There are some things exchange account connections do not import

Exchange Account Connections can generally import normal buy and sell trades, deposit and withdrawal information from the exchange. Deposits and withdrawals are only imported if the "Import withdrawals/deposits"  toggle is turned ON while adding the connection.

However, exchange account connections have many limitations and are not a one-stop solution. Due to the following limits, your imported balances in Delta may not match what is reported on the exchange. Here is a list of known limitations as well as what types of transactions we do support:

Delta does not support margin transactions

Margin trades done on an exchange may not be imported correctly or imported at all. Supporting margin trades is on our roadmap but there is no ETA at this time.

General Limitations

Almost all exchange connections do not expose the following in their API:

  • Delisted Coins

  • Forked Coins

  • Air Drops

  • Staking

  • Distributions (GAS, VTHO, etc.)

  • Farming

  • Referral Bonuses

  • Sub Account Trades

  • Margin Trades

  • Stop-Limit Orders

  • Rewards

  • Conversions

Binance

  • Staking rewards will be imported from your Earn wallet, but the balances themselves will not show until your move the balances back from Earn to Spot.

  • Binance is not providing certain coin purchases for fiat from the "Cash balance". They can only be entered manually.

  • We do not import the distribution history via the Binance Connection. These are forked coins, airdrops, commissions, and GAS distributions. They have to be entered manually.

  • Delta will not import transactions for coins with 0 balances and 0 withdrawals and 0 deposits. For example, if you bought a coin XYZ and sold it completely (i.e. its balance in Binance is zero) and never deposited or withdrew XYZ then the app will not import any XYZ trades. To import such trades open the Binance connection, tap on the 3 dots and run a "Full Sync" while keeping the app open.

  • If you traded any discontinued (delisted) coins like BCN, BTM, BTT, CHAT, CTR, ELC, EOP, HCC, HSR, HS, ICN, LLT, RPX, TRIG or VEN, these need to be added manually as the API does not expose them.

  • Stop-limit orders and margin trades are not imported.

KuCoin

  • Delta will not import transactions for coins with 0 balances and 0 withdrawals and 0 deposits. For example, if you bought a coin XYZ and sold it completely (i.e. its balance in KuCoin is zero) and never deposited or withdrew XYZ then the app will not import any XYZ trades.

Bitfinex

  • At the moment, we do not support the import of margin trades so these may be imported incorrectly.

  • Settlements are not imported.


Automatic Balance Adjustments

A deposit or withdrawal entry is automatically created to match the balance of the coin to that on the exchange when there are API limitations that prevent the import of full trade history. An Automatic Balance Adjustment is created in the following situations:

  • Automatic Balance Adjustment happens only once if the exchange connection is for Binance, Binance US, Bittrex, Huobi, or Poloniex.

  • Automatic Balance Adjustments happen on every sync if the exchange connection is CEX, KuCoin, Bitpanda, Coinspot, Okx, Crypto.com, and Swyftx.

  • You have enabled "Import all transactions" 

  • You have no existing manual transactions for that exchange

This entry will have a note explaining that it is an "automatically generated transaction to adjust balance...".
