IMPORTANT NOTE: FTX and FTX.US have filed for bankruptcy and may not be available in your market. FTX customers have reported successfully signing into the claims portal at claims.ftx.com using their FTX account credentials. After verifying your email and completing recovery KYC, you can download a CSV of your transaction history from Step 4 (Balances and Transactions). To import your transactions into CoinLedger, be sure that you only import the "main_deposits, main_withdrawals, and main_trades" files. Alternatively, you can use our Universal Manual Import template.

For all questions related to this process, please reach out to FTX's Customer Support.

Legacy Import Instructions

CoinLedger only needs "Read" or "View" access to import your trade history. This permission protects your accounts. Learn more about API access in this article here.
