How to connect Bybit 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 Bybit account to Coinpanda with API:

  1. Hover over the user icon in the top-right corner and select ‘API’
  2. Click ‘Create New Key’
  3. Keep the ‘API Transaction’ option selected, give your key a name (Ex: Coinpanda), and select ‘No IP restriction’
  4. Select all the options below for ‘Permission’ and click ‘Submit’
  5. Enter the email verification code and 2FA code, then click ‘Confirm’
  6. Copy the API Key and API Secret to Coinpanda

The API keys created will automatically expire after three months. After this period, you must create new API keys to sync new transactions to your Coinpanda wallet. If you get an error after syncing, please check that the API keys are still active before contacting Coinpanda support.

Spot trades can only be imported from the last year (365 days). You will need to upload a CSV file in addition in case you have older spot trades than this.

Timestamp adjustment

The Bybit API reports realized pnl only once daily at midnight UTC. You might see a negative balance warning on the Transactions page if you have either withdrawn or sold a coin before it was credited to your account. The solution to this problem is changing the timestamp for either the Realized P&L or the Trade/Send/Withdrawal transaction so they will be arranged correctly.

In the example below, we will need to change the timestamp of the Receive (Realized P&L) or Trade transaction to appear in the reverse order.

How to connect Bybit with CSV

Follow these steps to export your transactions from Bybit:

The best way to export your history from Bybit is to request a complete data export:

Request Data Export

  1. Log in to your Bybit account and click on ‘Help Center’ in the footer
  2. Click on ‘Submit Case’ in the top header
  3. In the first dropdown, select ‘Bybit account login, KYC and other requests’
  4. In the next dropdown, select ‘Data export request’
  5. Click ‘Yes’
  6. Copy + paste the following into the first field:
    Assets history, closed profits and losses, spot trade history
  7. Enter a date range covering all your transactions, CSV format, your UID, email address
  8. Copy + paste the following into the last field:
    I need a complete data export of my transaction history for tax purposes. Please provide the requested reports for all years I have traded on Bybit
  9. Click on Submit, and wait for the files to be sent to your email address
  10. Upload the CSV file(s) to Coinpanda when you have received the reports

While we have support for all three files, we recommend uploading only the Assets history CSV file, which contains your entire transaction history for both spot and derivatives.

If you have not received the reports after waiting five days, you can contact Bybit customer support via their live chat or email support.

You must also upload the Earn History CSV file since Bybit Earn transactions are not included in the Assets History CSV file.

Earn History

  1. Hover over ‘Assets’ and select ‘Earn’
  2. Click ‘History’ in the top-right corner
  3. Click ‘Export’
  4. Select ‘Customize’ and specify a period. The maximum date range is six months, so you may need multiple CSV files to export your complete transaction history.
  5. Click ‘Export’ and download the file when ready
  6. Upload the CSV file(s) to Coinpanda

How are Bybit transactions taxed?

The exact tax implications on Bybit 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 Bybit.

  • 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 Bybit, 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 Bybit transactions are taxed in your country, we recommend reading our in-depth guides to cryptocurrency taxes.

How do I file my Bybit taxes?

First, you must calculate capital gains and income from all taxable transactions on Bybit. 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 Bybit. 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 Bybit 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 Bybit transactions to Coinpanda?

  • Changes in the Bybit API
  • Updated CSV file format
  • Bybit 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 Bybit with the transactions imported into your Coinpanda account.
