What if I trade cryptocurrencies not supported by Sharesight?
If you trade cryptocurrencies that are not supported by Sharesight, you can still track your investments by adding a custom investment into your Sharesight portfolio.
To add a custom investment, simply click ‘Add holding’ on the Overview or Holdings page, and select ‘Manually add a trade’. Then once you're on the manual holding screen, select 'Add a custom investment' from the top right-hand corner.
When entering a cryptocurrency custom investment into Sharesight, make sure to select the country of the fiat currency used to purchase your cryptocurrency.
Once you have created a custom investment, you will be redirected to the manual holding screen to add details such as the trade date, trade type, quantity and price. To track the performance of your crypto investment in your portfolio, simply update the price movements by uploading a spreadsheet of prices or manually entering the price movements on a regular basis.
If you are tracking custom crypto investments along with the rest of the stocks in your portfolio, it is also advised that you classify your investments using the custom groups feature to easily differentiate between these different asset classes.
If you commonly trade cryptocurrencies on international exchanges, you might prefer to see the values denominated in a particular fiat currency such as USD (if you trade USD/XBT pairs, for example). However, if the fiat currency differs from the currency of the tax residency of your Sharesight portfolio, you will need to add a separate Sharesight portfolio with a tax residency that uses that particular fiat currency.
