Common issues with importing transactions from Gate.io
Gate.io API does not sync data such as lockup, staking, airdrops, hard forks, dust sweep, and margin trades. As such, you may notice some omissions in your synced data. If that is the case for you, remove the API integration and start importing data through CSV.
Also when downloading your CSV file, Gate.io restricts each file to only 1,000 trades. If your trades are more than this limit, you can request the Gate.io support team for a full transaction history file.
