What does Swap mean

Hi,

what does the Swap tag actually mean? If I auto import transactions from BSC the trades on DEXes are recognized as swaps. Is this like a trade where I realized gains? Imho it has to be treated as a trade transaction where gains will be realized.
But then how do I tag an actual swap? When a token gets swapped to another token for technical reasons? This is also a swap but a swap where no gains should be realized. For example LEND got swapped to AAVE (100 LEND = 1 AAVE).

Thanks

Hi @benny739! For us, swaps are all those transactions that happen in dexes, but I will take note of your comment and get back to you on that.

Thanks. So a swap is like a trade, where gains will be realized?

  hey yes thats correct :)
