How inventory is calculated

The Inventory report displays a list of all of the transactions used in your other inventory reports (such as FIFO) in chronological order. This is so you can review your historical transactions and their values, and check that everything has been calculated appropriately.

Currently CryptFolio only supports a single inventory method (FIFO), but in the future we will support other inventory calculation methods. From the Inventory report you can access your Balances report or the FIFO report for your portfolio.


The inventory for a currency, is a sum of all of the transactions in each of your portfolio accounts in that currency, that have a transaction type specified.

For example, if you had one accounts with the following transactions:

Txn ID Amount Txn Type
#1 + 1.0 BTC Purchase
#2 - 0.5 BTC Sale
#3 + 2.0 BTC (none)

The inventory balance would be 1.0 - 0.5 = 0.5 BTC, because transaction #3 would not be included in the inventory.


For each of the transactions in your portfolio, that are denominated to the report currency, the following fields are displayed:

Column Description
Date The date of the transaction
Account The account that the transaction belongs to
Type The transaction type: Purchase, Sale, or Transfer
Reference The transaction reference
Delta The amount of the transaction, and the currency of the transaction
Rate The composite rate that we will use to calculate the value of the transaction
Value The calculated value of the transaction, using the composite rate

For any composite rate, you can view which exchanges were used to calculate the rate, by clicking on the (?) next to the rate:
