HashChain Technology Now Supports The Bittrex Exchange one of the Worldâ€™s Largest Cryptocurrency Exchanges
Vancouver, BC, May 9, 2018 - HashChain Technology Inc. (“HashChain” or the “Company”) (TSXV: KASH; OTCQB: HSSHF) today announced that their cryptocurrency accounting software, Balance, will support the Bittrex exchange, allowing quick and secure automated digital currency financial reporting for their users. Bittrex currently facilitates trades between more than 190 digital currencies including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, NEO, OmiseGO, Dash, Nexium, Siacoin and Zcash in a highly secure environment. With this integration, Balance now supports three leading cryptocurrency exchanges, including Coinbase and Gemini.
Balance is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offering that allows cryptocurrency users to generate a fiat denomination ledger by analyzing the blockchain to report capital gains and losses. Users can directly upload their wallets or accounts on the aforementioned exchanges, where Balance calculates exact values of each transaction and tracks the cost basis and days carried. Once the gains and losses are calculated, the software automatically details the information on a worksheet that can be shared with a CPA to file with other tax items.
“Even though tax guidelines for cryptocurrency have been around since 2014, it has been only recent mainstream adoption driving heavy enforcement of these guidelines,” said Patrick Gray, CEO of HashChain. “We will continue to build upon our Balance solution, adding new exchanges and functionality to ensure that every coin holder has simple and secure means of reporting their gains and losses to their respective government entities.”
Balance is currently available to all first-time users as a complimentary service they can use to ensure all taxable events are accounted for and reported correctly. Considering that the IRS can conduct audits six years back and the agency has indicated that they will be taking a close look at crypto holder’s filings, it is imperative that all transactions are accurately accounted for.
