Please note, if you have margin trade transactions in your Bitfinex account, API auto-sync can't import this transaction data just yet. Don't worry, you can use the CSV file import method below instead.

Good to know
When using the API integration method, it takes a couple of minutes for your data to sync in Koinly, especially if you have a lot of transactions. Once your data has synced, you may see a small yellow icon next to your Bitfinex wallet on Koinly. This is Koinly letting you know there's some issue with the data. This could be due to missing data, like if you've not synced up another wallet you moved funds to. Click on the icon and there will be a list of the transactions Koinly has identified issues with. You can learn how to fix these issues here.
