How do I audit my deposits and withdrawals?
Auditing your transactions is a good practice to ensure all transactions are properly displayed in your wallet. This also gives you the peace of mind that your wallet balance is exact, and up to date.
When auditing your wallet, all calculations need to be done in the digital asset you are evaluating and NOT the fiat counter value. For example, if you are auditing your Bitcoin wallet, you count each of your Bitcoin deposits and withdrawals to get your final Bitcoin balance. Audits cannot be done on fiat values (USD, GBP, Euros, etc.) because this value fluctuates depending on market conditions.
Your transactions can be audited by following these steps:
Before you start the audit, be sure you refresh your wallet. This refresh process rescans the blockchain, and makes sure Exodus has all the latest information on your balance, just in case you had a network problem or your internet connection was down.
Once your wallet refresh is complete, you can export your Exodus transaction history. You can either export the transaction history for a single asset, or for all of your assets. More instructions are available in this article:
How do I export my transaction history?
Once you have your transactions exported you will want to import the CSV file into a spreadsheet program such as Google Sheets, Numbers (on Mac), LibreOffice, or Microsoft Excel. This will give you a complete spreadsheet of all your transactions and allow you to start your audit.
At this point, you will need to look at your transactions, and count up your deposits. Make sure that all of your deposits are accounted for. You can cross-check the spreadsheet with a block explorer.
If you sent transactions to your Exodus wallet from an outside service or wallet, this is the time to make sure those are all listed and accounted for. If, for some reason, a deposit is not listed from an outside service or wallet, go to that service and see if they can provide you with a transaction ID for your withdrawal to Exodus.
After you are satisfied with your deposits, take a look at your withdrawals.
When adding up your withdrawal be sure to count the amount you sent as well as the the fees associated with sending the transaction. Each asset and transaction has the fee you paid in the transaction line.
Finally, take your total deposits and subtract your total withdrawals (including the fees) - this final number will be your final balance.
