How do I audit my deposits and withdrawals?
Exodus allows you to export your entire transaction history and audit your wallet. This is a good step to take in order to make sure all deposits were properly credited into your wallet. This also gives you the peace of mind that your wallet balance is exact. To export your transaction, you'll need to open the developer menu and then navigate to "Export Transactions."
When auditing your wallet, all calculations need to be done in the digital asset you are evaluating and NOT the 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 by the minute depending on market conditions.
Note: Starting with version 1.39.3, the transaction history is included in the Safe report.
Each of your Exodus wallets can be audited independently by following these steps:
1. Before you start the audit, be sure you refresh your wallet. This refresh process goes out to the digital asset blockchain and makes sure Exodus has all the latest information on your account. If you had a network problem or your internet connection was down, this step makes sure your account has the latest state.
2. Once you wallet refresh is complete you will want to Export your Exodus transaction history. The Export Transactions feature will export a text file of all of your transactions for a certain asset into a text file on your desktop. This text file can then be imported into a spreadsheet to review your entire transaction history.
In order to export your transactions, you will choose Export Transactions from the advanced developer menu. More details here: https://support.exodus.io/article/77-does-exodus-have-advanced-export-options
3. Once you have your transactions exported you will want to import your transactions into 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.
4. At this point, you will want to look at your transactions and count up your deposits. Make sure that all of your deposits are accounted for. 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 other service and see if they issued the payment and can provide you with a transaction ID for your confirmation.
5. After you are satisfied with your deposits, you want to look at your withdrawals next. When adding up your withdrawal be sure you not only add up the amounts you sent but the fees associated with sending the asset. Each asset and transaction has the fee you paid in the transaction line.
6. Finally, take your total deposits and subtract your total withdrawals this final number will be your final balance.
