Manual entry of tokens (those not listed on CoinmarketCap)

I understand that Accointing is only listing / entering tokens which are listed on CMC. However I own a couple of defi tokens which are not available but I need to account for in my tax return. How can I solve this problem or could you add a function to add a token (& update price on regular basis) manually?

I have the same problem and would appreciate a manual function, because of course I have to document my trades and I have bought security tokens with Bitcoin … The BTCs are entered in the Accointing and appear in my wallet, but in reality I have they no longer

hey! thanks for the message, have added this to our roadmap :slightly_smiling_face:

Will this feature come soon?

Depends what defines soon :slight_smile:
But yes its on our priority list.

Hi Alex,
I think a lot of users are waiting for the “Custom Tokens”. Is there anything new? Can you promise a point in time when this will be finished?

Hi Alex, can you provide us with insights on when approximately to expect this feature? Right now, some of us, including myself, are trading coins that are not listed on CMC, and not having a way to accurately and automatically track them defeats the purpose of the solution you are offering to your customers.
Thanks, A.

Thanks Alex. When can we expect that?

Great to hear about that upcoming feature - I need this in this season’s tax report. This is the last thing I need to switch from Cointracking.

Is there a way to circumvent the lack of tokens in accointing in the meantime?

Great suggestion and urgently needed. I wonder how people solved this problem until now?
If there is a custom token functionality we could use the token address from etherscan/bscscan/… and save it with the custom token. Whenever this token gets officially listed, Accointing could remind us that this token is now ready to switch over to the automatic tracking.

As long as the token is “custom” we are self responsible for the price data at the time of trades. This seems quite manageable for me.
