Disadvantages 

Due to the enormous diversity and constant growth of the crypto world, the challenge arises to unify them in one platform while avoiding errors for transparent tax reporting. This is exactly where clients need to be diligent about the setups and maintenance at CoinTracking. For example, those who trade on multiple exchanges but do not import transactions from one exchange will receive incomplete reports. For entries that are done manually, inputs & outputs must be maintained according to the double-entry principle.

To cope with this sometimes more complex setup, CoinTracking offers fast and free assistance through its support and guides customers through all the necessary steps. In addition, automatic features and checks, such as the Live API Check, can be used to detect and correct missing or incorrect imports. Due to the variety of functionalities, CoinTracking is mainly aimed at advanced and professional traders as well as companies. Of course, CoinTracking can also be used by beginners, who can use the software completely free of charge for up to 200 transactions.

User-friendliness 

The platform has evolved over the years and constant customer feedback into user-friendly software. On every page and for every feature, the customer receives instructions and explanations. In addition, the detailed FAQ and support (24/7) can be used.

In some areas, users get the possibility to switch between a compact and detailed view. Moreover, one can use filters on all reports to get exactly the data one needs. The mobile app is another way to view data quickly and clearly.

Fees 

CoinTracking offers four different packages. For beginners and those who want to test, the Free Account can be used completely free of charge with up to 200 transactions. With a trade volume of more than 200 transactions and the desire of automatic API connections, users can choose the Pro/Expert or Unlimited variant. The prices for the paid packages start at $10.99 and end with the Unlimited variant at $54.99 per month.

A significant reduction of the package prices can be obtained by taking out a 2-year package (from $8.49 per month). In addition, only CoinTracking offers the possibility to purchase a lifetime license with a one-time payment in order to be able to use the account permanently. For corporate customers, such as tax firms, trading companies, funds managers, etc., CoinTracking offers an account-based pricing model, i.e. unlimited sub-accounts can be created, which become cheaper as the number increases.

Currently, requests can be handled in German and English. However, the team is constantly growing and more languages will follow. 

In addition to the support, the documentation and the FAQs are important sources of information for arising questions and problems. Recently, CoinTracking has started offering video tutorials that explain reports and help with problem-solving. The FAQs are constantly being developed and include all previously addressed support tickets, so the community can directly participate in the knowledge transfer.

No personal data is required when registering and using the platform. If desired, registration can even be done without providing an email address. In this case, however, CoinTracking cannot reset passwords should the user forget them.
