How can you import crypto trades from unsupported exchanges to BearTax and be done with the tax calculations? 

We remember the time when BearTax had only a handful of exchanges. And now we support more than 50 exchanges. This did not happen suddenly and there was a lot of work that went into this module.

Our exchange support roll out process usually follows the below steps:

  1. starts with our customers posting questions about an exchange,
  2. Aggregate the exchange frequency from all the communication channels to rank them.
  3. Calcualte the weighted rank based on the upcoming tax season for the list of countries we support.
  4. Development process for the Exchange.


It is common for us, cryptocurrency traders, to trade on multiple exchanges to get access to several coins depending on their fundamental analysis or volatility or various other factors.

If you have traded on multiple exchanges, consolidation is a pain when calculating taxes. To help with this, there is software like BearTax to help you import crypto trades seamlessly from every possible exchange. 

In a remote case, if an exchange is not supported on our platform, there is another way you can import your trades from unsupported exchanges.
