanda, it can happen that either not all transactions are imported or that some data is imported incorrectly. Some reasons for this can be:

  • Changes in the Bitstamp API
  • Updated CSV file format
  • Bitstamp does not provide a complete record of all transactions

To get the best help from Coinpanda support, you must first identify which transactions are missing or incorrectly imported. To do this, we recommend comparing your transaction history on Bitstamp with the transactions imported into your Coinpanda account.
