Follow these steps to download your Decred (DCR) data:

  1. For blockchains, it is usually best to sync your data through the auto-sync integration. If this is not an option for you, you can also import a CSV file.
  2. Open up your favorite block explorer for Decred (DCR)
  3. Search for your public address
  4. Find an export button (usually at the top or bottom of your transaction history)
