As crazy as I am about CryptoStream (it’s my constant companion), the one thing it was never designed for was tax calculations. In other words, a system to track all your trading, keep track of overall profits and losses, and boil it all down at the end of the year into something meaningful and IRS-ready.

I stumbled upon Cointracker, which you can learn about here, in case you’re trading crypto. It has to grind awhile for a while to do the “wallet synch”, since the data in the crypto world is large and unwieldy, but it gets the job done. Below I’ve pasted my own chart from them, which shows the cash I keep throwing into my account (orange dotted line) and the total value (the blue line). The spread between them, I’m pleased to say, represents the profits.
