What is a deposit, withdrawal, trade, and transfer?
There are four main transaction types in Divly that fundamentally represent all transactions in Divly.
Deposit: Receive crypto to your wallet.
Withdrawal: Send crypto out of your wallet.
Trade: Exchange one cryptocurrency for another cryptocurrency or fiat currency.
Transfer: Send crypto between two wallets you own.
A deposit is a transaction that occurs when you receive crypto to your wallet.
Deposits can include many types of crypto transactions (what we call labels in Divly) which affect your taxes differently. How these labels affect your taxes depends on your country (found in your Divly Settings). These labels include but may not be limited to:
|Airdrop||Received crypto through an airdrop|
|Fork||Received crypto through a blockchain fork|
|Received Gift||Received crypto as a gift from another party|
|Mining||Earned crypto through mining activities|
|Staking Reward||Earned crypto through staking activities|
|Interest Received||Earned interest from lending out crypto / interest account|
|Income||Earned crypto through wages or other income|
|Reward||Earned crypto through participating through incentive programs|
|Realized Profit||Profit from a short/long margin trade or futures trade|
By default, Divly assumes you have purchased crypto at the daily market rate when a deposit occurs. This means that the value of the deposit in local currency on that day will be considered your purchase price (this affects your cost basis).
You can change this by going to the Transactions page in Divly, click on the Deposit transaction, and edit the Transaction Value to match what the acquisition price was in your local currency. Some labels will default this value to 0 in specific countries.
A withdrawal occurs when you send crypto out of your wallet.
Withdrawals can include many types of crypto transactions (what we call labels in Divly) which affect your taxes differently. How these labels affect your taxes depends on your country (found in the Divly Settings). These labels include but may not be limited to:
|Gifted Away||Sent crypto as a gift to another party|
|Lost/Stolen||No longer have access to coins due to loss or theft|
|Donation||Donated crypto to a registered charity|
|Goods/Services||Purchased goods or services using crypto|
|Other Expense||Any other cost or expense you paid for in crypto|
|Interest Paid||Paid interest for borrowing crypto|
|Realized Loss||Loss from a short/long margin trade or futures trade|
By default, Divly assumes you have sold your crypto at the daily market rate when a withdrawal occurs. This means you will see a profit or loss for each withdrawal (with the exception of certain labels in specific countries).
You can change this by going to the Transactions page in Divly, click on the Withdrawal transaction, and edit the Transaction Value to match what the disposal price was in your local currency. Some labels will default this value to 0 in specific countries.
A trade occurs when you exchange one cryptocurrency for another cryptocurrency or fiat currency. There are four types of trades in Divly:
|Buy||Purchase crypto with a fiat currency|
|Sell||Sell crypto for a fiat currency|
|Traded Crypto||Exchange one crypto for another crypto (e.g. BTC for ETH)|
|Traded Crypto||Exchange one fiat currency for another fiat currency (e.g. USD for EUR)|
In most countries a Sell or Traded Crypto is considered to be a taxable event. Please read your local country's crypto tax guide to understand how the different trade types are taxed in your country.
Trades also often incur trading fees which affects your taxes. You can read more about how Divly handles trading fees in this article.
A transfer represents a transaction between two of your wallets. For example, when you send crypto from an exchange to a hardware wallet or vice versa.
Transfers are created by matching a withdrawal from one wallet with a deposit in another wallet. You can read more about transfers and the matching process on this page. It is important to ensure that transfers are matched correctly in order to calculate your crypto taxes correctly.
Transfers typically do not represent taxable events as the wallets are owned by the same person. However, in some countries the transfer fee is seen as a disposal and is therefore expected to be included in your capital gains calculations. Divly handles this automatically based on your country. It can be toggled on and off in your Tax Settings.
