How to connect Cardano 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.

Coinpanda will automatically sync all transactions from a Cardano public address you add. You will most likely find your public address after logging in to your Cardano wallet. Next, copy and paste the address into Coinpanda, and all transactions will be imported automatically!

Not sure how to find the public address of your wallet? We have written instruction articles for the most popular cryptocurrency wallets used today on our integration pages.

Remember that you must add all your wallet addresses to Coinpanda for your tax calculations to be accurate. This also includes wallet addresses you are not actively using anymore.

How are Cardano transactions taxed?

The exact tax implications on Cardano transactions depend on which country you live in and the type of transactions you have made. However, in most countries, you must generally pay capital gains tax on all Cardano transactions except transfers between your own wallets.

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

How do I file my Cardano taxes?

First, you must calculate capital gains from all taxable Cardano transactions. When this information is ready, you have everything you need to report capital gains in your annual tax return. However, the actual procedure for reporting crypto tax in the tax return might vary from country to country.

To calculate your capital gains, you must first export a complete history of all transactions made on the Cardano blockchain. 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 Cardano tax statements from Coinpanda, the last step is to report the capital gains 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 Cardano transactions to Coinpanda?

While we strive every day to ensure the highest possible accuracy for importing transactions from Cardano 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 Cardano API
  • Updated CSV file format
  • The Cardano API 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 any Cardano block explorer with the transactions imported into your Coinpanda account. See also our help article with an overview of known blockchain API limitations.
