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.

Celsius API Limitations

Celsius has recently filed for bankruptcy and announced that on or around February 28, 2024, their app will no longer be available. Access to the Celsius platform and the records it contains will therefore only be available for a limited period of time as Celsius winds down its operations.

Additionally, Celsius does not export complete transaction data for fiat purchases made on exchange (buying crypto with fiat currency.) Celsius API only returns the crypto amount received and does not include the fiat amount spent. As a result, CoinLedger imports these transactions as deposits (non-taxable self-transfers). Refer to this guide for instructions for how to edit the Deposit transaction and change it to a Fiat Buy.
