Common issues with importing transactions from BitForex

The BitForex API doesn’t allow trades from delisted pairs or trades carried out before October 30th, 2020 to be synchronized. If the data are a few rows, you can manually insert them, but the alternative option is to use the CSV import method. 

The BitForex API is also limited in that it syncs transaction data for a short timeframe. As such, it may not provide enough data to generate comprehensive tax reports. The best is to use the CSV import option.

With the CSV import, BitForex doesn’t include transactions before October 30th, 2020, and therefore will have to be downloaded separately.
