How it works

  1. Visit Basenode.io and log in by connecting a wallet with the website or by using your Google account
  2. Make sure you connected all the wallets you want to create a transaction report for. You can connect new wallets by choosing “Wallets” at the top of the website and clicking the “Add Wallet” button. We currently support the Ethereum, Bitcoin, Ronin, Polygon, Binance Smart Chain and Fantom blockchains. You can also add your accounts from centralized exchanges like Binance.
  3. Navigate to the “Documents” section at the top and then switch to “Report”. If you already created reports in the past, you will see them now. To create a new one, click the “Create Report” button.
  4. Enter a meaningful name for your report, so you can identify it later. You will then be confronted with 3 possible options of reports you can create.
  • The Transaction report lists all your transactions
  • The QuickBooks report can be easily imported in the “QuickBooks” bookkeeping software if you want to use it
  • The holdings report lists all your current crypto holdings and values

In this tutorial, we choose the transaction report, but you can choose the kind of report that fits you the best. Select all the wallets that you want to include in the report and finally choose the timeframe for which the report should be created, then click on continue.

You should now see your report appearing in the list. Click on the three dots on your report to have the option to export it as a PDF or CSV file to your computer. You can also edit it later.
