Custom tokens in Accointing
Accointing pulls price information from CoinMarketCap to keep you up-to-date with the value of your portfolio in the volatile crypto market. CMC has the most well-known currencies listed but many small-cap altcoins are not yet listed there.
Recently Accointing introduced a new feature that lets users create their own custom tokens for coins and tokens that are not listed on CoinMarketCap and therefore not automatically recognized by Accointing.
Before creating custom token transactions a wallet is needed. You can create a new wallet for the custom tokens or add custom tokens to an existing wallet.
Creating a new wallet
Go to the Wallets page in Accointing and create a new wallet by giving it a name like "Custom Token Wallet", clicking on it and choosing "Type data manually".
Now that the wallet has been created we can start adding our custom token transactions to it.
Adding custom token transactions to the wallet
We can add transactions to the wallet we just created by clicking on the pen icon on the top right, and choosing the "Form" option.
Clicking on the "Form" opens up the view where we can create custom token transactions.
First, we determine the type of transaction (Deposit, Withdraw, Order, Internal), the date and time of the transaction, amount and other regular information that is needed when creating a trade.
Create a custom token by writing the name of the unsupported token to the Currency box and clicking on the "Add as a new currency".
Next, we input the transacted amount of tokens by filling the Amount box and the USD price of the transaction by clicking on the "Edit" button under the Custom token we just created.
In this example we are depositing 150 custom tokens and the value of deposited funds is $150, which makes the price per token $1.
Now we click on save, and we can see the custom tokens listed on our Wallet in the Wallet-page and also the transaction listed on the Full Data Set.
Now we have successfully created a deposit for our custom token. It is important to remember that selling / transferring the tokens does not automatically get tracked by Accointing and we need to create another manual transaction for that.
