Some of you might notice that your profit or portfolio balance is a bit different in Delta Investment Tracker (Delta 4.0) compared to earlier versions of Delta. This is to be expected because we have implemented improved profit/loss calculations and included some bug fixes! Here are a few reasons why numbers might be different:
Delta 4.0 and above
Available Cash / Fiat Holdings
Available Cash balance may or may not be included in the portfolio total (there is an option in Settings to control this).
Fiat balances (USD, EUR, AD, etc.) were included in the portfolio total all the time.
Cost Basis of Airdrops / Forks / Mining
Costs of assets obtained from airdrops, mining, forks is equal to their Fair Market Value (FMV) at that time (this is as per requirement of most countries' regulations for gains calculations.)
Costs of assets obtained from airdrops, mining, forks was assumed to be 0.
Simplified conversions from crypto prices to fiat prices
Prices are converted from the crypto prices to fiat using Delta's global average. Example: If price of ETH in terms of BTC is 0.03 BTC on Binance, that is converted to fiat using Delta's BTC/USD global average.
Prices were converted from crypto prices to fiat using a complex set of rules.
Treatment of fees in calculating gains (bugfix)
Fees are included correctly. Example: If you sold 1 BTC/USD for $19000 and there was a fee of $50, your net proceeds will show $18950
Older versions had an error where if there was a fee in fiat, it was not calculated correctly.
Example: If you sold 1 BTC/USD for $19000 and there was a fee of $50, your net proceeds should have been $18950 but Delta showed proceeds of $19000 itself.
